Gandhi said “It is is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold or silver.” I just returned from my physician’s office where he provided results of several recent tests. It reminded me of the blessings of good health and to pause for a moment to be thankful for the good reports.
So often I am focused on improving the areas that concern me the most. Trimming fat here and strengthening there, that I sometimes take my health for granted. I wonder how critical I would be of that extra five pounds if I were given bad news rather than good. So many would welcome the opportunity to have a clean bill of health with or without an extra few pounds or a little cellulite.
It was a sobering reminder to me to be thankful for my health, to treat my body with care and to dial back on the daily criticism.
Best of luck in your health and wellness journey!
