5 Things Money Cannot Buy

We have all heard the phrase or similar phrase to  “Money cannot buy happiness.” While money can definitely aid in your happiness, it will never be the true source of joy in your life. With that being said, money can buy happiness, but it cannot buy joy. This blog will take a dive into other things that money cannot buy along with joy. 


Money can buy happiness, but it cannot buy joy. You see, happiness is a fleeting outward emotion, and money can absolutely help with that, but joy is the internal state of mind you are truly chasing. Maybe you have had a bad day and you have the means to shop at your favorite clothing brands for an impromptu shopping spree. It is absolutely true that money does not have the ability to maintain your happiness over long periods of time, but it can be the spark of it. Joy is an entirely different story


Money Cannot Buy Love

Sure, money can buy you an account on a dating app. It can buy you plane tickets all over the world for amazing trips to beautiful places. Additionally, it can buy you 5-Star restaurant meals. Furthermore, it can even buy designer wardrobes. Money cannot buy someone’s love for you, nor your love for them. It can absolutely make that love a little more comfortable, and lavish, but it will never be the sole basis of your love. Many have tried. Some even felt like they succeeded for a while, but eventually, the true colors always show for what that money bought, which was a bandaid when what was needed was stitches. Love can be for families, relationships, friendships, you name it. 



No matter how much money you have, you will never be able to buy more time with the people you love. There will always be 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, and 365 days in a year plus one on a leap year. Time is a difficult thing for many people to understand. Some days feel long while others feel like they are moving backward. You can always buy things to fill your time with, but no one has quite figured out how to purchase more hours.


Money Cannot Buy Health

You could make the argument that money can indeed buy overall health or healthier days ahead. At the end of the day, you cannot buy more years only your life. Not to turn this blog negative, but even the most aggressive of cancers do not pay any mind to who is the picture of health versus not, which is where this premise comes from that money cannot truly buy health.

How many times has a miss America contestant said something along the lines of “I would solve world peace”? It seems like a lot right? Well, maybe money could buy that in some respect. However, when it comes to your individual peace that is an entirely different story. Your own peace cannot come from money, fame, or power. Rather from what you give and take away from yourself. Sure, you can buy a secluded mountain house or a divorce lawyer, but at the end of the day, your actions and mindsets will give you peace, not the money in your wallet. 



Money can buy plenty of things in this world. It can buy the ease of life, but it cannot buy what is inside of you. However, joy, time, love, health, and peace are all things that money cannot buy. These things will have to be chased organically in life. Take this blog and look within to see if there is something you have been chasing with money. How can that can be transformed by putting the right attention to it?
