It’s been a while since I shared a news article so, today, that’s what I’m gonna do. And this is an inspiring one so, double win! =)

On June 12, this 85-year old grandfather, got his college degree. And why? Because after retiring, his wife told him that he should get out of the house and do something. It took him 10 years to graduate due to serious illnesses and surgeries for both him and his wife.

You can read the entire story on the CBS New York website and watch the news piece below, but I want to share the advice Joseph and his wife have for those that are retiring from work.

“Keep active, get out of the house for a couple of hours a day. It will do you a big favor and whoever is home with you, it will do wonders for them” Rosalind Pinsky. “It keeps your mind active, that’s important” added Joseph Pinsky.
