javascript isset equivalent

i was just looking for an equivalent to the isset in php for javascript, i was initially using .length but this can still cause errors so i found this solution.
if (typeof my_var !== 'undefined') {}


var my_var = "something";
if (typeof my_var !== 'undefined') {
var note = 'do something if my variable exists and has something in it';
if (typeof not_my_var !== 'undefined') {
var note = 'this should not run or cause errors unless not_my_var has a value even though it it not declaired anywhere';

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
