"The first wealth is health"- Ralph Emerson
I tell him I am a health, nutrition and movement coach. He mutters in a condescending tone: "Not much money in that PT stuff is there? How do you survive in London?"
I reply, that I earn a small fraction of what I used to, but I have gained far more: a state of health, vitality and happiness. Now for me that is priceless. He however just didn't get it!
"It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."- Mahatma Gandhi
