$86,400 Credited in Your Bank Account! How Does That Sound???

I do not know the origin of this short writing (below), but I absolutely love it.  I was first introduced to it almost a year ago and continue to draw inspiration from it every time I read it.  It really encapsulates the value of what it means to make the most of the time we have now… Life is beautiful, amazing and there for our taking.  And in the words of Anne Shirley (from Anne of Green Gables) “Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it!” 

Here’s to wishing your credit in life is well spent!  Have a great Friday & Weekend!


Credited Bank Account

What would you do… if you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86, 400, that carried over no balance from day to day, and allowed you to keep no cash in your account, and every evening canceled the amount you had failed to use during the day?  What would you do?  Draw every cent of course!


Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds
Every night it rules off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest for a good purpose it carries over no balances.  It allows no overdrafts.
Each day it pens a new account with you.
Each night it burns the records of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no drawing against “tomorrow.”  You must live in the present – on today’s deposits.  Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success.  The clock is running.  Make the most of today.
