Health: Priority #1

If you don't have health, your quality of life sucks.  I don't care if you have ten million dollars in the bank; if you don't have the ability to do what you want, when you want because of hangups with your health, you don't have anything.  For some people, money is the barrier to their desires, but that can always be earned.  Once you lose your health, you cannot buy it back.

When they're removed from your life, you sob in wrenching pain; eventually, months later, you wonder what you ever saw in them and roll your eyes at your past self and her choices. But for me, years down the road, I am thankful for all of my failed relationships because they each have shaped a part of who I am.
