For those who have crossed the threshold of forty, there is often a lingering sense of resignation, the bleak realization that the vibrant and exhilarating days of our youth have deserted us.

Dorothy Hoffner has proved us wrong.

At a remarkable 104 years old, the centenarian from Chicago fearlessly leaped out of a plane - a feat that most wouldn't even dream of attempting, regardless of their age!

Dorothy took the plunge from an astonishing height of 10,000 feet, tethered to her instructor from the U.S. Parachute Association. @Today shared a clip of the jump on their YouTube channel.

Comments overflowing with genuine admiration and astonishment included, “She’s amazing,” to, “This is one cool lady! You go girl! Keep on having fun!”

What is more amazing is that this was not Dorothy’s first jump. She took her first jump at the incredible age of 100! Viewers marveled at her incomparable spirit and exclaimed, “OMG that is so amazing and incredible. Good for her.” “I want whatever she’s on,” joked another.

The Chicago lady said she is having a lot of fun and is happy she gets to do something other people can only dream about. Her extraordinary accomplishment is an inspiration to all. So, don’t abandon your dreams, hold on to your bucket lists, because 100 is the new forty!
