God  gave  us  the  gift  of  life;
it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.

Yesterday is history,  tomorrow is a mystery,
but today is a gift, that is why they call it   "The Present".


Often in life we forget the things we should remember and remember the things we should forget.

Wonder  Moments

Wonder where  I  parked the car ?
Wonder where  I  left my mobile phone ?
Wonder where my glasses are ?
Wonder what day it is ?

Age is an issue of mind over matter.
If you don’t mind,  it doesn’t matter.

Senior  Moments

Can get away with pretty much anything.
Wake up tired and go to bed wide awake.
Rolling out of bed in the morning is easy;
Getting up off  the floor  is another story.

Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.  As we get older, three things happen.  The first is where our memory goes, and we can't remember the other two.  The brain is like The Bermuda Triangle... Information goes in, and then it's’never found again.  Wine gets better with age, I get better with wine.  Age is a high price to pay for maturity.  We forget what we want to remember, and we remember what we want to forget.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live.  They say that with age comes wisdom.  Therefore, I don't have wrinkles.  I have wisdom cracks.  Some days I amaze myself.  I do not have
Alzheimer's.  I have "SOME TIMERS."  Sometimes I remember, and sometimes I don't.   Sometimes I try to get out of the car with my seat belt on.  I look for my phone while I’m talking on it, standing in the middle of the room, wondering what I came in here for.  I put something in a safe place so I don't lose it, then freakin' forget where that safe place is ?  I got it all together.  But I forgot where I put it.  I  remember it like it was yesterday, but I don’t really remember yesterday all that well.  Memory is the treasure house of the mind, wherein its monuments are kept and preserved.

We enter the world with nothing, and we leave the world with nothing.  Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late !  To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great  art of living
My body knows how old I am, but my mind refuses to believe it.  We'll  learn, as we get older, that rules are made to be broken.  Be bold enough to live life on our terms.  Sometimes it's the journey that teaches us a lot about our destination, about growing and changing.  Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.  Sometimes we will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.  Be Grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love.  Life is so very precious.  Never give up on the people you love.  You may be their only hope.

Life is a journey that has a lot of different paths, but any path we choose use it as our destiny.  We experience the world around us, understand its complexities, learn from our mistakes, improve beyond recognition, grow in real terms, help others to have better lives, value lives around us, and have great respect for moral worthiness.  Live as if we were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if we were to live forever.  Dream as if you'll live forever; live as if you'll die today.

Life is like ice cream.  Enjoy it before it melts.  Dance before the music is over; live before your life is over.  The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.  Be humble and never think that you are better than anyone else.  For dust you are, and unto dust you shall return.  At the end of the day, whether or not those people are comfortable with how you're living your life doesn't matter.  What matters is whether you're comfortable with it.  Dead people receive more flowers than living ones, because regret is stronger than gratitude.  There are more sincere kisses at the airport than wedding halls; and the walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of a church.

Life is precious, and when you've lost a lot of people, you realize each day is a gift.  Don't take life for granted.  In the blink of an eye, everything can change.  So forgive often and love with all your heart.  You may never know when you may not have that chance again.  Be grateful for life.  Not everyone made it this far.  If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summers day.  If you aren't grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.  Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals.  The truly rich are those who enjoy what they have.

Age is just a number.  Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.  At the end of life, age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.  What really matters is not what we bought but what we built; not what we got but what we shared; not our competence but our character; and not our success but our significance.  Live a life that matters.  Don't worry about getting old; worry about thinking old.  Nothing feels better than the privilege of being alive.  What a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.  You never know how much time you have left.

Love is the only memory one never loses.  Respect the old when you are young.  Help the weak when you are strong.  Confess your faults when you are wrong.  Because one day you will be old, weak, and wrong.  Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, and love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Appreciate every moment of your life because one day you'll wish you had more TIME.
