THE MAGIC BANK ACCOUNT

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 you to spend.

However, this prize has 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, Its 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 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?

ACTUALLY This GAME is REALITY!

Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can'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 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?

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.

The past is over, you can't change it, live for the future!

So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and Enjoy Life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start spending.........
and enjoy your weekend!

I try to. But I wouldn't mind extra money magically appearing!

Great post. You had me thinking this was going to be one of those "what if" party games. Very thought provoking. I should probably walk away from the computer and use my seconds wisely :)
