After returning from a long-planned trip to Cape Town, South Africa, M+M founder JPC (Judy Perez Compton) was so inspired by her experiences throughout her travels to the 'fairest cape of all' these words came to her as soon as she returned home.  Always inspired by her world travels and her insatiable wanderlust she realized she has so much more to share about living a mindful life so this is her gift for everyone this #globalwellnessday2015. . . a little poem inspired by her upcoming blog #wellnessandwanderlust.com

 

My True Wealth. . .

 

is not measured in gold,

or social status,

nor expensive acquisitions

 

it is found in experiences

which enrich my soul and

fill my heart with joy. . .

 

to love and be loved by my

beloved

 

to give and receive unconditional

love and peace with family

 

to share laughter and tears

with true friends

 

to taste, smell, and see the

world through travel

 

to feel the rewards of being a

good caretaker of my health

and well being

 

to express compassion and

forgiveness to humankind and

receive it in return

 

to work hard and enjoy what I

do so much it keeps me mentally

motivated to do more

 

to create, ideas, things, art, and

express my true gifts

 

to appreciate Mother Nature and be

in awe of all of her majestic beauty

 

to care and love for an animal who

can only speak to me except through

his eyes and expressions

 

to provide for others less fortunate than

myself in a manner that rises them

to sustain themselves

 

to be content with what I have and

realize it is more than enough

 

to live my life as my authentic self and

never compromise who I truly am for the

sake of anything or anyone

 

this in my opinion is wealth beyond

measure that surpasses time and lives

in our heart and soul forever.
