What Would You Do With 86,400??

Imagine that you have won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank deposits $86,400.00 in your private account for your use.

Of course, as in any game, there are rules . . .

The first set of rules:

Anything that you don’t spend each day, you lose.

You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

You are the only one that may spend the money.

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 anytime it can say, “Game Over”.

It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you 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, wouldn’t you?

Actually, you are already playing this game.

It’s called REALITY!

Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank . . . we just don’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 gone!

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?

They 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.

Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass . . . It's about learning to dance in the rain. <3
