You should redefine your idea of wealth in 2021

I am always growing my own food.

Even in crazy situations… maybe I’m onto something? And I’ve always had what I needed no matter where I go — why? Because I’m wealthy. Maybe I’m not the wealth you think of. No, I’m not wealthy like Bill Gates, Donald Trump, or Arabian Royalty. I am wealthy because:

My groceries are produced in my backyard, on my balcony or patio, and in the forest. My food subscriptions, my healthcare bill, and therapy costs are practically zero. Plus, I have more energy than 95% of people my age.

Think about the concept of wealth for a minute. When you’re 50+, you should have money saved, passive income flowing, and emergency funds ready to be considered slightly rich or wealthy. I took it a step further and wanted great health too.
