Our favorite Golden Girl turns 96 years young tomorrow, January 17th.
Even at 95, going on 96, she still doesn’t want to stop working, claiming she loves it and “won’t stop until they tell me to!” according to Parade.
So what’s her secret to a long, happy life? She told Parade:
“Enjoy life. Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
“I know it sounds corny, but I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside. I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time.”
A video with Katie Couric was published at this time last year in celebration of the 95th birthday, and I couldn’t quit smiling throughout the entire video. Don’t you just want to hug her?!?!
“I am the luckiest broad on two feet!”
