健康就好

The mantra that I hear from fellow parents, is always one and the same.

“健康就好.” Translated: So long as he/she (the kid) is healthy, that’s good enough.

In this modern society where parents are labelled as competitive, wanting the best for their children and relentlessly cramming lessons of every variety into their precocious children, this phrase is actually an honest strike at the root of what it means to be a parent.

What else matters, if your kid is unwell? Nothing else matters, really.

And if we take it a step further, what else matters for us, if not health? All the money in the world would not be of use, and barter trading life energy for money has never worked out really well.

Moral of the story, take a step back and rest, spend your time well because the rat race never ends. Nothing beats the currency of health, and richness of relationships.
