WATCH: 90 Year-Old Man Shares The Secret to Lasting Happiness

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/29/15

Proof that happiness isn’t about money, fame, or success

This touching video of a 90 year-old fruit farmer and photographer reminds us of what life is all about: family, faith, love, memories, beauty, bounty, and most of all, gratitude. Married to his childhood sweetheart who has since passed away, the man shares snippets of his life—what it’s meant to him and why he has been so rich. "God gave me more than I knew what to do with," he says. Which is probably true for many of us. Try watching this lovely video and not be moved to live from a deeper place of gratitude.
