Advice from American Seniors

There's a great article in today's New Your Times - Jane E. Brody's column titled "Advice From Life’s Graying Edge on Finishing With No Regrets". it's about “30 Lessons for Living” (Hudson Street Press), a book of sage advice from over 1,000 American senior citizens. Karl Pillemer, the author spent five years interviewing seniors on a diverse cross-section of topics about their lives, including love, work and faith. I think the consensus of opinion is the elders saw life as too short to waste on pessimism, boredom and disillusionment; and that happiness is a choice and that a practice of gratitude is intrinsic to being happy. Here's a link to the article: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/10/health/elderly-experts-share-life-advice-in-cornell-project.html
