Short Break: The magical bank

I received this from my MIL and I really like it, so I'm sharing it with CCM readers.  Hope you get something out of it too.


Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest.

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your account for your use.

However, this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.

The first set of rules:

Anything 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 credits your account with another $86,400 for that day.

The second set of rules:

The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say "it's 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.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life! Remember to spend time on making others happy, too.

Here's wishing you a wonderful, beautiful day.

Start spending.

  1. I can't agree more. All of us have 86,400 seconds in a day and that is the only thing we all get given equal amounts of...how we spend it counts!

  19. Greetings! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Cheers!

  20. First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
