For your consideration.....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got this in an e-mail today, and thought it was worth sharing!


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age,
weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them.
That is why you pay him/her.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer,
crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain
idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop,"
The devil's name is Depression.

4. Enjoy the simple things. When the children are
young, that is all that you can afford. When they are
in college, that is all that you can afford. When you
are on retirement, that is all that you can afford.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp
for breath. Laugh so much that you can be tracked in
the store by your distinctive laughter.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The
only person who is with us our entire life, is
ourselves. Be alive while you are alive, don't put out
a mailbox on the highway of death and just wait in
residence for your mail.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it is
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. Go to the mall, the next
county, a foreign country, but not to guilt country.

10. Tell the people you love, that you love them, at
every opportunity. And always remember . . . Life is
not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by
the moments that take our breath away.

It takes a minute to find a special person
An hour to appreciate them
A day to love them
But then an entire life to forget them.

Its always good to be reminded of these things. It's way too easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind.

Thanks Jeanie!
