  1. Good story. Here in the U.S. most older people have 2 choices: get warehoused in a “care” center or hope to at least die in your sleep with a little dignity left.Less than 10% of children will care for their very old,sick,and infirm parents. First poop incident usually results in a ride to the warehouse.
    My opinion on life in general is simple: I don’t really give a crap about what I did or do in my “glory days”. My only concern is tomorrow.
    Braggarts are braggarts: old guys singing their own praises about their past are the same jerkoffs who had all of the material crap of the time and then let
    everyone know all about it then.
    If anyone wakes up in the morning and their first thought is of days past guess what: you REALLY need to get a life.

  2. Amen Paul !!!
    I have a similar past. Never hit the homerun, never scored the touchdowns, basically I was just an average Joe worker bee type. Always did for others more than myself.
    Honesty & integrity is all I ever had and still have. Now is your time to enjoy life for yourself. I got it! I understand where your coming from.
    Thanks.

  3. SUPER GREAT VID PAUL, TO THINE SELF BE TRUE. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THE OLD LADY’S STORY. WORKED WARNER BROS FOR 16 YEARS SAW AND MET MANY STARS, THE ONLY ONE I WAS IN COMPLETE AWE OF WAS GEORGE HARRISON AT THE TIME I DIDN’T REALIZE HE WAS DYING OF CANCER.

  4. Really enjoyed that honest and enlightening insight Paul, thanks for sharing. I will keep watching ….you keep making every day count, stay happy and live with gratitude buddy…, cheers Andrew🍺

  5. Hey Paul great video. You are right its not about what you were living off past glories..what are you living now. Im still working overseas. missing my Filipina girl and my son and itching to visit after this virus disaster…maybe one day we can have a beer..intelligent meaningful conversations are one of the best things in life..take care of yourself cheers Kevin

  6. HEY PAUL>>>GREAT INSPIRATIONAL VIDEO! I THINK ANYBODY WHO has travelled & spent time in the PHILIPPINES has seen an OLD FILIPINA LADY just like the one you described…I know i have many times as i went BACKPACKING thru the villages & barangays, an OLD LADY WALKING MILES to the VILLAGE STORE with broken FLIP FLOPS in the HOT PHILIPPINE SUNSHINE & it also has made me THINK HOW GRATEFUL & BLESSED I AM FOR HAVING THE LIFE I HAVE…UNDERNEATH ALL HER WRINKLES & MISSING TEETH (SHE PROBABLY COULD NOT AFFORD TO VISIT A DENTIST IN HER LIFETIME) BUT SHE HAS FAITH & HOPE & LOVE & LOTS OF WISDOM & COURAGE…AND IF YOU STOP TO TALK TO HER , SHE WILL HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SMILE ON HER FACE & THAT FILIPINO HOSPITALITY …PEACE & GOD BLESS>>>HOOYAH!

  7. Wow. Thanks Paul. The insight you shared for this one is a beautiful thing. I hope you get to talk with the old woman in some way. Maybe translate through Mae. I’d love to hear her story.

  8. Can never move forward when looking in the rear view mirror. Best part of living is having some goals and working towards making them possible. When you get there, it’s time for the next goal………….

  9. Another random thought: “back in the day” I could deadlift 400 pounds,throw a 200 pound oxygen cylinder on my shoulder and move it anywhere,just a big ol’ stout man. Now with 2 knees with minimal cartilage left,hardware in my spine to fix a broken back,a right monocep from a torn and separated tendon I ignored too long, a bad rotator cuff on my right shoulder and a LONG list of major health issues my days are spent problem solving: how to survive heat and humidity that I can’t tolerate,how to rig and move things instead of just manhandling them, how to get anything done with a broken down and sick body. No time to reflect on the past: too dang busy living.

  10. Hi Paul, good video. As an old guy, 77, I can relate to most of what you went through. I just did a vid on my magical elixir, a blend of select teas that I learned from a Tea Master in Taiwan. I have been drinking this for over 20 years. I believe that is the reason that I have lived so long and have maintained my youthful vigor and beauty. 🙂
