Approaching life and work with sheer joy

At age 90, Elena Griffing approaches her life and her job with sheer positivity that’s evident in her contagious smile. She has worked for 70 years at Sutter Health in Berkeley, helping patients and walking the hospital halls in her signature high-heel shoes. She says, “Sure I could retire and work in my yard, but what am I doing for anybody?” Exercise, work, and Frank Sinatra give her limitless joy — and watching her positive attitude gives us limitless inspiration.

So how can you be more like Elena Griffing today? Tomorrow? The rest of your life. I believe that if you can figure that out, you’ll be living an Awesome life.
