Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and I thought of sharing an inspirational post with you. May this inspire you for this new year! I can’t take credit for this as I didn’t write it but I have no idea who the author is.


“Today’s inspiration! How to stay young!


  1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

  3. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

  5. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s!

  7. Enjoy the simple things.

  9. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!

  11. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

  13. Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

  15. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

  17. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

  19. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.”


Happy Chinese New Year to all of you celebrating!!! May it be a very prosperous year filled with much health, love, joy, happiness, success and everything your heart desires! #YearOfTheRooster #FireRoosterYear


Much love,
