Advice to my 100 year old self

This was a very difficult job because what I remember is coloured by the prejudices of long years but it is written without hindsight. We can all be wiser with hindsight. I mentioned my aim to write this article last night in company. I was challenged to offer advice to my 100 year old self.

In no particular order these words are words of advice to myself at one hundred

Don’t stop

Walk

Stand

Welcome change

If you have made it this far it speaks wonders for modern science and the ability of prescription drugs to aid longevity

Have more things to do than you have days to finish them.

Complain not – except by silent sufferance

Recognise I have only reached this age with the love given to me by loved ones.

Remain curious and investigate things you don’t understand

Develop a positive attitude

Don’t be bullied into anything

Understand stubbornness is recessive energy

Eat drink and be merry because almost everyone you knew is now dead

Dying is natural so give it a go without fear.
