Turning 80 what have you learnt?
My tennis partner turned 80 this week. Yes you heard correctly, my tennis partner is 80. She is double my age and is an amazing woman. She drives a red sports car, dresses in Karen Millen, has a personal trainer, plays tennis and badminton and get this, she is a concert pianist. She is the brains of our tennis partnership whilst I am the brawn.
I asked her what have you learnt turning 80 that you can pass onto me and my peers considering we have another 40 years to go. This is what she shared with me. She has learnt to do everything very fast. These were her words of wisdom. She told me she has never slowed down, she refused to let her age be a factor in her life and decided to do everything as fast as she had done previously.
How, perhaps, could we adopt this in our lives? Live life to the full we often hear, my tennis partner has taken this to the limit. Could you adopt a faster approach to life?
Wonderful outlook on life and if, perhaps, I could take on that approach to life, I may well get to 80 and still be playing tennis!
