Sometimes life is out of balance and we just don’t know what is wrong. We chase our dreams, but sometimes realize our dreams were of wealth, not wellth.
My Thoughts on Wellth by Jason Wachab
There is more to life than living to be wealthy as the world sees it. Money doesn’t buy happiness, as those that have it know that. Those of us that don’t, dream of things we do not have….but does that make you happy?
The definition of Wealth vs Wellth acording to Jason Wachob is:
noun/welth derived from the Middle English, welthe: meaning well-being and happiness: a large amount of money and possessions.
noun/welth A new and more valuable life currency: a life exemplified by abundance, happiness, purpose, health and joy.
What I loved about this book is how real Jason is. He doesn’t come from a Mormon background and lived a life most people can probably relate to. He isn’t a Mormon author either so for those looking for that kind of book, this isn’t it.
I will tell you if you do come from a Mormon background you will have to put a little bit of a filter on, but you will come along beautiful passages like this:
And like this one where he quotes CS Lewis:
Not everything he says in this book is something I agree with, but I do appreciate his experience and how he is helping others see the value that living a balanced life can bring. I love how he mentions massage therapy and holistic healing as well as Western medicine. He believes that you should always consult both, a great example being how he consulted a doctor about his back but then tried yoga and healed his back instead of having to have surgery.
Another example is how he consulted a doctor because he was feeling under the weather and found out he had a parasite in his gut (hadn’t been outside the US) and needed to take antibiotics to get rid of it.
Its a great example how we need both Eastern and Western views of medicine and it is actually up to the individual to do a check and balance kind of method when going about your health.
I did mark a few pages (the pages listed above) and I like the quotes he has in the book. He talks about how to Eat. Move. Work. Believe. Explore. Breathe. Connect. Love. Heal. Thank. Ground. Live and Laugh (which can be the most important sometimes!)
Sometimes we don’t know how to balance our lives. I know at times in my life I have forgotten a few of these things. I love how he comes off in a non judgmental tone and just talks about why he believes in his lifestyle. He doesn’t go off of what you “should” do, he just states what has worked for himself and encourages you to learn about you and what works for you.
From a Mormon perspective, to be honest, this really isn’t a book I would have picked to read for myself, but I am glad I read it. We could all use a little more Wellth in our lives!
