Thanks to my dear friend Gittl Nadel who absolutely made my day when she forwarded me this anonymous Email…
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 penny, and use it in the best way possible, 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?

Aren’t they worth so much more than the same amount in dollars?
Think about that, and always think of this: Treasure and make the most of every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

Make sure to spend those precious seconds caring for the people you love, doing the things you love, and living in a way that will bring Joy to your Creator.

Here’s wishing you a wonderfully beautiful day!!!

  1. Oh, thank you! This is xactly the message I needed at this point in time! It’s so hard to get back to arth after being away for the Yomim Tovim. Every second counts! THanks!

  2. How true! How well put – but not always so easy to remember and carry through.

    Need to put this one up somewhere – perhaps by the negel vasser for each morning!
