The Two Most Important Things In Life. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I want to share the two most essential things in life. We are in March, baby!! March is the start of British SummerTime (the clock goes backwards), International Women’s Day, Mother’s Day, International Happiness Day. The sun is out in Scotland, and the sky is clear blue. Just beautiful. I have a feeling this month will be a good one.
The Two Most Important Things In Life
Happiness And Health
The world is becoming obsessed with money and all things material. From the size of your house, the type of car and even where you travel on your holidays, some people try to go one better do their friends and family.
For me, these people are quite sad.
I have a friend who is similar to the people above, and he is always thinking of money, still talking about money. How to earn it, how to spend it etc. He is part of a lottery syndicate, and there are about fifty people in this syndicate. When he goes out on a Saturday evening, he always takes paper with the numbers and a little pen. At around nine o’clock, he phones his girlfriend and tells her what the numbers are for that particular night. He then spends around twenty minutes checking the numbers and then re-checking to see if he has any winning lines.
He then returns from the toilet area and is asked by other group members about how much he has won/lost. And he has yet to have any significant win to this point, which does not deter him; however, he will start a debate for the next hour, asking different people how they would spend their winnings if they ever won the lottery.
For me, the two most essential things in life are health and happiness.
These are two things that money can not buy. Several years ago, my father became very ill. He had to spend around five months in hospital, and he was only fifty-seven. I feared the worst, even though I was trying my hardest to think and stay positive. I remember thinking, if I could give those doctors everything I own in the world, it still would not help him.
Happiness is the same; at times, I have had lots of cash in my back pocket; however, I have been quite depressed.
At other times I have had next to no money and have been extremely happy.
I believe this Pandemic is a wake-up call to everyone about how important our health and happiness are. We really shouldn’t take life for granted. Watch out for more healthy posts throughout March. If you have any Health Topics you’d want me to cover, please let me know.
I hope you enjoyed that.
