Some Stuff About Me:

I'm a Minnesota Girl, living in the south. I tell my friends I try not to talk and think like a Yankee, but sometimes I slip up!

No original thoughts today.....

But I just got back to posting again, so I thought I'd share something that came across my desk a few days ago. You've probably seen it before, but it bears repeating:


1. 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, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's family 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.

Great advice. I hope things cool off there for you soon. May Fall be your season to shine. It has been a LONG, hot summer, hasn't it? Love & Blessings!!

Definitely worth reading again (and again and again!). The key is to follow the advice!

Can't see it enough! How true, how true! I even STILL have days when I feel like that little girl hanging upside down...I know...the visual as well as the possible results is scary! LOL!

I'm just glad you're posting again...and again...and again...!!! :)
