Health Is The Most Important Thing Of All
Health is not valued till sickness comes. (Thomas Fuller)
Health is worth more than learning. (Thomas Jefferson)
Health – The general condition of the body or mind with reference to soundness and vigor. Soundness of body or mind; freedom from disease or ailment.
I have an interesting perspective on comparing the value of health, versus the value of money. As a real estate attorney and CPA, I am paid to help people protect their money and to make more money. In fact, I have seen people become quite protective of their money and quite agitated when they are about to lose it. In fact, I have often maintained that people value their money, MORE than they value their health.
On the other hand, one of my best friends over many years is a doctor. She would see the opposite side of the coin. She saw people who were protective of their health and who grew very upset when they were losing it.
We would often have lengthy debates about the value of her work, versus the value of mine.
She would maintain that health was everything.
Nothing could possibly be worth more.
I would maintain that while she might be right, that most people viewed their money as more important UNTIL THEY GOT SICK.
I didn’t say they were right for viewing it that way.
I simply stated what I observed; that people placed a very large value on their money.
I took the attitude that while health was EXTREMELY important, people often don’t value it until they’ve lost it.
As the famous Joni Mitchell song says: You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.
So, What’s The State Of Your Health?
Only you can answer this question.
What I am suggesting is that you develop an appreciation for whatever health you currently have AND that you develop an awareness that you need to devote a little bit of time each day toward improving and/or maintaining your own health in the future.
You need to eat properly.
You need to exercise a little bit each day.
You need to relax a little bit each day.
In other words, you need to sit back and enjoy life.
By doing so, you can acquire and maintain a spirit of health that will serve you for many years to come.
Until next time, may you find your path by walking it . . .

As his 50th birthday grew nearer, Stanley decided enough was enough. He was tired of living a life of obesity.
Since February 2009, Stanley has dropped from a weight of 320 pounds to the mid-190s. He has gone from a life of inactivity to walking a half-marathon daily and full marathons on many weekends.
His latest book in what he calls his “iWarriorWalk Pathfinder Series” is designed to help people ask (and answer) key questions about themselves. Stanley believes that the only way We The People of the United States are going to solve our problems (especially the growing problem of obesity) is by asking the right questions and by coming up with appropriate answers.
Through Foundation EON, he hopes to help you (and America) do just that.
