The Magical Bank - food for thought

Something To Think About!

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 had rules, just as any game has
certain rules.

The first set of rules would be:

Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away
from you.
You may not simply transfer money into some other 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's
over, the game is over! 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 the 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,

Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem
to see it.

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 anytime....WITHOUT WARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds? Aren't they 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, and enjoy life!
