Did you know that you are entitled to benefits?  Like 10% off at most restaurants, discounts on products at stores and more, there are additional savings at many department store, hardware stores and other outlets.

I will add a list of businesses that provide discounts to seniors some around 10% others even higher!

One of the best benefits for seniors is being a member of a local senior community center!  When you join a center there are activities that many do not know even exist, there are travel programs, daily nutrition, lunch $5.00 if your under 60 and $2.00 over 60 at the center I work at, there are arts and crafts, exercise programs, bingo and a lot of other great programs!

In addition to the above the centers usually have a variety of useful activities that make life more enjoyable for seniors who sit home and watch television all day because they have nothing better to do, so if you have any relatives or family members who need something to do get them to the local senior community center in your city and watch them get active, that is something seniors need a lot of!

There are senior centers in most cities, the best way to find out is through the Internet, or call you city hall and ask if they know of one in your city, most cities operate the senior centers in their city while some are 501c 3 charity centers that operate independently of the city to a degree!

Hi Jim,

I would like to share with you the lessons by a 90 year old man:) Feel free to spread this around with your friends and family.

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for things that matter.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful.  Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It’s never too late to be happy.  But it’s all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’
27. Always choose Life.
28. Forgive but don’t forget.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d
grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.
42. The best is yet to come…
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

the above was written by a 90 year old lady, some seniors are still with it!!!
