This weekend, my friends and I went to the theatre to see How to Live Forever, an uplifting documentary that explores aging and searches for the secret to living a long life.
The director of the movie, Mark Wexler, interviews folks in their 70s, 80s, 90s, and 100s and asks them what they've done all these years to live a long life. I definitely found myself laughing and crying throughout and left the theatre with a greater appreciation of life.
The message of the movie was open to interpretation, but what I got out of it was that living a long, happy, and healthy life is more than just about staying active and eating a healthy diet (which is the theme of the majority of the documentaries I watch). It's about SO much more than that.
Living a long, happy, and healthy life is about attitude. It's about being positive, not sweating the small stuff, surrounding yourself with people who bring you joy and fill you with love, expressing gratitude, smiling & laughing often, slowing down and enjoying life. That was my interpretation anyways.
Another MUST-SEE! It's currently playing in theatres across the country.
