The best things in life that you will ever encounter or experience are free. There are sure things in life where friends, family, and good memories are much more valuable than any currency.
Money may give you material things but these are only temporary. From happiness to honesty, these are some of life’s best gifts that don’t cost a penny at all.
Here are 12 great things in life that money can’t buy:
1. True love
It is a great feeling to love and be loved by someone, and money can’t buy it. Everyone deserves true love, whether you are the poorest or the richest in this world. All it takes is for you to love unconditionally and find the right one who will love you as he/she loves himself/herself.
You can’t give and spread love to others or to a special someone if you can’t even love yourself. When you have self-love you learn to value yourself more and you would not let other people bring you down easily. You don’t need money to learn to love yourself.
Respect is not easy to earn but when you do earn it, it is a rewarding feeling. You can neither buy nor sell it.
Honor is having a good reputation, and it can be hard to maintain it because we’re only human and we all make mistakes.
5. Long life
Having a long life takes determination and will to stay healthy and live longer. Whether you are poor or a billionaire, you have all the opportunities to take care of your physical and mental health to live more years.
6. ExperiencesThey say that experience is the best teacher, and all those things that you have experienced in the past make you who you are in the present. You don’t need a million bucks to go out of your comfort zone. Continue to explore and learn more experiences in life.
7. Eternal Life
You cannot buy your salvation with money and gold. To earn it, you have to obey God’s commandments.
They say that knowledge is power, and to have this means that you will be able to know and seek more of the better things that life has to offer for us. You can buy education in schools, but you can’t buy the greatest education you can learn from your parents, elders, friends, and even from strangers.
Not all people have the wisdom on things that are essential. Having wisdom is very essential for it can help you decide and choose the right things. You cannot purchase wisdom with money. But the fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom.
You cannot earn understanding by getting rich. You earn it by practicing what you preach. You acquire it by putting your knowledge and wisdom into actions. Remember that only when you actually do it that you can understand it.
Some people will do everything it takes to achieve their own goals even when their integrity is on the line. You should not sacrifice it because it shows what your values are and even what you believe in.
12. Real friends
When you feel like everyone is against you, real and true friends will always be there for you. There may not be a lot but you can count on them. You don’t need to have a mansion or luxury cars to have true friends.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
