Have You Filled A Bucket Today
An Example of Daily Happiness for children, McCloud teaches how everyone in the world carries an ideal bucket. Its mission is to keep your good ideas and outlooks. You feel great when it is full and sad and alone when it is empty. It is the same for everyone. Preparing a full bucket is pleasant, but you need other bodies to fill it and fill other people’s buckets. You fill a bucket by doing a loving, caring personality that presents other people with a unique feel. If you are making this, you are called a bucket filler.
