Humans are ‘funny’ creatures. I bet you would agree to that notion. God has created this able body to respond, react and to function at its fullest. Somehow, we take for granted of what was given to us. This gift of God.
I, for one, would not deny that I am also guilty of being unappreciative of what was bestowed upon me. No, I am not talking about wealth or worldly things — but health. Our fixation of gaining material wealth has blinded us therefore we have placed $$ right at the top of our list while health has been pushed down a level or two or may not be in the list at all!
I wasn’t concerned about my well-being up to a day ago, when I had a slight fever. I was supposed to have a break — lie on the bed & shake my leg — forget about work. However, it wasn’t to be. My body could not accept this as it is so used to having me being mobile and active. From that day on wards I have decided to stay active to shrug off the fever and headache and doing minor exercise as in window shopping! I have to admit, it is one of my weaknesses.
We seem to forget about the importance of it once we have regained our health. What about those who may never recover? It may be no fault of our own, it may be due to others doing. An accident. What goes through our minds when looking upon a lifeless body on the hospital bed, relying on the life-support machine, oblivious to his surroundings? For a moment there, we would begin to think of ourselves.
How could we forget that “Health is Wealth”?
