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!

    What happen to this man is different than will happen for every one else, life is volatile it is not constant . so you have to adopt yourself for every situation and plans very good for your future .

    And I just realized some things I cried because of not being contented on what I have. Happiness is a choice indeed. Godbless!

    This reminds me of my grandfather who worked every day until the day he died. He was 86 but he still woke up at 5am everyday to go too work at Home Depot, come home at 9am and then go todo volunteer work at the hospital at 11am. He never ever stopped working, he never ever stopped or showed his age until the last 6 months of his life.

    I am only a baby compared to them but at 42 I have regrets I made bad choices along the way I just am trying not to live them the next day I wake up any more . I can say I'm sorry and have endlessly but I can not go back so who does it help to beat myself up over that that is done instead I use the memories to not do them again . Live and learn is what it comes down to .

    They both said "They've done everything they wanted already in the past" and I can feel what that line conveys. It feels warm thinking about it.

    One day I will become old and die!
    That's is the life.
    No matter how you enjoyed the life , but in the end you will die. Even breath you're taking isn't yours, your body is actually isn't yours.
    You only have time which will eventually pass.

    they all look so much younger than over 100!! and most of they seem to still have so much energy and great memory. it's impressive how some of them can still walk normally!! so sad to hear that some of their kids passed away before them tho, that must be so weird to see your kids grow old and pass before you. wow i can't believe they were my age in the 1930s...
    they all seem so lovely. does anyone know if they are still alive today?

  • You tube I tube We all tube! K

    None regrets whatever!! just Wow at that age, and so beautifull to have this.I regret so much allready, and im just 42 years old!

    Wonderful video@ LifeHunters. I was actually born in Birkenhead in 1963, (The north End) it's amazing to think that Cliff Crozier was already 48 years old when i first started my life, (Im now 56)is he still alive? I know he was in November 2018 because i just looked him up and he appeared in the The Birkenhead Park School Remembers website where has was featured, well done on the video, Thank you kindly>> Unpauses and watches the rest now (im only 41 seconds into the video and exited already lol :)
