“Your Wealth equals your Gratitude. Your Gratitude equals your Wealth.”- Bo Sanchez

As a kid, I used to think that wealth is about money. That is is about treasures and jewelry. That it is about possessing material things. And I believe I had that perception even until after I graduated college.

But as I grow older, and get to experience life outside school and my comfort zone, I get to realize more that wealth is not measured by the amount of money that we have; rather it is measured by how appreciative we are with the things that we have.

You see, no matter how rich a person is in terms of material possession, but if he is not grateful for what he has, he will never be contented and will always be wanting more…nothing will be enough to satisfy his needs or desires. He will never be happy.

On the other hand, a grateful person lives like a King. Why? Because he knows how to appreciate everything that he has in life, no matter how simple or grand they may be…and because of that, he realizes he has so much to be thankful for and he is happy.

I don’t own a company, but I have a beautiful household… and I thank God.
I don’t look like a celebrity, but I have a faithful husband… and I thank God.
I don’t have money for a luxurious hobby, but I have my guitar always waiting for me to play…and I thank God.
I can’t draw, nor swim, nor drive, but I can write and sing and cook… and I thank God.
I can’t afford to treat my friends always, but they will ALWAYS be there for me… and I thank God.
I don’t always eat expensive meals, but I eat 3 times a day… and I thank God.
I don’t have shiny chandeliers above me, but I look at the sky and I have the stars… and I thank God.

…and my list could go on and on and on.

So, are you wealthy? It is your choice.

    1. It’s nice to be grateful for what we already have but we can always still aim for the better. Being grateful does not necessarily mean you can’t have it better. ?

  1. it’s a great thing to be positive and thank god for everything you have but that doesn’t mean you don’t try to be better, or to achieve what you want, so if you can’t swim, learn. if you want to be famous give it a try, why not ?

  2. Inspiring post. so beautiful�. And to think that I just read it this morning. am so grateful for today and I believe am going to have a great day full of gratitude.thank you😍

  3. And you will always crave for more. Which ever form of wealth we are talking about, you never have enough. You learn te appreciate what you already have but you never stop.

    1. Craving for more is not bad…for as long as you work on achieving them. Wishing for things but not doing anything to achieve them is the problem.

        1. I agree with you. It’s easy for people to notice the success of others but they often missed to see the hard work done behind the success. Everybody wants something but not everyone is willing to work for their wants. ?

  4. True ! Wealthy is not about the quantity of material possessions we have but it is about the pleasure we find in our simple and small treasure that we have.Happiness runs after those who knows to find it within what they possess.A person with a lots of property may not be happy if he can’t find happiness in it.:-) 🙂 🙂 Inspirational post 🙂 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for putting this into perspective for me! This is a great reminder that being wealthy doesn’t just mean money, but you can be wealthy in other ways like friendships. =)

  6. and im still wondering why we always tend to be happy and grateful?
    i have a thought that those are some of our emotions
    it gets me to excited state and it makes me out of control
    do we addicted to happiness or do we addicted to a single stream of feelings?
