I came across this inspiring reading and wanted to share it with you. I would give credit to the writer, but it was tagged as “anonymous”. It’s an interesting perspective:
Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your personal use.
However, this prize has rules. The set of rules are as follow:
- Everything that you don’t spend each day will 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 for the new day.
- The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can
say,“Game Over!” It can close the account and you will not receive a
What would you personally do with your prize?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for
yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people
you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself,
right? You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you
knew money would be replenished in the morning, right?
Actually, THIS GAME IS REAL. Shocked ? Yes! Each of us is already a winner of a much more valuable *PRIZE*. We just don’t seem to realize it.
The prize 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 used 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 today?
Those seconds are worth much, much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to 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!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending” your
valuable *PRIZE* wisely.
