I did it!
Except for getting behind a couple of times and having to quadruple days once, I caught up and completed this series.
I’m now 31 days older now, and I don’t care.
I’ve learned that living too much in the past gets old and worrying too much about the future steals hope.
That to live in the now is how to live now.
Thanks for hanging with me and note that the entire series can be found here.
One thing I don’t think we touched on is the role of humor and the importance of laughter in healing and aging gracefully.
So I leave you with these few words.
“[Humor] keeps [the elderly] rolling along, singing a song.
When you laugh, it’s an involuntary explosion of the lungs.
The lungs need to replenish themselves with oxygen.
So you laugh, you breathe, the blood runs, and everything is circulating.
If you don’t laugh, you’ll die”.
~Mel Brooks as quoted in “Age doesn’t matter unless you’re a cheese.”
