First class life

I read yesterday that Donald Trump had a "first class wedding". I agree that in terms of expenses, you can't do much more. Do you have a First Class life? How do you define a First Class life? Is it in terms of dollars or other monetary currency? How about emotionally? Do you have a first class life emotionally? If not, how would that look like for you? Do you have First Class integrity, the kind of life that is aligned with your deepest values? Do you have First Class relationships, the type where you can be yourself and are respected? Do you have a First Class career, doing the work you feel passionate about?

I would love to have all the money in the world. Yet I have lived through experiences that have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that money is the proverbial cherry on the cake. It's not the whole cake. While it can provide the means to evade reality, money cannot buy health, physically or mentally; it cannot buy peace of mind, it cannot heal relationships or a broken heart nor can it replace caring and nurturing; it cannot replace work you love, or lack of meaning in your life.

I wish you the cherry AND the whole cake too.
