Motivation Monday: 91-Year-Old Working RN

I just feel very honored that they still let me work.
— See See Rigney


 🔅  The average American retires at 63 years old (Wallace, 27). 

 🔅   At 91 years old,  See See Rigney is still going strong in her field of expertise: nursing.

 🔅  Rigney originally retired at the age of 67.  After six months, she was itching to get back to work  and has been at the Tacoma General Hospital another 25 years.


Working gives us purpose, and passion gives us life.  Finding meaningful work is of great importance to the human psyche even if it does not come in the form of a job.  Cheers to See See!
