Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

  • Published on Dec 23, 2016
  • We asked three centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets.
    The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video!

    I’m in my 20s and this woke me up cause I spend to long worrying about the future and feel I’ve made too many mistakes in the past. Whatever happens in life there is always hope and no matter how long you have to wait things will work out eventually

    Make yourself necessary and you will always be needed. If you want to feel successful, learn to create, innovate or design something other people can use and need.

    I wonder if any of these people are still alive now. Living in the UK must be nice when you know you won't be homeless or starve to death or die unnecessarily.

    I once worked in a nursing home where one of the residents lived until she was 106. In fact she died a few days before her 107th. I’ll never forget congratulating her on her birthday and she would sigh and say
    “Thank you, Ive had a congratulatory card from the Queen...but she is always wearing the same outfit in the picture! I’ve lived past 100 years old and the least the Queen can do is wear a different outfit!”

    I'M 28 .. I'm going through a lot with myself and my family (siblings) I am able to handle myself and work through my fears in life and grow and evolve but my siblings are sooo soo TOXIC and I LOVE THEM SOO SOO MUCH. I think I may be at a point where I have to cut them out of my life and having to make that decision is something I don't want to regret.

    Side Note : My great grandparents from my mothers side lived until 117 & 105 ... I wonder how many people in the world live more than 100 that are unaccounted for..

    It's amazing hearing this coming from the people who have lived the longest. With age can come wisdom, and they've learned what to value and why, and I feel as though that being passed on to the youth is a great way to help us know how to live.

    more like lessons from a 30 year old from the 60´s. these people stop learning Shit from a certain age they think theyve it all figured out, at about 30/45 this stops for most people. so this is fucking trash


    Don't spend all your life on your phone... get out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. And having sex with someone you love is way better than a one night stand or watching someone else doing it online.
