Hi! I need your help, I can't understand the phrase "wealth of countenance". It appears in a video on youtube "In the praise of quiet life" from The School of Life channel. Here's the context:

"We can no longer express our more spontaneous, imaginative, vulnerable sides. Along the way, we grow strangers to those who love us outside of our wealth and status. Our children see less of us, our spouses grow bitter. We may own the wealth of countenance, but it might've been ten years at least since we last had the chance to do nothing for a day."

I know exactly what "wealth" and "countenance" mean separately, but the phrase is obscure to me.
