Important Investment

Photography by Maxie

Imagine that there is a bank which 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 ever cent, of course!

Each of us has such a bank.  Its name it TIME.  Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.  Every night it writes off, as lost whatever part of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.  It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.  Each day it opens a new account for you.  Each night it burns the remains of the day.  If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.  There is no going back.  There is no drawing against the "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.

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK ask the editor of a weekly publication.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers, who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have!  And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with.  Remember that time waits for  no one.

Friends are very rare jewel.  They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.  They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their heart to you.  Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery and today is a gift.  That is why it's called, THE PRESENT.
