The end of August is just ahead of us and so many things have changed from last year.
Ya, I'm a little bit exhausted already but it's a good kind of tired.
How about you?
What have you done differently already this year?
Has it been an incredibly good year for you?
Can you join with me and say:
So far, so good..........................
Today I am going to be a light-hearted and pass on a little sage advice that has been floating around the internet for a while.
I don’t know who the author is but it is smart council and needs to be spread among our over 50 Baby Boomer community.
I recommend that you read this one over and over until it becomes part of who you are.
If you like these words of wisdom then pass them on to your Baby Boomer friends.
Just click on these links............

1. Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
"Tried everything twice and loved it both times!"
As far as she was concerned, if it was good the first time, why stop?
2. Surround yourself with only positive, cheerful and useful friends.
Some say you are the average of the 10 closest friends you keep.
Fire the friends that cannot help you be a better person.
The grouches pull you down, the negative diminish your passion and the lazy serve no purpose.
3. Keep learning.
Learn more about the computer, the internet, crafts, gardening, travel, whatever.
Learn a new language or how to play an instrument.
Study new cultures or a new philosophy.
Never let your brain get idle.
You’ve probably heard the old adage: "If you don’t use it you will lose it."
That is never more powerful than at our age.
4. Enjoy the simple things in life.
Cherish and become absorbed in the smell of a morning rain, the taste of a plate of beans, the sound of children laughing, a song on the radio.
I have always said: "Plan for the big things and don't sweat the little things."
To me all things are little things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
If you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him/her.
6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with you your entire life is yourself.
LIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love.
If it makes YOU happy keep it near you.
Whether it's family, friends, 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.
Don't ever miss a chance.
11. Reconnect with true friends that you have lost touch with.
We all know that sometimes life can get in the way of living.
If they are true friends, it will seem like you were never apart.
12. Forgive now those who hurt you or made you cry.
You might not get a second chance.
Lost time can never be found.
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
If you found my blog interesting or helpful, I bet your friends would to so please forward it to them or tell them about it.
The more Baby Boomers we can help the better place we make this world !!!
Thanks for joining me.......................................................................
