Advice from Elders on Aging Gracefully

Aging_Gracefully_-_Ankota_Home_Care_Blog.jpgThankfully, I get fewer and fewer chain letters, inspirational writings, and bad jokes via email.  It seems that this practice has faded away (either that or people just realize that I'm not interested), but there are new ways to share that type of content, such as posting on Facebook.  If you've been on Facebook lately, then I'm sure you've noticed that viral videos, memes, and pictures of adorable or ridiculous cats are the new normal.


With all that in mind, I found this video from the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC)'s show Wiretap that I'm sure you will all enjoy.  It was described by one account that I saw as getting advice from your future self...

As someone who works with the elderly, I found this entertaining and heartwarming.  Spoiler Alert - If you haven't watched the video yet, you might want to skip this next bit.

The video features successively older people giving advice to those younger than them.  One of the first is from an 8 year old who says to the previous speaker, "Dear 7 year old, No matter what anyone says, Stay Weird," and it goes on from there.  I especially love the last guy to speak, at age 93, who says "Dear 91 year old, Don't listen to other people's advice. Nobody knows what the hell they're doing." Classic!
