92-year old Practicing Doctor shares her Secret to Longevity & Vitality | WATCH



92-year old Dr Melissa Freeman has been practicing medicine for over 60 years and she’s sharing her inspiring story about how she became a doctor and her secret to long life.

Freeman, an internal medicine specialist who has a private practice helping people addicted to opioids told Good Morning America that her grandfather was born a slave, but moved to New York in the late 1800s.

Her grandfather didn’t get an education but he made sure his children and grandchildren did. She was recently honoured by Howard Medical College, her alma mater.

Freeman still uses the subway to move around as she also works at a clinic.

On her secret to longevity and vitality, she said:

You do what you have to do. You have to move on. As long as God gives me life and strength, I’ll have to keep doing it. And he’s been very merciful to me.

    Really happy for her and hers. But I don’t think there is any secret to longevity. Some people live very healthy lives and still die quite young. Others live quite a reckless lives and nevertheless get to experiment the same grace. My personal belief/choice would be to go the healthy route _spiritually, emotionally and physically, but I know that it doesn’t necessarily mean that I will live longer than anyone else. As a matter of fact, I do it more because as for me it’s the only way I have found to enjoy my journey in this adventure called “life”. Longer or shorter, my ultimate goal is to live fully…Even Jesus only lived for 33 years and I am convinced it wasn’t a curse but a blessing and HE accomplished in those few years WAY MORE than any other human being dead, alive or still upcoming. May God bless us with the same grace to live our best lives no matter how long they get to be ??
