The world’s oldest man, Walter Breuning, died yesterday at 114 years old. While reading an article done on his life, they listed Walter’s secrets to a long life:
— Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. (“Every change is good.”)
— Eat two meals a day (“That’s all you need.”)
— Work as long as you can (“That money’s going to come in handy.”)
— Help others (“The more you do for others, the better shape you’re in.”)
He lived a long and wonderful life and gave the best advice. I always enjoyed listening to interviews with him. So why is this a lesson in procrastination? Walter Breuning lived in a retirement home about a mile down the road from us. For the ten months we have lived here, I have thought numerous times about wanting to go meet him. I never made it.
