KEEPING YOUR SANITY XXI

You can be young at heart in your 80s and old at heart in your 20s.  One of the greatest crimes the Left perpetrates upon humanity is to destroy the joy, optimism, and enthusiasm that comes naturally to the young people of America.

The Left fills them with hate, anger, despondency, hopelessness, embarrassment and guilt for their country — and personal existence if they are white.  The result is so many young Americans are old – scared, timid, cynical, apathetic, pessimistic, and joyless.  Anyone who inculcates this in America’s children, teenagers, and young adults are enemies of mankind and should be treated as such.

But how about you?  How much of your soul is filled with joie de vie, the joy of life, the ecstasy and thrill of being alive?  Making sure it is could hardly be a better way of keeping your sanity.

One way to inculcate it is to act young.  That is physically.  Of course, the older you get the less able to you are to do what you could years ago.  But you can step up the pace when you’re walking someplace or even around your home, you can move quickly, with alacrity. Also, you can make it a habit to never take an elevator just for one or two floors but use stairs instead.

Another way is always be on the lookout for something to appreciate — a flower, a cloud, the way the light reflects off something, someone’s smile, the sound of a child laughing.  That’s Iiving in appreciation – make it a habit of being that way.

Or make it a habit to look for something you never noticed before.  It’s amazing how you can live someplace and see something that somehow escaped your attention before.

There are all kinds of things you can do differently, breaking a routine.  And obviously, there’s an infinite number of things you can learn about, or new skills to acquire.  Never stop being curious.

Mainly, however, the key to all this is one of attitude.. That’s what Sinatra’s song is all about.  Make the lyrics a part of your life.  Live with enthusiasm!  It’s a lot easier to keep your sanity if you do.

Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
If you’re young at heart
For it’s hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind
If you’re young at heart

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on its way

Don’t you know that it’s worth every treasure on Earth
To be young at heart
For as rich as you are it’s much better by far
To be young at heart

And if you should survive to 105
Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive
Then here is the best part
You have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart

And if you should survive to 105
Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive
Then here is the best part
You have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart
