See you in 2077!"
Today I was thinking about Dr. Joel Wallach saying we could live over 120 years. And I thought "what if I was was twice my age?" That would have me a robust 126 1/2 years old. Wow.
So then I just took my age 63 years BACKWARD from my birth year of 1951. That would have meant that I was born on July 1st of 1888. Stay with me. You should try it.
Think of what went down in the 63 years before my birth. The breakthroughs in medicine. The Wright Brothers. The computer. And on and on. All the way up to July 1, 1951.
Nothing remarkable happened on my birthday in ’88 but some interesting stuff went down that year. Like Benjamin Harrison was elected the 23rd President of the United States. Thomas Edison filed a patent for the optical phonograph (the first movie). The artist Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear and sent it to a prostitute for safe keeping. I’ll bet she was thrilled to get that! Oh…and George Eastman started a little company called Eastman Kodak. A couple of cutting edge inventions came on the scene too. The ball point pen and the drinking straw!
I have witnessed great things in the 63 years since my birth in 1951 but now try to imagine what’s going to occur between now and 2077 when I hit 126! If that isn’t enough to make you want to hang around I don’t know what would.
Just think about the generations of family I will have. How about the inventions and the progress I will witness. I will never forget my mom telling me how afraid she and my dad were about bringing us into this unstable world. I felt the same way when Adrian and Courtney made their way on to the planet.
I don’t feel this way at this very young age of 63. I know there will be wars. Famine. Natural disasters. There always are. But we always get through them. As Americans and as humans. We persevere and we adapt. I choose to believe wonderful thing are going to happen. That this planet is going to embrace peace, harmony and health. And we as the human race will get more focused on keeping us all alive and getting along.
I’m excited about the future. As long as I get to be a part of it. And I know I am here for a reason and I am not supposed to give up or slow down.
That’s why I am walking at least 10,000 steps every day. That’s why I take the 90 for Life like my existence depends on it. That’s why I am working so hard to create an income stream that is going to support me through all of this hopefully very long adventure.
Because I truly believe it’s going to happen.

Great retro- spective about moving forward in life. I move forward in life with joy and with ease, well that's the plan and I'm determined to do so. Over ten years ago I was struggling to see how I'd be able to enjoy life being there with my Kids and G/kids. I was working at an Indigenous plant nursery and got to feed plants with a liquid seasol natural feed .Every 2 days later whilst watering them I'd see how healthy green shiny colourful and strong they looked. I kept thinkin man I need something like that. Couple of weeks later I found it and my life and energy is back. I could see a future again for me. Since then I now consume 90-4-life +++ other Youngevities like my life depends on it, and it does. Iv'e worked in a lot of different jobs and positions got to meet by Dr. Bose ( Bose/ Better Sound Through Research ). People thought he was crazy when he released his bench mark 901 speaker system.the speaker that pointed backwards at the wall? I was taken by him walking around with a Hewlitt Packard in his pocket and a secretary by his side short handing his latest revelations on sound theories springing to his mind ( this was back in the early-mid eighties) Well god rest his soul as passed away couple of years ago but he's still listed in the top 20 richest of America. I'm sure Dr.Wallach has endured many doubters and knockers along the way too, but with all the solid research and experience and a firm belief of what he's doing ( plus all the nutrients flowing through his body and mind) he's inspired to keep following his dream. As I've got a Bose Lifestyle system at home my dream is to inspire others to be able to lead a healthy, rich life answering to only themselves and their own efforts to do so. As I am in the process of mastering. See you in 2055
