Listen very carefully to what this wise old person says. First, take a deep breath. Take a deeper breath. Now, imagine that you are 95 years old and you are just about to die. Here comes your last breath. But before you take your last breath, you are being given a wonderful, beautiful gift: the ability to travel back in time and talk with the person who is reading this column. The 95-year-old you has been given the chance to help the you of today to have a great career and, much more important, to have a great life

such a nice advice .... i do it often .... hay have u seen the movie 'click' Adam sandler ..... it seems jumping to 95 in a single leap may take all your emotions away,all the love the suffering that changes your thoughts. May be at 95 you are not the same person that u think u r right now ! u never know keep on imagining :)

-nope, i havn't seen it, will check it out, thanx
-being 95 yrz old is an uncomfortable thought, but i guess as long as you have ppl around you who care for you any age would be pleasant
-i once read an article in which most aged ppl regretted the fact that they lived their lives too seriously in terms of building a career,and didn't give their family and friends enough time, and neglected the emotions of their loved ones.
-and i think you are right abt emotions fading away, unless they remain consistent
-razi, do i know u? :)
