Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The simple things in life - like daisies. A very old friend of mine posted this on her FB page today and I thought it so worth reading I have borrowed it as is. The original post is by Anthony Harris.

"I asked one of my friends who has crossed 60 & is heading to 70 what sort of change he is feeling in him?
He sent me the following very interesting lines, which I would like to share with you ....
1) After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children, my friends, now I have started loving myself.
2) I just realised that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.
3) I now stopped bargaining with vegetables & fruits vendors. A few Rands more is not going to burn a hole in my pocket but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.
4) I pay the petrol attendant a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to his face. He is toiling much harder for a living than me
5) I stopped telling the elderly that they've already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down the memory lane & relive the past.
6) I have learnt not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.
7) I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me.
8) I have learnt not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.
9) I walk away from people who don't value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.
10) I remain cool when someone plays dirty politics to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.
11) I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.
12) I have learned that its better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof whereas with relationships I will never be alone.
13) I have learnt to live each day as if it's the last. After all, it might be the last.
14) I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself.
I decided to send this to all my friends. Why do we have to wait to be 60 or 70, why can't we practice this at any stage and age....✨"

Enjoy the simple things in life dear friends.
