Four Buckets of Life

Good morning, let’s go.

Money can’t buy love. Money can’t replace memories. Money can’t bring back the dead. Money can’t fix a broken home. Money can’t undo what was done. Money is exchanged for time is a necessary action for survival.

No amount of money is worth missing your kid’s childhood. I don’t fucking care what you say about it. Money doesn’t build bonds, time does.

Most of us on life’s journey have to exchange for time and effort for money.
Fucking facts.

There are buckets in life we need to figure out. Health, wealth, relationships and purpose are our major buckets. The only reason money must be on the list is, it is how we survive.
It is how we get others to do things for us.
Its value is that of energy.
It is our way of giving others what they also need to survive.

These four buckets of life are for you to fill.

Your Health consists of what you eat, what your body is able to do, how clear you can think, your mental state, it is about how well you love yourself.

Your Wealth is everything to do with money- work, spending, saving, investing, dream and goal funding. Shelter, food, security, all of that is summed up in how you provide for yourself and others. What most people miss is means. How you build your wealth, what you do to build your wealth, takes thoughtfulness. And if you are not the type pay a financial planner and then follow the fucking plan.

Your relationships vary from family, to work, to personal, to community, to religious, and finally to support. You play a role in others lives and they do in yours. How you treat them and how they treat you matters. Companionship matters. Do not sleep on this bucket. There are many, many ways to build relationships with people that matter.

Your purpose is the most elusive bucket. The only reason is we think it is a goal. WE create our own purpose. Even those people who claim they have a calling are just following their desire. Our purpose is who and what we want to be. We have thousands of years of genetic arts and culture beating through our veins. We know what it is to function in society. It is on us to choose our part. And the more we act out of service to others the better we are at it.

All of the buckets are linked together. They share the same well of life. Each can be filled if you put the work in to do so. Most people focus on money as everything. Money is only a means of concentrated energy. It can dissipate. You can use it to help fill other buckets. All of the buckets require time and energy. Focusing on one can leave the others empty.

I gotta go.
