We had another local resident hit the 100-year mark recently. The article said that he was once mistaken for Capone’s brother. He attributes his longevity to eating freshly caught lake fish, blue gills, crappie, and bass. They’ve always had a vegetable garden.
The man says he’s never had a cavity. Can you believe that?
He also had life balance. He worked hard at his own business. He had the lake property for weekends – but they moved there full-time after retirement. He gardened. He fished. He instilled the love of family and lake life in his kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.
Isn’t that what life should be about?
Not mansions, or BMWs, or all the trappings that just keep you enslaved. Do you really need all that garbage to be happy? John Vespa doesn’t. I don’t. How about you?
I mean really, look what the love of money and things has done to our world. Is it really necessary? Does that really make you happy?
Oh, I know, all the success people tell you to want more. Of course, then you have to buy their products to find out how to get more then, don’t you? Everyone is so caught up in all this wanting that no one has time to live life today.
And speaking of living life, I have a big idea.
Maybe it’s more like a wish. I’ll tell you about it tomorrow.
In the meantime, really think about what it is you desire – and how it’s affecting your life.
Anyone have a story to tell?
See you tomorrow!
P.S. I’ll bet you thought I was going to tell you to eat healthy, didn’t you?
Of course you have to eat healthy if you want to live past 100. Don’t be a silly goose.
