How to prepare for your old age
Author: Anonymous Writer
Nature is not kind to men who did not cater for their old ages when they were young
Build your own house where you will live in your old age.
Build businesses that will feed you in your old age .
Create conveniences that will engage you in your old age .
Build friendship and goodwill that will serve you in your old age.
Right now, start to be relevant in your mosque or Church and community so you could be reckoned with in your old age.
Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.
May you not become a liability on your children in your old age .
May your children not wish you an early death when they can’t manage you again in your old age.
An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence!
Be warned now…!

Categories of people you cannot do without
There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older , your family, people in your place of worship and childhood friends , who include your Old School mates .
Friends , take it or leave it, at 60 and above, loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their ways to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies, just as we did now. At that time it’s these people in these 3- categories that take away loneliness and keep your company.
Pls, out of your busy schedule, set time out to say HI ! to your real – old- age- cure – against- loneliness. In the 3- categories , the only one that knows you better and can relate with you down to heart are your childhood friends.
So why are you feeling too big or inferior to come along? It’s not possible we’ll all be at the same level. Some will be very rich, moderate and some poor – that is the beauty and misery of life. Some will be so educated, while some will still be Secondary school certificate holders.
If you are up, bring others that are willing up, and if you are down, never bring those that are up down with your mouth or attitude.
At close to 50 years and above, you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.
Stop saying I am this, I am that . Flow into other people’s lives and let them flow into yours.
Respect friendship and value relationship .
Let us pass this to all friends on our contacts , Rich or Poor
You can’t exhibit pride. Live simple
