Just imagine that you won the following PRIZE in a lottery: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 into your account. However this prize has rules. Everything you did not spend each day would be taken away from you. You can not transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it. Each morning upon awakening, the bank deposits into your account another $86,400 for that day. The bank can end the game without any warning: at any time and tell you that the game is over. It can close the account, and you will not receive another one.

What would you do? You can buy anything and everything you wanted for yourself, relatives, friends and good causes. You would wisely spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew that 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 canít seem to see it. The PRIZE is TIME. Each morning when we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life. And when you go to sleep at night, any remaining credit time is erased. What you have not used up is lost forever.

What would you do with your 86,400 seconds? Those seconds are worth more then the same amount in dollars. No multi- billionaire when faced with their demise wishes that they made more money in their life. Please think about it and remember to try to enjoy every second of your life, because time is a non-renewable precious resource. When itís gone itís gone.

The sages teach us that yesterday is history, to-morrow is a mystery and to-day we call the present because it is a gift to be enjoyed.

So take good care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy your life. Please remember not to complain about growing old. Some people sadly do not get the privilege.

Have a sensational day.
