Getting old is a privilege denied by many. It’s an art, a gift. Having gray hairs, ripping the pages off the calendar, and celebrating birthdays with grandchildren should always be a reason for happiness. Happiness for life and everything around you.
Life is strange. It goes by in a blink of an eye. No matter what you’ve been through, good or bad, when you look back everything went by so swift! It’s terrifying and amazing at the same time.
The other day I was riding in a cab with an older guy than me (65 years old cool dude). He told me that his father (now 85 years) told him that it felt like yesterday when he was in high school. It just made me think, and for a moment it made me sad to be honest. If an 85 year old dude says 70 years ago “felt like yesterday” then times does go in a blink of an eye.
Nurse Dancing With An Elderly Patient
Nurses are awesome. Nurses who work at nursing homes and go to such lengths to extend themselves are really remarkable people.
This nurse decided that he should appreciate that privilege and make the elderly feel special for a brief moment.
If kindness and things are taught more we would make this world an incredible place.
Everything isn’t always about hate. It’s just how you show it. Let’s see more of this and less hate! Let’s make this world a better place for everyone.
This is how we should be treating older people. With love, dignity and respect. Love this!
