Growing Older

An 80-year-old woman was unable to find a cab to take her home. She walked into a pizza parlor and said, “I’d like to order a pepperoni pizza delivered…and I’d like to go with it.”

People say about the aging process that it critical to retain our humor as we grow older. The reason is that, as we grow, our character traits become more ingrained. In fact, they become even more pronounced. A sweet person becomes sweeter. A disagreeable person becomes a real crank in old age.

Therefore, the attitudes and traits we are planting now will take root and become rigid habits later in life. So it’s important to make a commitment to live a daily life of good cheer, optimism, and gratitude. Whatever choices that are made today may serve us well later in life.

Plant happy seeds and enjoy today—and many, many tomorrows.
