It turns out that when you are about to turn 96, you don’t mind spilling the secrets to how you got there!  Betty White is about to  turn 96 (January 17th) and she gave a tell as to what has helped her live so long!

Parade Magazine quote Betty as saying, long life starts with,  “Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.

“I try to see the funny side and the upside, not the downside. I get bored with people who complain about this or that. It’s such a waste of time.”

As for eating habits, Betty’s diet isn’t restricted to kale and health foods. She eats things that she loves, specifically VODKA and HOT DOGS . as she says, “probably in that order!”

Finally, Betty has some advice for aspiring entertainers. She says, quote, “Learn your lines and come in prepared.  Don’t think you can wing it, because you can’t.

“We’re in show business, which is fun, but take your business seriously, because it is a serious business.”

Who doesn’t love Betty White?  Happy birthday to a living legend!
