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.
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 them.
6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on
7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, etc.
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 city, state, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
Take these tips to heart and live your best life!
