Life is not always about material things. Even if you don't have the latest gadgets or designer bags, you have things that make you all the more #blessed such as...
A family that stands by you
Blood is thicker than water. No matter what happened between you and your family in the past, always remember that they are the ones who molded you into the person that you are. They are the ones whom you’ve formed strong bonds with and hopefully, the same people whom you can run to when something happens to you–good or bad.
Friendships that have stood the test of time
Having friends who care and look after you already makes you rich beyond measure. Besides your family, your friends are the ones who have your back when problems arise. Tom Rath, Gallup Organization’s director and author of the book, Vital Friends: The People You Can’t Afford To Live Without, believes that we are all aware of the value of friendship, especially during difficult times. He also pointed out that if you ask people why they became homeless, why their marriage failed, or why they overeat, they often say it is because of the poor quality or nonexistence of friendships. So here's a toast to your nearest and dearest friends!
Health is wealth because without it, no one can enjoy anything in life. Imagine a billionaire who is suffering from different kinds of health conditions and is stuck in bed his whole life. No matter how big his bank account is, there is no way he can appreciate his wealth. Our tip: Continue living a healthy lifestyle now. The healthier you are, the longer you'll be able to enjoy your life.
A meaningful goal
