There is Nothing You Can Not Do


Tao Porchon-Lynch made the Guinness World Record in 2012 as the world's oldest yoga teacher; she'll be 99 years old in August. I am sure you've seen a photo or video of her online. 

I came across her TEDx Talk and I just had to share. It is a delight to hear her speak and share her wisdom. In the video, she is 95 years old and is full of joy and life and brings that same enthusiasm to everything she does.

Two of her most inspirational phrases for me are, "Your age is in your mind," and "There is nothing you can not do." These are phrases we probably hear or are reminded of from time to time. Yet Tao has made them principles by which to live and is living proof that you can indeed do anything you want.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did, and feel inspired to live each day to the fullest.
