A 72-year-old man, young, well-built and proud, fully clothed every morning at eight o’clock, with well-combed hair, although not visually impaired, has been transferred to a nursing home today.
His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After hours of waiting patiently at the reception area for the nursing home, she smiled broadly when she was told that her room was ready.
As she led her companion to the curtains, I provided a visual description of her small room, including the eyebrows that had been placed in her window. I love it, ‘said the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old boy who had just been given a new puppy.
Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; Wait. ‘
‘That has nothing to do with me,’ he replied.
Happiness is something you decide ahead of time.
Whether I like my room or not depends on how the furniture is arranged … it is the way I plan my mind. I have already decided to love it.
‘It is a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the whole day in bed talking about the problems I have with my limbs that are no longer working, or I can get out of bed and thank those who work.
Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes are open, I will focus on the new day and all the happy memories I have kept. At this point in my life.
Aging is like a bank account. You are about to delete a post.
So, my advice to you would be to add a lot of fun to the memory bank account!
Thank you for your contribution to completing my Memory Bank. I’m still investing.
Remember five simple rules for happiness:

- Release your mind from worry.
- Live a simple life.
- Give more.
- Expect less.
Have a great day, unless you have other plans.
