HEALTH IS WEALTH
Truly, there is no truer maxim in life than this phrase. We may have all the riches and material comforts in life, but if we are not healthy, we will never live to enjoy them. It is sad to see people work themselves to death to accumulate wealth. And when they attain it, they spend all their money for the healing of diverse diseases they have contacted because of the unhealthy habits they developed in their mad quest to acquire their cherished wealth. The solution to this is moderation in all aspects of our lives. True, we must set goals and try to attain them so that we can live a fulfilled life. But in attaining them, we must never forgo or neglect the other aspects of our lives.
We must live a truly holistic lifestyle. We have to eat the right amount of nutritious food that enables our body to rebuild itself. We must exercise regularly. We must have the right amount of sunshine and a regular communing with nature to soothe our nerves and calm our minds. We must have healthy interactions with our loved ones, relatives and friends, avoiding enmity with anyone. We must always think positive thoughts of love, hope, joy, peace and reverence for all life. We must banish all negative thoughts, emotions and feelings from our minds. And most of all, we must be at peace with God, pursuing our purpose in life as He delineated it for us.
As we become a vital cog in the economy of God and the brotherhood of men, we feel fulfilled and satisfied with our lives. Then we can honestly say that we have lived a truly happy, healthy and fulfilled life for all to witness and glorify our God. TO GOD BE THE GLORY NOW AND FOREVERMORE.
