The Declaration of Independence

Many years ago, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin identified three inalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence.  They were that every human being has a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.  And I was reminded of those rights in a book called, The Slight Edge and what they really mean.  So, not only is this for mastering middle age, but it's context is for mastering life, in general.

 

So, when you really think about it, what does it mean "A right to life"?  Off the cuff, one might think, "a right to live…to be on this earth".  And that, to me, is what it means, but let's take that meaning a step further.  That right to life, means a right to health.  In our inalienable rights, we have a right to have health.  Think about it…without your health, what do you have?  Sometimes, we take our health for granted, until we are succumbed to illness, then we know how much our health really means to us.  Ever had even a slight fever, broken or sprained parts in our body?  How about waking and living in pain daily?  We have a right to life and live in health.  Life means health.  As quoted from the book, A Slight Edge, "the healthier you are, the more life you experience.  Let your health get bad enough, and you lose your life altogether"

It's ironic that my first blog post regarding mastering middle age would coincide with the day my sister called to let me know she has breast cancer.  My #1 goal would be to completely wipe this disease completely off the planet…and it would be, if we can learn how to stop our immune system from being compromised.

 

My intentions with this blog and website are to help educate people with what I've learned over the course of the last 6 years so that we can age youthfully.  Too many chemicals for the sake of just making money have been introduced that never needed to be.  There are so many factors involved.  One of the primary reasons I want to master middle age is to prevent disease as best that I can.  Many diseases today are preventable.  Human genetics may give us a blueprint of one being more susceptible than another to certain disease; HOWEVER, genetics doesn't have to be the telling factor.
