The past two weeks I have had the opportunity to work with a wise and extraordinary man at the hospital who happens to be 100 years old! I would have never guessed it until he told me and when he told me I could have sworn he was kidding. We have had great conversation, BINGO games, created abstract art and reminisced on past experiences together. Today is his last day in the rehabilitation unit and I decided to ask him what he believes his trick was to his health and happiness at the age of 100 years. Aside from pringles and wine, he answered by telling me that he truly believes that it is because he has always been extremely easy going and kept a positive attitude throughout his life. He expressed to me that he was never one to stress over much and usually just went with the flow of life. He expressed that stress is only going to make us unhealthy, weary and unhappy. I am a firm believer in the power of positivity but by working with this man I have witnessed it with my own eyes. Safe to say, I’m inspired.
