> George Carlin’s Views on Aging
>
> Do you realize 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 aging that you think in fractions.
>
> "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
>
> You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the

> next number, or even a few ahead.
>
> "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 . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
>
> 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?
>
> 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.
>
> But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!
>
> So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
>
> You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a
> day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!
>
> 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."
>
> 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!!
>
>
> HOW TO STAY YOUNG
> 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.
>
> 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.
>
>
> AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
> Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the
> moments that take our breath away.
>
>
> And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares? But do
> share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each
> day!!
