“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches..”

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Are you rich? Here’s a list to help you to find out. You’re rich if you:

  • Woke up this morning
  • Have a roof over your head
  • You ate today
  • You have someone who loves you
  • You love someone back
  • You have clean water
  • You have food in the refrigerator
  • You have someone who could give you food
  • You have a good heart
  • You wish good for others
  • Someone prayed for you today
  • You prayed for someone today
  • Someone cares for you
  • You have clean clothes
  • You have a washing matching to wash your clothes
  • You know how to wash your clothes on hand
  • You have a dream
  • You know how to read and write
  • You’re breathing right now

Understand and then appreciate your riches. Do that and you will never be disappointed. For the grateful, there is no poverty.

  1. You are so right. I’ve been so poor that I had to walk the side of roads with my daughter looking for any money that someone might have dropped. I had to pretend it was a game with my daughter. Now, my life is different and I will never forget to be thankful for the riches of the life I live now and I don’t just mean money, the whole of it. The love, the happiness, the roof over my head, okay I’ll stop, getting emotional now. x
