This article was shared with me by my sweetie. He received it from a friend. It is a good way of looking at your day from the time your eyes open in the morning to the time your eyes close at bed-time. Spend your seconds wisely.
“Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use.
However, this prize has rules, just as any game has rules. The first set of rules would be: Everything that you did not spend during each day would be taken away from you.
You may not simply transfer the leftovers into another account. You may only spend it.
Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules: The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say “it is over”. The game is over! It can close the account and you will not recieve a new one.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THIS GAME WERE REALITY?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself but for all the people you love, right? Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every cent, right?
This game is REALITY.
Each of us is in possession of a magical bank. We just can’t seem to see it because it isn’t money we are getting from this magical bank….it is TIME.
Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life and when we go to sleep at night any remaining time is not credited to us.
What seconds we haven’t lived up that day are forever lost.
Yesterday is forever gone.
Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time without warning.
So, WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR 86,400 seconds each day?
Enjoy every second of your life because time races by so much quicker than you think.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, be HAPPY, LOVE DEEPLY and ENJOY LIFE!
