I have found whenever I do something to just be a good person, I get back much more than I ever give. This is exactly what happened when I sent Joseph Tresser some information about vestibular disorders because he suffered with dizziness a few months ago — I know how scary that can be.
Little did I realize how much he would help ME get through a challenging, painful period in my own life. With wisdom and knowledge, encouragement, and a wonderful sense of the ridiculous, Joe helped see me through the long wait for and actual hip replacement surgery. His help has been invaluable.
Joe sent me this and gave me permission to share it with you.
MY GOAL IN LIFE — UPON TURNING 80
By Joseph Tresser
Having experienced ups and downs
Over many years
On a rapid train through many countries
From revolutions to hurricanes and shaky earthquakes,
I developed a simple formula enriching
‘My Goal in Life’ which states:
‘Live young, have fun, and arrive at your final destination
As late as possible
With a big smile on your face
Because this would mean
That you truly enjoyed the ride.’
You can’t go wrong, especially so
If you have made many good friends
Along the way.
