I am Rich
I am richer today than a year ago in term of health. Without good health, a mountain of wealth means nothing. Yesterday I turned 49! I don’t feel my age at all, instead, I feel even healthier now than I was in my thirties! How is that possible, one may ask.
In my thirties, I started working for LA County and raised two young children, aged five and one. It was a dark period in my life in term of health because I had sleep deprivation for many years. Not knowing that without a sufficient amount of sleep, I encountered so many mental problems such as stresses, negative self-talk, and self-doubt. It took me many years to understand that. Up until last year, I had to force myself to publicly write what I am thankful for every day for several months. All my negative self-talk were replaced with positive ones. In the last few months, I have felt very well. Whenever I am stress out of something, I take deep breaths and walked away. I pray instead of getting frustrated.
In addition, I picked up some new healthy morning routines: Doing Yoga and listening to audio videos on positive affirmation. I love it!
As I look back on my previous birthday photos, I look even younger now than I was years ago. Having good health comes with understanding oneself clearly. It’s very important to have a sufficient amount of sleep, exercise and eating healthy food.
Today I am truly happy and thankful for my health. I am rich. I may not be rich in the material world, but I am rich in other ways where money cannot buy. I am thankful for my family and friends who are always there for me. Thank You!
