THE WAFFLEMAN: Tips For Staying Young

Filed under: Columns,Subject Categories |

Yo! Here we go again with some important things that we all need to read about. Read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are! It will give you information on how to stay young.

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 will pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!) 3. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, and 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 or 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, and 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, go on a cruise to anywhere but do NOT go to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. Say it: I love you – you are very special to me. 11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance. 12. Don’t put it off doing something that you have planned to do till later – there may not be a later for you, and if you don’t tell this to at least 4 people – who cares?

But do share this with someone. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of personal battle. Do not add to their problems – they and you have enough to worry about. Wine does not make you FAT …- it makes you LEAN … (against tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly people.) Remember! Lost time can never be found. Life does have an expiration date. Make sure that you live life to its fullest and that you enjoy every minute of it.
