Good Advice for Seniors

The following represents some good advice, shared with me some time ago.  While some of the counsel is more humorous than others, each bit of advice seems to carry a modicum of insight and advice.  Choose what is useful.  Discard the rest.  Author unknown.

  • The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship:  “I apologize” and “You are right.”
  • When you make a mistake, make amends immediately.  It’s easier to eat crow while it is still warm.
  • Learn to pick your battles; ask yourself, “Will this matter one year from now?  How about one month? One week?  One day.
  • Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect.  It just means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.
  • If you woke up breathing, congratulations!  You have another chance.
  • Nothing is quite so annoying as to have someone go right on talking while you’re  interrupting.
  • Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.
