magine 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.

The set of rules:

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.
3. You may only spend it.
4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
5. 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 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. Even for people youdon’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 REAL!

Shocked ?? YES!!

Each of us is already a winner of this PRIZE. We just can’t seem to see it.

This PRIZE is TIME !!

1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life,
2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.
3. What we haven’t lived up that day is forever lost.
4. Yesterday is forever gone.
5. 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!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start spending…. Enjoy every second you have !

I should stop spending my seconds reading forums and scratching my butt. I should go build something. Yeah,... right after I check out the blogs.

This thread is why I started to post instead of just read. In the little time I’m at forums I usually just see what others are talking about.

eddie, That is a great way to look at life. You must be a philosopher in your other life. I’ve always been a big believer in not wasting any of the time allotted to you (the hours spent on LJ are not deducted from your lifespan).

100% correct, eddie. Nice right-up. One of my favorite quotes is by James Dean: “Dream as if you’ll live forever, Live as if you’ll die today”. That’s my signature

Eddie: ”...—Jesus Is Alright with me…”

You had me going UNTIL that last line. Take your religion elsewhere, thank you very much.

I appreciate the thought about time (and support that), though you have to admit your signature line immediately following this particular post could very easily be inferred as promotion. Just sayin…

Boy I hear that! I grew up in the Midwest “Bible Belt” and it took me until well into my adult life to get over the “forced feeding” if you will. ‘Nuf said, I’ll be quiet now… 8^|
