Al and Peggy's Corner: Something To Think About - Wednesday's Wisdom

Something To Think About - Wednesday's Wisdom

Something To Think About - Wednesday's Wisdom
You may have heard this before, but if you are like us, it may have slipped your mind.
We think it is too profound to be forgotten, so here it is again. Unfortunately we do not know who the author is.
 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 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?

 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 to 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?
 Aren't they 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 wonderfully beautiful day!!!

Hi Al and Peggy,

how profound, as we grow older those seconds seem to be ticking away faster and faster, and it takes a little longer to get things done every day as well.......

Better get on with rushing through the day traying to catch up on all the things we want to experience........

Good morning, Al & Peggy. Very profound. Age certainly has a way of letting us know how precious time really is...

Al & Peg - now I am going to use some of that currency thinking about how I can best use it. Its a good news bad news kind of thing. Thanks, I think;^)

Al & Peggy,

I agree time is an undervalued sign of wealth and it takes wisdom to use it wisely. So many people are thinking money/assets are THE sign of wealth. There are plenty of people that would trade money for time or health.

Wow! It's true Al & Peggy, we need to find better ways to spend our time. Because for a while, "Time is on our side" and then it shifts without warning!

Al and Peggy, great reminder of our most precious asset, the limited and uncertain amount of time we have, and the challenge to make the most of it.

Hi Al & Peggy, oh my, that is such an amazing thought there, you really shook me into some deep thoughts. Thank you!

I will try to spend it all, each day, to the best of my ability, with others, on myself, you name it, I will spend it each day. With a smile on my face and a song in my heart. How's that?

Al and Peggy I had not heard this before so thank you for posting it.  It certainly puts the value of our time into a whole new perspective.

Al & Peggy, I've always been aware of time miss spent or wasted and that none of that gets a second chance.  I've never quite looked at it the way this was put, but serves as a great reminder to use the time we have to the fullest.

Al & Peggy--86,400 sounds like so-so-so many.  However, at the end of the day we wonder where time went.  Take time to enjoy each moment.  Guess maybe I should maximize my sleep tonight.

Well, if it was money, I could very easily spend it all each day. First, I’d have breakfast at D.Z. Akins, then I’ve have lunch at Ottavio’s, then I’d have supper at Pizza Nova, then I’d write a check to a charity for whatever was left over!

Unfortunately, since it’s only time, well, I guess I’ll spend my time working to make money so that when I can no longer work because I’m physically or mentally incapable of working,  I’ll have enough money put away so that I don’t have to depend on the government or anyone else to take care of me.
