What is your quality of life?
What does the phrase quality of life mean to you? Is it where you live, the car you drive, how much money you have in the bank? Does your marital status determine your quality of life?
I say none of the above. When we come into this world the first thing our mothers and fathers did was count fingers and toes. Simple, but what if there weren't ten of each? All concerns about us at that time were our health, yep basic health. We just want to be able to function normally in our day to day live. I want to see and hear clearly. I want to smell pancakes in the morning and taste them too. I need to feel the, well, let's just say I need my sense of touch. At any rate when we come to the end of this journey called life the only thing that matters is our health. Go to any hospital ICU or Nursing home hospice unit. Nothing else matters. The ups and downs, gains and losses are just the scenery in this journey. Enjoy the ride, learn as much as you can and teach whenever it's possible. Quality of life is ten fingers, ten toes and everything working in between.
