How to Stay Young and Live Life to the Fullest

1. Throw out nonessential numbers and factors.

This includes age, height, eye and skin color, who your parents

are, past stuff and present stuff that you can't change.

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

Who you are attached to will bless you up or mess you up.

Make sure that YOU are a cheerful friend and not a grouch.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts,

gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is

the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

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

5. Enjoy the simple things. Breath is one of the simple things.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. Don't blame

others for your situation. The only person, who is with us our

entire life, is ourselves. 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. Your body is the most important vehicle you will ever own.

9. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every


10. 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.

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