“I’m unstoppable. I’m just getting started,” May Musk recently told CBS Mornings.

That is right. Musk recently smashed contrived ideas around age as she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated—at 74-years-old.

The Canadian-South African model, who is the mother of famed entrepreneur Elon Musk, was photographed in Belize wearing a compilation of swimsuits for the annual issue. She dazzles in every photo, abounding with the vibe that youthfulness transcends numbers.

When CBS Mornings asked her about the key to happiness, Musk offered some great life lessons: You can say no to things. You don’t have to listen to the naysayers. And having a dog brings immense joy.

Also Musk, who is a dietician, says she eats well to care for herself.

We applaud and thank Musk for showing us that life gets better as we age. If we care for our bodies and minds, we all can be unstoppable.
