World's Oldest Man's Secrets to a Long Life

Posted By Dawn Kairns, Author of MAGGIE: the dog who changed my life

Walter Breuning, the world's oldest man, just died in Montana at 114. His philosophy was simple. Here's the world's oldest man's secret to a long life according to the Associated Press:

'• Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. ("Every change is good.")

• Eat two meals a day ("That's all you need.")

• Work as long as you can ("That money's going to come in handy.")

• Help others ("The more you do for others, the better shape you're in.")

Then there's the hardest part. It's a lesson Breuning said he learned from his grandfather: Accept death.

"We're going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you're born to die," he said.'

Wow. Seems pretty simple, doesn't it? So much wisdom lies in simplifying, finding ways to keep things simple in our complex world. Thank you, Mr.Breuning, for sharing the wisdom of your years ...
