Transcript

  • 1. A man of 92 years, short, very well-presented, who takes great care in hisappearance, is moving into an old people’shome today. His wife of 70 has recently died, and he is obliged to leave his home.After waiting several hours in the retirementhome lobby, he gently smiles as he is toldthat his room is ready.
  • 2. As he slowly walks to the elevator, using hiscane, I describe his small room to him,including the sheet hung at the window whichserves as a curtain.- "I like it very much", he says, with theenthusiasm of an 8 year old boy who has justbeen given a new puppy.- "Sir, you haven’t even seen the room yet,hang on a moment, we are almost there. "
  • 3. " That has nothing to do with it ", hereplies." Happiness is something I choose inadvance. Whether or not I like the roomdoes not depend on the furniture, or thedecor – rather it depends on how I decideto see it. "" It is already decided in my mind that I likemy room. It is a decision I take everymorning when I wake up. "
  • 4. " I can choose. I can spend my day in bedenumerating all the difficulties that I havewith the parts of my body that no longerwork very well, or I can get up and givethanks to heaven for those parts that are stillin working order. "
  • 5. " Every day is a gift, and as long as I canopen my eyes, I will focus on the new day,and all the happy memories that I have builtup during my life. "" Old age is like a bank account. Youwithdraw in later life what you havedeposited along the way. "
  • 6. So, my advice to you is to deposit all thehappiness you can in your bank account ofmemories.Thank you for your part in filling myaccount with happy memories, which I amstill continuing to fill…
  • 7. Remember these simple guidelines for happiness. 1. Free your heart from hate. 2. Free your mind from worry. 3. Live simple. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less.
