Every part of life is a valuable experience. So appreciate the here and now.
A video by the Jubilee Project features people of all ages answering the question, "If you could be any age, what age would you be?" The participants in the clip, entitled "Timeless: 50 People 1 Question," gave a range of answers, however, by the end, it's clear all of them can be summed up by one 67-year-old's response.
"Embrace everything that you can about your life as it is today," the woman says in the video.
In the short film, many of the children wish they were older, as they dream about sweet 16 and other milestones and privileges that come with age. However, other participants wish they could go back to the younger years and do it all over again.
But with every year comes a different set of perks, as the participants point out. And as the 67-year-old participant mentions, it's important to stop and savor the moment.
"I was in a hurry to get through life. Consequently, many of those years are a blur," she said." We don't want to go through life having regrets. ... My regrets were a result of not being in the moment."
