Keeping a Watch on your Bank Account
Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:
morning your bank will deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for
your use. However, this prize comes with rules just like any game has
The first set of rules would be:
1. The money that you do not 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. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.
The second set of rules:
1. The bank can end the game without warning. At any time it can say, "It's over, the game is over!"
2. 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 your friends as well, 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?
ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS LIFE!!
Each of us is in possession of such a "magical" bank. We just can't seem to see it.
THE MAGICAL BANK IS TIME!
awakening morning we 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.
WELL, what would 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:
every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than
you think. So take care of yourself, and enjoy life with your loved ones
& friends as well!
A Question of Ageing
will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging
about it. This is so true. I love to hear them say "you don't look that
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
people try to turn back their odometers. Not me! I want people to know
why I look this way. I've travelled a long way and some of the roads
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
One of the many things no one tells you about ageing is that it is such a nice change from being young.
Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
A Healthy Diet
and Yvonne were 85 years old and had been married for sixty years.
Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they
carefully watched their pennies. Though not young, they were both in
very good health, largely due to Yvonne's insistence on healthy foods
and exercise for the last decade.
One day, their good health
didn't help when they went on yet another holiday vacation and their
plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven. They reached the pearly
gates, and St. Peter escorted them inside. He took them to a beautiful
mansion, furnished in gold and fine silks, with a fully stocked kitchen
and a waterfall in the master bath. A maid could be seen hanging their
favorite clothes in the closet. They gasped in astonishment when he
said, 'Welcome to Heaven. This will be your home now.'
Tony asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. 'Why, nothing,'Peter replied, 'remember, this is your reward in Heaven.'
looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf
course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth..
'What are the greens fees?,' grumbled Tony.. 'This is heaven,' St. Peter replied. 'You can play for free, every day.'
they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch. 'Don't even
ask,' said St. Peter to Tony. This is Heaven, it is all free for you to
Tony looked around and nervously asked Yvonne 'Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods and the decaffeinated tea?'
the best part,' St. Peter replied. 'You can eat and drink as much as
you like and you will never get fat or sick. This is Heaven!'
'No gym to work out at?' said Tony - 'Not unless you want to,' was the answer.
'No testing my sugar or blood pressure or...' - 'Never again'
Tony glared at Yvonne and said, 'You and your Bran Flakes. We could have been here ten years ago!'
