Thinking about the new year 2013: Opportunities Increase in the TOP Quartile of Life

If your Creator gives you His highest honor of rising into the TOP Quartile of Life (between 75 and 100 years of age) and of retaining reasonable health,

…you are blessed with opportunities like never before:

  • The opportunity to stop thinking and worrying about things you cannot control.
  • The opportunity to think and comment positively and optimistically on any subject that others speak negatively about.
  • The opportunity to stop counting…minutes, hours, days, years, calories, money, exercise motions, pool laps, etc.
  • The opportunity to forget the unpleasant and remember what brings you joy.
  • The opportunity to sit quietly and watch a flower bloom.
  •  The opportunity to enjoy the company of your closest loved ones and friends.
  • The opportunity to caress your favorite pet and enjoy its love.
  • The opportunity to rock in your rocking chair or recline in your recliner.
  • The opportunity to listen to your favorite music.
  • The opportunity to read you favorite literature.
  • The opportunity to enjoy nature.
  • The opportunity to be free from those temptations that ensnared you in the three lower profiles.
  • The opportunity to think, unpressured by distractions.
  • The opportunity to be a blessing to others, whether through service or inspiration.
  • The opportunity to contemplate life and communicate with your Creator.

…And all of the above without feeling you are constrained by lack of time or by what others may think or say.

As in the first three Quartiles of Life, your life is what you make it.  But in the TOP Quartile of Life you are free to redefine yourself and your heritage by being a positive influence for your own happiness and that of others or by being a negative source of criticism and complaint.  If you truly deserve this highest honor you will choose to be positive and optimistic as you look down from the summit of your life’s long journey. The beginning of a new year is a good time to resolve to be optimistic and positive in all you do and say.
