My friend sent this email to me and I do have some agreement and thoughts.

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height.
Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
* In term of age, yes and as for height, you can’t do much on it. But for weight hor, we also have to pay attention cos at the end of the day, we are the one who suffer.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)
* Cheerful person, you may get close to the grouches if you think you are able to cheer them up.

3. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!
* Hmmmm, quite sensitive to me when come to Alzheimer cos my poor mum is suffering this and does that mean my mum used to let her brain idle???????? Anyway, we can’t stop Alzheimer at current medical knowledge, right?

4. Enjoy the simple things
* Simple thing is what most of us are having and always tend to forget. So from now on, enjoy your life!

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!
* I agree. This is how I keep myself young loh, HAHAHAHAHAHA.

6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is yourself. LIVE while you are alive.
* Right! Cos no one can take away your happiness and sadness too, if you insisting of holding tight with you.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
* On the other word, HOME SWEET HOME.

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 a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
* Or else, you may as well stay at home.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
* I always do so, did you?
