Taking Health For Granted

"Remember, we never miss the water till the well runs dry. Is it not too often true that we do not value health till we lose it? When we are full of vigor and vim and strength we rarely give a thought to safeguarding our vitality. We are so busy with so many things that we leave our health to take care of itself. How many men ruin themselves physically, striving too strenuously to enrich themselves financially? The country is strewn with men, once powerful giants mentally and bodily, who have become physical, nervous wrecks, victims of overwork and worry."

Agree with the sentiment. Never too late to start taking better care of yourself. For some added inspiration, I invite you to check out this short video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/5495 -- about one woman's struggle with a debilitating disease and her "aha moment" that changed her outlook on life. I hope you enjoy it.
