The One Investment that You Can Never Lose

While talking with a close friend this morning, he said, “isn’t it amazing that there is one thing that you can invest in that you can never lose?”

You can invest in your career and then when you take your foot off the brake, you can lose traction. You have to keep putting in energy and effort to make forward progress and not slide back. Physical fitness often seems that way. If you stop running for a couple weeks, there is a whole trajectory to getting back in shape.

If you put money in the stock market, it may grow, it may shrink. If you buy a house, it may lose or gain its value. Or you could lose it altogether in a natural disaster- it could burn down, or be swept away by a flood, like my dear friends in Colorado have experienced recently.

But there is one investment that never loses its value. The investment of loving, understanding, witnessing, and knowing your self never decreases in value. The bright flame inside only increases its burn. The fire in your eyes shines brighter.


Your hair is probably going to turn white. Dear friends will move away. You may lose the very thing you thought was most precious- your fertility, your spouse, your child, your job, but you can never lose yourself.

Every small step that we take to care for ourselves in the deepest way possible- to treasure the irrefutable parts of our selves – has more traction and return than we can even imagine.  What will you do today to discover and feed that part of yourself?

Have courage!
