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: 
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 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, right?


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 any  time... WITHOUT WARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

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!

Here's wishing you a wonderfully beautiful day!
