Mildred Kirschenbaum is about to turn 100 years old and lives alone, still drives, pays her bills online, texts loved ones on her iPhone and never misses happy hour, is doling out advice for living a long and active life in a series of positive yet feisty videos on TikTok and Instagram.
In August, she will be 100 years old and has friends that are 20 years younger, 15 years younger and she says their attitudes do nor bode well for a long life.
She says attitude is everything and explains that some people she knows complain about the food they are served or that their children don’t call them enough, but said they have to turn around their negative way of thinking.
Mildred says her advice is practical and she does not necessarily think her wisdom comes with age.
