Default You MUST read this

One of the best true advice ANYONE can get.
Keep it and when you are down........Read again to remind yourself the value of life.

: The World's six best doctors ...worth reading twice.......

Steve Jobs Died a billionaire at age 56 This is his final essay:

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In some others' eyes, my life is the epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in have paled and become meaningless in the face of my death.

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone bear your sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found or replaced.
But there is one thing that can never be found when it's lost - Life.
Whichever stage in life you are in right now, with time, you will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well and cherish others.
As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $300 or a $30 watch both tell the same time.
You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down - you go down with it.

Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness!
Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy.
So when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price.
Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise you have to eat medicine as your food.

The One who loves you will never leave you for another because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on.
There is a big difference between a human being and being human.
Only a few really understand it.
You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!

The six best doctors in the world are sunlight, rest, exercise, diet, self-confidence and friends. Maintain them in all stages and enjoy a healthy life."

Harry

Sounds like he finally found God. It's too bad it takes a life ending illness for so many to understand how precious life is. Rich or poor God doesn't care he looks at your 💓.

It's amazing how some folks reach the point of being real philosophical when they are facing the end of their run in this life. Those among us who realize what is really important at an early age are truly blessed as they seem to enjoy things more that the rest of us. Those who have a belief that death is just a passing through one door into another life and have no fear of the ultimate are living life to the fullest. Most of us who work with wood and can look at the beauty in a piece of it and envision what it can be after we apply our skills to enhance it are ahead of the masses. The small things really do matter the most.

I had the insight when I was 22 that life is a long series of choice points, and that at every one of them you could choose actions that would take you toward what you want, or away. Although I've made occasional choices that I didn't like, I have consistently, persistently actually, re-chosen toget back to moving toward what satisfies me and gives me joy. So I have lived so far a life I love with few regrets.

A couple of years ago, I died on an airplane but was revived. So I don't have a fear of death anymore. I appreciate being here with the people (and critter) I love and care about. Participation in all aspects of life is really critical to having a great and satisfying life. That's why I'm on the Forum and an active contributor. All the people in this group are top notch, openly sharing what they know, and also always emphathetic toward others. You see it in the gifts for grandchildren, in supportive messages for those who are facing challenges, in the willingness to love and support the SWMBO's in our lives.

The holiday season is here, and it's our special gift that Forum participants get to express that all year long. I hope everyone here, including the folks who keep this place running, all have a rich and satisfying life, the best possible health and are happy.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Ever notice it's usually the rich people that say $$ isn't all good.

I'd like to find out for myself --- just for a little while.

Money isn't the root of all evil - it's the love of money that's bad.

I sent this to my wife at work and got some brownie points.

Thanx Harry

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

No kidding John , I probably hate that saying more than anyone in this world .
Happiness is just an emotion, being hungry and homeless and freezing to death is actually happening .
I could absolutely care less about being happy. Actually Iím not happy unless Iím depressed lol .
If rich people arenít happy , cry me a river . This stoned moron at work told me at least I have my health .
lol what health ? Corneal transplant is failing , prostate is always enflamed and I urinate up to 24 times a night or more sometimes .
I have tinnitus so bad in my right ear Iíd shoot myself in the head right now if I had a gun.
I have a calcium deposite covering a fracture on the bottom of my thibula , and itís like walking on a broken bone for the rest of my life .
Never smoked a day in my life and I have blockage in my lungs when I breath out , so the doctor is debating to put me on oxygen.
No matter what happens to me, it is perminant with ZERO chance of it getting better .

So ya , when I hear about rich people crying about not being happy, I could care less for such simpletons

Suddenly Rick most of the health problems that I moan about seem to have faded into insignificance.
