Hello All

I wish everyone a very happy & healthy Christmas & New Year.

What a different world we are living in now. Hopefully, everyone is well & things get better soon, so we can get back to a more normal life. I think it is a little easier for our generation, with our patience & experience to adapt temporarily to living in today’s world.

As I often say, we were so lucky to have spent our teenage years in the Fifties, in North York & at EARL HAIG It looks like we won’t be able to have our annual re-union luncheon again next spring. Unfortunately I think the best we can hope for is to get together sometime next fall. I’m sharing a list of rules for good aging, sent to me by a friend & very appropriate for us all. – enjoy.

21 Rules For Good Aging

A friend sent me this excellent list for aging. See if you agree (I do).

  1. It’s time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it.
  2. Stop worrying about the financial situation of your children and grandchildren.
  3. Keep a healthy life, without great physical effort. Do moderate exercise (like walking every day), eat well and get your sleep, be aware of your medical and physical needs. Keep in touch with your doctor, do tests even when you’re feeling well. Stay informed.
  4. Always buy the best, most beautiful items for you and/or your significant other.
  5. Don’t stress over the little things.
  6. Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love life, love your family, love your neighbour.
  7. Be proud, both inside and out.. When you are well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel proud and strong.
  8. Don’t lose sight of fashion trends for your age, but keep your own sense of style. You’ve developed your own sense of what looks good on you – keep it and be proud of it. It’s part of who you are.
  9. ALWAYS stay up-to-date. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what people are saying. Keeping in touch with what is going on and with the people you know is important at any age.
  10. Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideals as you. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them that yesterday’s wisdom still applies today.
  11. Never use the phrase: “In my time”. Your time is now.
  12. Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people.
  13. Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren
  14. Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have any, make new ones. Find something you like and spend some real time having fun with it.
  15. Even if you don’t feel like it, try to accept invitations. Baptisms, graduations, birthdays, weddings. Try to go - BUT ONLY IF IT IS COVID SAFE! The important thing is to leave the house from time to time.
  16. Be a conversationalist. Talk less and listen more. Always find some good things to say.
  17. Pain and discomfort go hand in hand with getting older. If they become your entire focus, you lose sight of the person you used to be.
  18. If you’ve been offended by someone – forgive them. If you’ve offended someone - apologize. Someone once said: “Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” Forgive, forget and move on with your life.
  19. If you have a strong belief, savor it. But don’t waste your time trying to convince others. Live true to your beliefs.
  20. Laugh. Laugh A LOT. Laugh at everything.
  21. Take no notice of what others say about you and even less notice of what they might be thinking. They’ll do it anyway. Be as happy as you can be!

AND REMEMBER:

“Life is too short to drink bad wine.” This I understand very well and I will Drink good wine and good scotch. C.D.
