1. Throw out non essential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them.
That is why you pay 'them'

2. Keep only cheerful friends around you. 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
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. It is said that we can add years to our life by laughing long and often. You know how good you feel after you have laughed, so it must be true.

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.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home & family 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.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER - Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Do share this with someone because.......................

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

Worry about nothing, pray about everything!!!

What a wonderful list! It's a reminder to leave behind the things that don't work and to embrace - with lots of love and joy - all of the goodness that is around us. We just need to see it and open ourselves to it!

Thanks for the reminder!
