Senior Moments That Will Make You Feel Younger And Happier!

Senior Moments That Will Make You Feel Younger And Happier!
We all keep sharing jokes and that makes our day and life lighter. Here are some great moments shared , as I would rather call them good Senior Moments that should bring cheer to some of our elders while also giving the younger generation a message that they should stay young at heart, and also treat their seniors with the same respect and love, to make their lives happier and more worth looking up to! Spend some time with them, crack some healthy jokes, show them you care, and need them as they need you, believe me you will be blessed! 

A few good Senior Moments


Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'
Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'
'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly.'
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love?
You know.... The one that's red and has thorns.'
'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator.
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.'

Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.
'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.
'No, I can remember it.'
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?'
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.. She stares at the plate for a moment.
'Where's my toast ?'

A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy:
'So I hear you're getting married?'
'Do I know her?'
'This woman, is she good looking?'
'Not really.'
'Is she a good cook?'
'Naw, she can't cook too well.'
'Does she have lots of money?'
'Nope! Poor as a church mouse.'
'Well, then, is she good in bed?'
'I don't know.'
'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?'
'Because she can still drive!'

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical check-up.
A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'
Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''
The doctor said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'

One more. . .!
A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'
'No,' he replied, 'Arthritis.'
 Ft uhh

Now , before you 'forget', send them on to some other folks you know who could use a good laugh !

When Small Acts of Kindness And Compassion Touch Your Heart!

When Small Acts of Kindness And Compassion Touch Your Heart!
(A True Life Incident Shared with You All)
Have you ever been touched by a small act of kindness, compassion or just simple reaction of your own personal character traits that may have occurred in your day to day life? I just had that experience today and it touched me so much, I thought of creating this little post. 

For some this may feel, a bit silly or childish or even won't be surprised with someone commenting as "Has this Guy gone nuts"?. Read on and you will understand why this small incident touched my heart so much. 

After a long stretch of work on my PC as usual, it got up to make myself a much deserved cup of hot tea. I need a lot of cups of tea a day and as usual I picked up the pot with the lid which I use for making tea, which already had some tea in it, lighted the gas, and put it on the burner. I took off the lid, and suddenly noticed a big black Ant on the top of the lid. Normally you will find these Ants immediately getting to your teapot or anything sweet, in search of sugary deposits, especially in this season. 

I am very sensitive to all insects and animals and without a thought I picked up the hot lid and hit it on the kitchen platform with a light bang to drop off the ant, which by then seemed to have got the sting of the heat. Unconsciously I shouted "Sorry, Sorry" an act that even made me shocked and in wonder, but it came out from my heart, as I felt disturbed I may have hurt the poor ant, I turned off the gas, and watched the Ant almost in tears. 
The Ant lay for a moment stunned, so I splashed a few drops of water on it , hoping to cool it off in case it had burnt itself even in that small touch of the hot pot. For a moment it stay still soaking in the water, then toppled over....
For a Moment, my heart was in my throat, choking. I sprinkled another light few drops of water on it literally uttering myself - "Get Up, Come-On, You can make it, I know you can make it, you are stronger than us Humans, I've seen it and experienced it so many times, You are an inspiration" ....I was mentally and verbally uttering to myself all the thoughts and actual experiences I have had about these amazing ants, already having written another post about them earlier.........Seconds were ticking by and I could see its feet moving which gave me a lease of hope and life, knowing it would come back....
And then to my utter happiness and relief, the ant gave itself a great heave and toppled over back on its feet, first, frisking off droplets of water on itself, then almost giving itself a "I'm Back Shuffle" and stood up on its hind feet as if to say, "Hey, Thank You, I'm Fine Pal". As if to acknowledge its movement I advanced my finger towards it, carefully so to say giving it a nudge or you could say a Hi Five and for a moment it kept its tiny two front feet against my finger as if accepting the Hi Five and then scampered off to where it was coming from. 

I have never felt so emotionally overwhelmed, and in tears than that incident which taught me so much. Above all it reiterated my faith that love and compassion is universal, you only have to feel it and it will reach any corner of the world. I will never forget this incident in my life, and that is the very reason I decided to pen this down and share it with you all. 

Remember to spread Love, Care, Compassion, Forgiveness, and Sharing all around you. The World Needs it! God Bless!

I start this Blog Post by quoting Earl Nightingale "Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored."

Yes how well said and easier said than done. But when we come down to actually making use of our time and the available resources we are faced with one of the biggest challenges of mankind. Intimidating and challenging as it may look we often underestimate "TIME". This most powerful entity of the Universe is insurmountable and unconquerable. We have to humbly accept that the whole Universe is at its mercy and we are but a speck in the Universe.

No amount of wealth of the wealthiest of the wealthy people in this world, be they listed on the Forbes Richest Billionaires list or the any other list that tags them as one of the Richest can buy but one "Nano-Second" of this entity called "TIME". Nor one of the strongest men listed in the worlds strongest men list or the strongest cranes in the world or any engineering marvel be able to hold back one second of this entity of Life which has the whole Universe and life in its grip. It may be intimidating to accept at first thought , but give it some time of your thinking and it will make you a much more humble person. 

There may be many scientific theories about Space - Time - Universe and how they are interlinked with one another but what we are going to look at in this post is only the importance of Time in our lives and how we can make best use of it. 

Since we have already seen and experienced that no amount of your money or health can buy back even a second of that precious time that is ticking away, this is how to make the best of your time. Some simple but precious tips:

1. Manage your time to the "T" so to say. Schedule your days work in a simple 24 hour slot, prioritizing your every second to get the best out of it. We all know there are only 24 hours in a day but if we can fit in your work in every minute or rather second of those 24 hours you will feel as if you have multiplied those 24 hours to 48. Easier said than done but if done judiciously and prudently you will feel proud of yourselves.

2. Stop procrastinating totally. Yes it may be seem difficult, but procrastination leads to loss of valuable unproductive time. Instead it is better to spend some of those valuable moments to plan out your work, prioritize it, and set a plan of action to work on daily which will make your next day even more easier to work at and save more time. Make it a habit every day to review your days work and try to re-schedule or revamp your work schedule to squeeze in every bit of spare time you can extract from the day to give it a more constructive outlook and meaning. All those obstructive thoughts about "Not Sure" , "In the Future", "Later", "Someday", "Maybe Another Day" will only prolong your agony and growth. Take action "NOW" so begin doing it now!

3. Simple time management tips can take you a long way. For example, knowing well that you have a busy day today, it is always advisable to get up a bit early so you are already controlling your time factor, finish each task with enthusiasm, and speed, eagerly looking forward to do the next thing, and concluding it on time. That gives you extra seconds head start for the day, and each head start adds to your available time leaving your much more relaxed and feeling fulfilled.

4. Proper work, time and facility management can keep you away from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder more popularly known as OCD. You might be repeating your actions owing to the anxiety and gain solace from those apprehensions by doing some rituals again and again then probably you are suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder more popularly known as OCD or OCD spectrum in medical terms.Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a potentially psychological disabling illness that traps people in endless cycles of repetitive thoughts and behaviours. The best way is to use your time to organize your habits, your space, your belongings, and your time in a way that you relax and make the best of life. 

5. All the above habits can slowly and steadily make you take every second of your time from the day and give it a purposeful use. There is so much we can do just by managing time, and in the above tips I have highlighted only a few. As we go forward and you get more motivated by the ways you have yourself generated , even better ideas will come forth. 

I can only conclude by expressing this wonderful line that sums it all up - "यह मत सोच के ज़िन्दगी में कितने पल है ये सोच के हर पल में कितनी जिंदगी है"
