A new year!
Today is a New Beginning Day! It’s 2009 and we are lucky to be alive! Are you filled with New Year’s resolutions? Or are the resolutions like Christmas tree ornaments, something to be packed up for a year or something to be broken? Or are they as old fashioned as Betty Boop? The arrival of the New Year is a wonderful opportunity for self-improvement, renewal, or adventure for what the unknown will reveal to us one day at a time.
My Christmas was wonderful! I got to see most of my children! It was all so exciting and I have had “the vapors” for a few days ever since because of all the excitement and I’ll survive the “vapors” (which is exactly what that implies - nothing, probably exhaustion.) It’s my favorite time of year.
Another year means I’m a year older, that’s good considering the alternative! It means that I don’t have a set bedtime, or why thaw when you can eat out, or your secrets are safe with me because I can’t remember them, and my old clothes are back in style.
Old age means: decaffeinated cappuccino (yummy).
Binge, if I want it.
Bell-bottoms are gone for good.
Saving the bone to make soup.
Saving sacks, I might need them.
The collected works of Cary Grant.
Something to ponder -- Harry Truman was first elected to the Senate at age 50. Great bonuses come at the end of your life, such as knowing your grandchildren and when they have children, your great-grandchildren, enjoying new and old friends, exciting adventures, (even if it’s watching a great television show).
It’s amazing how times have changed. We used to eat dinner at home and go out to a movie. Now, we go out to dinner and come home for a movie or taking a trip to the uttermost parts of the earth or sometimes little trips around home. Marvel at the wonder that comes with each new day.
They say you are as old as you feel, so feel young, think young. Take care of yourself, eat right, sleep enough, and be absolutely sure that you take your selenium every day. It has been discovered that everybody who has cancer has no selenium in his system. Selenium is a cancer preventive and actually is a poison that destroys cancer cells. Selenium won’t cure cancer if you have it but take it before you have cancer so you won’t get it. Doctors are experts at medicine but seldom study diet. Try it; you’ll be glad you did.
On this note, have a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
