I’m probably in my worst physical health I’ve been in for a while… and mental health is a life-long journey.

I friend told me this morning, with the caution of the pitfall of comparison, that right before me were two examples of people struggling hard with their health and well-being. He was telling me that I had a lot to be grateful for.

Just facts. Alcohol and drugs are playing a definite factor in these two individuals state of mind.

My intimate experience with people is a clear mind tends to support a more positive environment; a kinder experience.

As my brother mentioned yesterday, there was a wonderful celebration of Pish’s 50th birthday. I really was a warm, uplifting party. And alcohol was definitely served. So I’m not a proponent of prohibition. I think inebriation is a very personal choice.

All this said, I am grateful for my health—and the people in my life who support it.

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
