Do 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.

Philosopgy for old age
'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half.
You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key

Philosopgy for old age
You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

Philosopgy for old age
'How old are you?'
'I'm gonna 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.

Philosopgy for old age
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?

Philosopgy for old age
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30,
then you're PUSHING 40.... Whoa!
Put on the brakes,
it's all slipping away.
Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone

Philosopgy for old age
But wait!!!
You MAKE it to 60.
You didn't think you would!

Philosopgy for old age
So you BECOME 21,
TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50
and MAKE it to 60.

Philosopgy for old age
You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
After that it's a day-by-day thing;

Philosopgy for old age
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;
'I Was JUST 92.'

Philosopgy for old age
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!!


Philosopgy for old age
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... 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

Philosopgy for old age
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.

Philosopgy for old age
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.

Philosopgy for old age
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 that you love them,
at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
