Connection!

I have told many people during the last ten years or so, that I read the book, Be Younger Next Year, and learned a lot from it and I’ve tried to put to good use the information that the author shared.  Most people just listen and don’t relate to my enthusiasm about the book, but today when my cleaning lady and I were talking about healthy habits, I told her about the book and she told me, “I read that book!”  Aha!  Connection!

She said that she was flying home and there was a delay in the flight and she had to wait a long while, and eventually she was seated in the first class section of a flight that went the long, long way around to get home.  The gentleman who sat next to her told her about the book, and he told her enough that she wanted to read it.  She found it in our local library and she really liked the book, too!

Finally, I found someone who shares my enthusiasm for the book.  The gist of the book is, “Never put trash in your mouth.”  Most of the rest of the book is about the junk foods that the author considers to be trash.

Am I younger today, than 10 years ago?  Not really, I admit.  However, I have few aches and pains, I get around quite well for my age, and I really enjoy my life.  I’m very glad that I read the book.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Jennifer, welcome! Now I know two people that are interested in the book. I hope you find ideas that are useful for you. It’s easy to give up potato chips once you realize that you feel better without them. Donuts, too! I quit eating them, then I broke over once and had a donut, and my stomach wasn’t happy. After that, it really was easy to say, “No thanks,” to donuts. I feel better without them.

  3. Oh I don’t eat potato chips or donuts. I’m trying to remember the last time I had a donut and I’m not coming up with anything so I’m sure it’s been years. I eat mostly fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and oatmeal. Also I love Ezekiel 4:19 sprouted grain bread, for toast, with real butter. Can’t live without it. I’m not a “trash” eater at all but I think there are lots of other good things to learn from the book! xoxo
