Sixty plus? Time to let go of worries...

Someone sent this, titled "Sixty Plus and Going Strong"...

Don't worry about what will happen after you are gone, because when you return to dust, you will feel nothing about praises or criticisms.

Don't worry too much about your children for they will have their
own destiny and find their own way. So don't be your children's slave.

Don't expect too much from your children. Caring children, though caring, would be too busy with their jobs and commitments to render any help. Uncaring children may fight over your assets even when you are still alive.

60-plus-years-old like you, don't trade in your health for wealth any more; because your money may not be able to buy you your health.

Even with a thousand hectares of good farm land, you can only consume three quarts (of rice) daily; even with a thousand mansions, you only need eight square metres of space to rest in at night.

As long as you have enough food and enough money to spend, that is good enough.

So you should live happily. Every family has its own problems. Just do not compare with others for fame and social status and see whose children are doing better, etc.

Don't worry about things that you can't change because it doesn't help, and it may even spoil your health.

You have to create your own well-being and find your own happiness; think about happy things, do happy things daily and have fun in doing so, then you will pass your time happily each day.

One day passes, you will lose one day; but one day passes with happiness,
and you gain one day.

So, stay in a good mood, have suitable amount of exercise, welcome the sun, have a variety of food, reasonable amount of vitamins and mineral intake, and hopefully you will live another 20 or 30 years of healthy life.

Above all, learn to cherish the goodness around you, the family and friends who 
make you feel young and 'wanted'! Without them, you are sure to
feel 'lost'. Wishing you all the best.
