         What is the secret to long life?  Scientists have been studying centurions to discover the secret of long life, but have yet come up with a definative answer.  A diet low in fat and calories and high in anti-oxidants has been touted as the secret diet of hundreds of centurions, but is that the secret of long life?  Live, laugh, love; we have all heard this simple adage and I believe this to be the “secret”.  After reading several interviews with centurions most include their personal secret to living a long life to be loving and laughing with friends, family, & their community.  This isn’t something you can do by simply snapping your fingers but rather a daily practice of learning how to de-stress and enjoy your life.  Learn to forgive.  Learn to love those who make life difficult.  And most importantly, learn to love yourself!
