I came across this article on The Insider and it made me smile, so I thought I’d share it here.
This wonderful lady was on the Humans of New York’s Facebook page recently and gave a little quote on how she views her life. Okay, so it’s not advice per se, but it’s an eye-opener because it’s quite refreshing and may bring a smile to your face.
She said :
“I’m ninety but I feel like I’m fifty. I don’t take any medicine. I never complain. I’m just happy to be alive. I tell people: ‘Start with what you have, not with what you want.’
Every day I dance for two hours. And I’m still really interesting too. I love politics and literature. I love the sciences. And I’ve got a boyfriend named Alexander. We exchange books. I don’t even know how old he is.”
If I made it to 90, while I’ll no doubt still be on medication, I’d love to be able to say I’m happy, interesting and have a boyfriend of an unspecified age! What would you like to be able to say at that age?
