Question What would you all prefer?

Would you prefer to be Healthy, Wealthy or Wise?

Re: What would you all prefer?

healthy, because without good health, money and wisdom don't matter all that much!

Re: What would you all prefer?

With health, you can acquire the others permanently. Wisdom is only an asset if put to use. Wealth is only a means of exchange.
I wouldn't scoff at the others, though, in case Santa's reading. Do I want to be poor, dumb, and healthy? No. But we are all on a healthboard, after all.
If there were three coconuts and these three things were under them (presuming I know what's underneath), I would choose "health." Without it, the other things matter little.
Thought-provoking question. Thanks.

i would say good health!! there's no use of being wealthy if you are sick and just spending your money for your medications

Re: What would you all prefer?

If one is wise, they maintain their health and pursue wealth.

I prefer good health. Wisdom comes in time if we are always willing to listen and learn. Wealth is good, but not enjoyable if you are not healthy.

Definitely health. I am thankful every day for my good health, especially when I hear about the struggles others have sometimes just to get out of bed in the morning.

Re: What would you all prefer?

So TracyM1 -- it seems the posters so far have landed on Health as #1. Interesting thread.
We all could use better health, else we woudn't be here right? But there have been times I've wished I could pay for weekly massages again like I could when I was younger and working, and these days I wish for wisdom to try to be the best mom and grandma I can be under these circumstances!
So my vote: #1-Health, #2-Wisdom, #3Wealth

Health, definitely. Wealth isn't just being rich-you cannot be wealthy if you don't have health-what's the good of having money if you're too unfit to enjoy it. Wisdom is ambiguous so definitely healthy.

Re: What would you all prefer?

Healthy is the popular choice and one I'll go with as well. As long as I stay healthy I'm able to be not only productive for myself but <for others>. Not to mention I'm a better person to all those around me.
