Hope is wanting something to happen, an expectation. If we use it in a prayerful, spiritual way it is more empowering. When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr said we must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope it was a deep and well-intended prayer.

It is HEALTH that is real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver. (Mahatma Gandhi). Health is a state of being free from physical or mental illness or injury. There is a definite relationship between one’s sense of well-being and his/her’s physical and mental health.

Your health is what you make of it. Everything you do and think either adds to the vitality, energy and spirit you possess or takes away from it. (Ann Wigmore) We are what we think.

Happiness is a state of contentment or satisfaction; it is something we do, are grateful for, or fulfills a wish or desire. We will have true happiness when we enjoy the journey of one’s life rather than the destination.

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. (Joseph Addison)

As we celebrate the New Year instead of making the typical resolutions (lose weight, exercise more, get a new job, etc.), let’s deeply and truly look at how we live. How do we use and live the words hope, health, and happiness?

We can make 2021 and the world better by following the words of this quote: He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope has everything. (Thomas Carlyle)
