How To Stay Young . . . . .

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Good Thursday Sparkfam! Just thinking of a few ways to add years to my life & I know laughter definitely works! Let's laugh together!! WOOHOO!


1. Try everything twice.

On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:

"Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"

2. Keep only cheerful friends.

The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...

Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'

And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud.

Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,

spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6.. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on.

The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.

LIVE 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.

I love you, my special friend.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance..

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Wine does not make you FAT ....

it makes you LEAN ....

(Against tables, chairs, floors, walls and nice people.)

God bless & Have a great day!

    I LOVED IT!! How are you Dee? I'm hanging in there with a vengeance! Glory to God. I'm printing this for my office. A daily reminder that I have one life to live and I have to LIVE like it! You really hit the nails on the head today. We have to let go and move on. Enjoy everything because the Lord has so much more than what you left behind. Because if we are always lookin back, we cant appreciate the view and blessings ahead.

Keep Sparkin
