THE MAGIC BANK ACCOUNT
Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 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 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 the people you love and care for. 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 all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?
ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS REAL! Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it. The PRIZE is “TIME":
So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!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 used 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 it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think
"DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD SOME PEOPLE DON'T GET THE PRIVILEGE!"
Only fools and idiots squander time--like video gamers. Time is the one commodity we have which we cannot replace. The one thing I notice as I age is time travels faster and faster. Those 86,400 daily seconds pass now as if they we only 15,365. By tomorrow they will be down to 15, 015 seconds. Life quickly passes us by. And almost as bad, nothing seems to function like it used to.
I bought an antique "Black Beauty" Heddon bamboo fly rod from an older gentleman many years ago. He was probably in his 80's. When I asked him why he was liquidating his fly fishing collection, he tearfully said it was because the river rocks were bigger and much more slippery than they used to be and his son was more concerned about his fishing the streams. So he was selling everything and packing up and moving to California to live with his son and grandchildren. God truly help us.
May what remains of YOUR life be filled with heart stopping takes and tight lines. Come and fly fish Idaho very soon! Before it is too late!
