There’s a difference between getting old – and living a long time.
Luck has something to do with it, but if your life was like a game at a casino…
the things you are doing now buys you more chips to play.
Smoke – you lose some.
Don’t exercise – you lose some.
Eat unhealthy food you lose some more.
Stop learning and being interested…
You’ll end up in a place where you couldn’t do those things if you wanted to.
Have arguments and hold petty grudges and you’ll be left without people to share the game with.
Of course some of it is luck, but you do get to choose how you play your own game.
If you need an incentive,
find people who squandered their chips and talk to them.
They might say it’s worth it.
I imagine most won’t.
And if you are lucky enough to live your older years like the people in this picture,
think how glad they are that the other didn’t play Russian Roulette with their health.
