“My friend’s mom has eaten healthy all her life. Never consumed alcohol or any “bad” food, exercised every day, very active, took all supplements, never went in the sun without sunscreen and for short periods, she pretty much protected her health. She is now 76 and has skin cancer, bone marrow cancer and extreme osteoporosis.

My friend’s father eats lots of bacon, butter, fat, never exercised, was out in the sun burnt to a crisp every summer, he basically took the approach to live life to his fullest. He is 81 and the doctors say his health is that of a young person.

People, you cannot hide from your poison. It’s out there and it will find you so in the words of my friend’s still living mother: “if I would have known my life would end this way I would have lived it more to the fullest enjoying everything I was told not to!”

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”
