Being Happy is Beyond Aging

Life is becoming better every day - if we take the responsibility for our very own happiness.

The pure joy of being alive is Greta Silver’s contagious credo. At 70 she feels she’s in the prime of her life. Moreover, she wouldn’t want to be a day younger: life’s constantly becoming lighter, more exciting and creative.
'This age makes me so happy. It’s so colourful. I’d never have dreamt it would be like this when I was younger. Every morning I wake up with the joy of the new day flowing through me. What wonderful things will this day bring? I’m glad that the hustle-bustle from earlier is over and I only do what I enjoy doing. I don’t have to do things – I want to do them. That’s the difference. There’s no more rushing through my day. I can do what I want. And I want so much – what’s more I don’t have to steal time to get it; my time is all my own.'
At 66, Greta Silver launched her YouTube channel 'Too Young for Old Age'. With hundreds of thousands of hits, she’s long become the doyenne for people wishing to discover the joy of living – playfully and full of verve. The more than 350 clips spark waves of enthusiasm and open up whole new perspectives.
