A Wealth of Blessings – As Important as a Wealth of Money « Health Now, Wealth Forever

Found a little Irish quotation book and found a quote that goes along with our theme of true wealth.  Since it will soon be St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would share the quote and a few thoughts about my thoughts on true wealth.

MAY JOY AND PEACE SURROUND YOU, CONTENTMENT LATCH YOUR DOOR, AND HAPPINESS BE WITH YOU NOW AND BLESS YOU EVERMORE

True wealth to me is in that quote.  Having  joy, happiness, contentment within and being able to count on that through the tough times is true wealth.  If you have those three embedded within, you really are blessed with a peace that can help you weather the good and the bad.  When I think of these three, I am not thinking of a passing happiness and joy that comes from a moment, but of joy, happiness and contentment that you have banked inside of you.  When you make deposits of gratitude for all things that you are blessed with – the good and the bad—you are able to have quite a bank account of this true wealth.  I have found this to be true these past months.  If I had not started on the path of giving thanks for all before all the “bad” things that have happened to my husband and me, I really think I might have been crushed—even though I have always been a positive person.  Because we had the wealth of these three, we could withdraw from our accounts and again know that after the anger, sadness, changes, etc., etc. we had this wealth that was within to cover the amount of the turmoil and stress and once again bring us back to the positive life.
