1. Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of Wheelman's and Madam)
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

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.

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


  1. Excellent advice! I think I do most of these things - what I find is that recently, stress is the great ager. I'm working on getting that down. Hope I win.

  2. Great post! Gotta let go of the negative if we're going to stay positive.

  3. Well said you two- and I wonder how many faces or guises Stress takes that we think aren't STRESSFUL? I'll bet we would be surprised at the number of innocuous things that we think maybe restful are actually stressful when all is said and done in our bodies!


  4. Good tips. I need to practice some of those more often.

  5. Beautifully written.
    Eloquent in an unconventionally hitting way.
