Not sure if the Bear Bryant connection here is true or not.  Doesn't really matter.  I just think it's kinda cool and I, for one, will take these words to heart.  Enjoy!

THIS WAS FOUND IN THE BILLFOLD OF ALABAMA FOOTBALL COACH PAUL "BEAR" BRYANT AFTER HE DIED IN 1982.  THE AUTHOR IS UNKNOWN. 
 
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 personal account for your use. However, this prize has conditions:
 
The set of rules:
 
1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be forfeited by you.
 
2. You may not simply transfer the money into some other account.  
 
3. You may only spend it.
 
4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank re-opens and deposits 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 go out and 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 VERY REAL ...
 
Shocked ???  YES!
Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE* .  We just can't seem to see it.
 
The PRIZE is *TIME*
 
1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds (24 Hours) 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.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!
 
Here's wishing you  a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”....
