Time is free but it is priceless. We cannot own it, but we can use it. We cannot keep it, but we can spend it. Once we have lost it we can never get it back.

It is like having $86,400 deposited in our private bank account for our use each morning. We may only spend but we may not transfer it into some other account and everything that we do not spend during each day would be taken away from us.

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.-Buddha

Each morning upon waking up another $86,400 is deposited to our bank account but at any time this account can be closed and we cannot receive a new one. What would we do?

We would buy anything and everything we want, not only for ourselves, but for all the people we love and care for.  Even for people we don't know, because we couldn't possibly spend it all on yourselves, right?

We would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because we know it would be replenished in the morning.

This analogy is real. Sometimes we just do not realize that each of us is a winner of this prize which is TIME.

Time decides who you meet in life, your heart decides who you want in your life, and your behavior decides who stays in your life. Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it has become a memory.

Each morning we wake up to receive 86,400 seconds (60 seconds X 60 minutes X 24 hours), 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 used up that day is forever lost. Yesterday is forever gone.

Each morning life gives 86,400 to spend but this can be stopped at any time with out warning. So, what will we do with our 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.  Let us think about it and remember to enjoy every second of our lives, because time races by, so much quicker than we think.

Each new day greets us with no rules but with unconditional opportunities. Let us not dilute the power of this new day with the hardship of yesterday; greet this day the way it has always greeted us with open arms and endless possibilities.  Let us resolve to take care of ourselves; live with gratitude and turn what we have into enough; be happy; love deeply and enjoy life!

Today is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something you have left behind. Let it be something good.
