 How to Stay Young – Author Unknown*

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This  includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That  is why you pay ‘them.’

2. Keep  only cheerful friends. The  grouches pull you down.

3. Keep  learning. Learn more  about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain  idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’

4. Enjoy  the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long  and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure,  grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves (and GOD). Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether  it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is  good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a  trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.


Life  is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by  the moments that take our breath away. Worry  about nothing, pray about everything!!!

 We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!
