Each day, we choose to live the life we have. If you had 24 hours to live, how would you change your life? What would you choose to do differently compared to the last 10 to 20 years? Are you trully happy where you are? Having the mentality of cherishing the hear and now leads to a better quality of life for the long term instead of dreading all life.
An uncle of mine has always been negative even since he was a child. His health has been going down hill for many years. He is a diabetic and has had one of his legs apputated years and recently he had to have the other foot amputated. The effects of a negative mentality will play a large part on your over all health. My father has a better attitude and has been more active physically, plus keeping all of his limbs. With my father living in the same place as my uncle, he has saved my uncle many times. Thanks to my father, my uncle is still living after all of these years. It is your choice in how you perceive life.
