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 ?

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.

Age is an issue of mind over matter.
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live.  Aging is not a loss of youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.  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.  Age is a high price to pay for maturity.  We forget what we want to remember, and we remember what we want to forget.  If you have dreams to achieve, you are still young.

My face carries all my memories.  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.  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.

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 
Be grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love.  Never give up on the people you love.  You may be their only hope.

youth may move and walk faster, but it's the elders who know the road.  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.

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.  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.  The silence of a loved one can be more painful than their absence.  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.

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.  Life gives meaning to death; but it could also be said that death gives meaning to life, just as the silences in music give meaning to the line of sound.  Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin. 
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.
