Happy Monday. It’s Summer! Maybe you feel it.
This is what we were wishing for in those frigid days of winter–so no complaining.
I found a list that I think could challenge us. It was titled, “How to Stay Young.”
I really think it could be, “How to Be Your Best.”
Keep company with cheerful people, the grouches pull you down (are you a grouch?).
Keep Learning. The computer, gardening, a new hobby. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop, and his name is “dementia.”
Enjoy simple things–sunshine, the sound of rain on the roof.
Laugh, often and loud, ’til you gasp for breath.
Tears happen! Endure, grieve–move on.
Live every day and be your own friend. The only human you will be with all your life is–YOU.
Your home is your refuge. Fill it with things you enjoy–plants, pets, whatever.
Cherish your health. If it is good, take care of it. If it’s not so good, improve it.
Don’t take guilt trips. Go to the mall, take a trip, but not where guilt is.
Tell those you love that you love them often.
Forgive those who have made you cry. Let it go.
Remember, lost time can never be found.
Live simply, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.
And as Bro. Hyles said so often, “Be good to everyone because everyone is having a tough time.”
