“Today you are the oldest you have ever been and the youngest you will ever be.” Let us start this blog topic with that quote.
So days can seems long and days can seem short. Sometimes we are busy and seem to not have much time and others we have no idea what to do with all the time. No matter how the days might go, we need to keep in mind our target goal for each day and that is to utilize every second of it.
One day a gentleman told me a story he was once was told. It was:
“Imagine Chad that there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do?
Draw out every penny, of course!
Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.”
So this is an amazing story to keep in mind each day. We are granted the amazing gift of time to do as we want. We make our schedule, we are free to change it, and are on our own plan. We need to strive each day to never waste our given time, as life is short and we today are the youngest we will ever be. Don’t throw away any moment given to utilize life.
Always make sure to smile, laugh, love, and have a blast. We live good lives so never forget that. Now tomorrow go utilize that day of yours and forever continue to.
