Life is Short - Live Each Day...
by Irwin L
I am back after galavanting around the NE for the past two months.
While we are still enjoying our retirement, our recent escapades found us remembering how fast things can change once we reach a certain age. Why do I say that? Because at the end of our recent adventure with friends and family, we learned how vulnerable we are and thus why we should make it a point to face each day with a smile on our face and live that day as though it may be our last.
Suffice it to say that two of my very close relatives (one is my twin) suffered severe unexpected medical setbacks and are presently weighing each day very carefully as to what might be in store for them down the road.
What does this mean to you or I? Just this - we never know what tomorrow might bring so spend today enjoying that which you have and not spend time on worrying about what you don't have. Life itself is a precious gift and I am a firm believer that if we have our health, 95 percent of the battle of what to do in retirement is already taken care of.
Enjoy each day to the fullest. Smile and take into consideration the fact that many others may very well have things much worse than you do.
I am grateful every day to have a loving family, devoted wife, healthy children who are coping quite well themselves, and still have the ability to get out there and line dance, and still do the things that make our days enjoyable.
Life is short - eat all the chocolate you can ..... NOW!
