Patrice Koerper  Life Coach Wishful Thining hour glass100 bits of advice from centenarians – folks 100 or older, who have lived lots and well.

Here are my top three . . .

68. “I think [people] have to be curious. They have to be interested in life outside their little aches and pains. They have to be excited about seeing new things, meeting new people, watching a new play—just passionate about life.”

78. “I try to take the time to look at and appreciate the smaller things that make this life beautiful. When I do that, time slows.”

90. “Look inside your soul and find your tools. We all have tools and have to live with the help of them. I have two tools: my words and my images. I used my typewriter, computer, and my cameras to fight injustice. Whenever I see a possibility of helping people who are in danger, I want to help them.”

And, this one made me smile . . . 76. “Take naps every day.”
