Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a year among the oldest old

Talk & Discussion with John Leland

What’s the secret to living a fuller, more content life? For John Leland, the answer came from an unexpected place: from the lives of six people age 85 and up. He expected them to educate him in the hardships of old age. Instead, they taught him lessons of resilience, gratitude, purpose and perspective that apply to us all. All had lost something – spouses, mobility, eyesight or hearing. But none had lost everything. They defined their lives by the things they could still do, not by what they had lost. The good news is that we can all learn from the wisdom and experience of older adults.
