The Essentials of Life

The main ingredient of a good life is to keep yourself busy doing the things that you enjoy, spend as little time as possible doing the thing you dislike and leave yourself some time just to relax and wind-down (even doing things enjoyable can tire you out). Try not to worry, don't procrastinate, be open and honest with all those you deal with - treat others as you would want them to treat you.

Forgive others if you can (though sometimes it can be difficult), Don't overindulge in food or drink. Smoke 'em if you have them - it might be a stress reducer but don't forget, it's a detriment to one's health. Gamble only your excess money not the money you need for food, shelter and clothing.

Get yourself a pet - they will accept you for who you are, forgive you when you blunder and will always be at your side.

Life (in years) can be long or it can be short - depends on the "Big Guy". Life (in one's own personal perspective) can be long if you are not happy and short if you are - comes down to whether or not you want a long unhappy life or a short happy one. It's your choice.
