It's official. 2018 is here and has begun.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The very same amount. It's what we do with it that counts. This has been around for a while, but I believe is worth another view....
THE BANK ACCOUNT OF LIFE
Imagine there is a bank that credits your account
Each morning with $86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every “evening” deletes whatever part of the
Balance you failed to use during the day.
What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of course !!!
Each of us has such a “bank”
It’s name is TIME.
It credits you with 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off, as lost,
Whatever of this you have failed to
Invest to good purpose.
It carries over no balance,
It allows no overdraft.
Each day it opens a new account for you.
Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits,
The loss is yours
There is no going back.
There is no drawing against the “tomorrow.”
You must live in the present
on today’s deposits.
Invest it so as to get
from it the utmost in
The clock is running.
Make the most of today.
To realize the value of ONE YEAR …
ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH …
ask a mother who gave birth
to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK …
ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR …
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE …
ask the person who missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND …
ask the person who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND …
ask the person who won a silver medal
in the Olympics.
Treasure every moment that you have!
And treasure it more because you
Shared it with someone special,
Special enough to spend your time.
And remember that time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
That’s why it’s called
… The Present!!
I hope you will make the most of each minute of every day this year and do a little self care along the way.
To health and happiness
When I set up my website and blog under the author section it reads "Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview." Whew - cuz that's all I've got for the moment. I'm a pretty simple person who lives life lovingly. I care deeply and am passionate about many things. I have always had a spirit of (I'm going to call it) entrepreneurship so have been self-employed about as much as I've been employed by others. This is a place where I share thoughts, ideas and happenings. I'm finding that sharing my story (life) helps me as much or more than it helps others and I find that empowering. Keep doin' what you love and lovin' what you do! XO-KM
