Learn Something New Everyday….

Today, Suzanne and I were humbled to find ourselves included in the list of interesting achievers as well as illustrious octogenarians… in a post entitled ‘is it worth living till 90?’ by seniorsaloud.blogpost.com. Our answer is…. most definitely… YES!

My siblings all lived into their 90s. I being the youngest in the family, am a freshly-minted 89, while my eldest sister is still of very sound mind and fuelled by a feisty zest for life at 97. In our own ways, we certainly make the most of our daily lives. By the grace of God, we look forward to enjoying more of our Golden Years, filled with blessings from above.

Besides keeping physically fit, Suzanne and I believe that one of the ‘tricks’ to keeping youthful is also to discover and learn new things constantly.  We are always eager to jump onto a new bandwagon of learning, so to speak, as new knowledge and interests spark up our whole mindsets. This then takes on a domino effect of sending positive and wellness vibes into the rest of our miraculous systems. 

Hence the ‘bright- eyed and bushy tailed’ looks that light up our faces when we have come away with new snippets of know-how, on subjects that up until then, were completely out of our comprehension and grasp.

The people at this site clearly explain the benefits of absorbing a new fact or two each day. Yes it is as simple as that, in an effort to keep ourselves interested and interesting to others around us.

Last but not least, some people subscribe to the practice of writing a list of ‘things to be thankful for’ on a daily basis.  We do the same, but in the form of prayers,  to thank and appreciate the good Lord for all our blessings. Amen.

  1. Love this post! I write a blog about learning something new each day; that’s the whole blog. I just used that picture (learn something new each day) and wanted to make sure it was ok. I would actually love to make it my slogan picture, perhaps. I just wasn’t sure if that were ok. I, also, posted a link in the picture that will bring people here if they click it! 🙂 Let me know if there are any objections to my using it and I will pull it immediately! THANK YOU!!

    • Hello ‘Princess’,

      Thank you for dropping by our blog, and for sharing with us, your use of our image of Learn Something New Each Day as your slogan picture. It will be a pleasure to know that the image takes up pride of place in your page. We have one small request please. Is it possible to put an ‘image credit’ to our blog below the image….as the link in the picture is under ‘good reads’ only (thank you for that, by the way). Wishing you and your lovely family much happiness and blessings. God Bless.
