I Want To Be Like This When I'm 94!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Found this video that we all need to see. This is why I'm getting myself into shape...then I'll have to take dance lessons!


If I can do only half of what Matilda can do when I'm 94, I'll be happy!

This goes to show us we can do what we put our minds to...so don't ever stop trying!

    Isn't Mathilda amazing! I have seen this before and I only hope I can wear the shoes she has on! I have 24 years to catch up to Matilda and like you I would need the dance lessons. emoticon

    I think that if I were to reach 94, I'd be glad to do the first part where she walked with the walker! emoticon She's an amazing lady. I couldn't even keep up with her now...I'd be too out of breath!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, I hope I am still around at 94 and able to walk, let alone dance.
    I can do that now, but she's got 23 years on me. My Mom is late 80's and still ballroom dances. My Grandmother on mom's side made it to 101 and in good health. We have longevity in our family so hope it hasn't skipped a generation.
    But I only want long life if I am able to move, think and be productive.
    For anyone wanting to learn to dance it's never too late. Take some lessons.
    When i lived in Florida there was a senior dance group, ages 65 to 95 and they were fantastic. They performed for money. They used to say it kept them young , all the dancing. I totally agree.
    Thanks for the chance to see this.
