(Absolutely Brilliant)IF YOU DON’T READ THIS TO THE VERY END, YOU HAVE LOST A DAY IN YOUR LIFE. AND WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED, DO AS I AM DOING AND SEND IT ON.George Carlin’s Views on AgeingDo you realise that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about ageing that you think in fractions.’How old are you?’ ‘I’m fourand a half!’You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the keyYou get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.’How old are you?’ ‘I’mgonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life …. . You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony.. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!! But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?You BECOME 21, youTURN 30, then you’rePUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!So you BECOME 21,TURN 30, PUSH40,REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.You’ve built up so much speed that youHIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘IWas JUST 92.’Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!HOW TO STAY YOUNG1. Throw out nonessential numbers.This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them’2. Keep only cheerful friends. 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.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 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.
And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares? But do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!Courtesy:Sri K.Raghavendra rao by mail.
