The Best Prize Ever!
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 certain rules.
The first set of rules would be:
1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it.
3. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules:
1. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, It's over, the game is over!
2. It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.
What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right? Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right? You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
ACTUALLY This GAME is REALITY!
Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem to see it.
The MAGICAL BANK 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 we haven't lived up that day is 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?
Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.
Think about that, and always think of this:
Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.
So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!
Wow! I never thought of it like that before. Puts a whole new perspective on things doesn't it.
WOW--something to think about for sure.
Something to think about, for sure!
I believe life is too short, dont sweat the small stuff, love till you cant love anymore and forgive at every opportunity, and hate is just a waste of good energy, smile till your cheeks hurt, laugh till your belly is sore....
An interesting metaphor! Live today as if it is your last - have fun, be kind, laugh
I want to post this to my facebook, it is an awesome perspective on life!!
Someday we will all give an accounting of what we did with our time.
