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 private account for your use..
However, this prize has Rules:
The set of Rules:

 
1.. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
 
2.. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
 
3.. You may only spend It.
 
4.. Each morning upon awakening, The bank opens 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 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 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 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....

 
"DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD !"

Don't you wish this was real?  Just a "nobody" doing something extraordinary to bring smiles to faces that maybe don't have that much to smile about.  Thanks for sharing.

A WISE MAN ONCE SAID...
1. IF MY BODY IS EVER FOUND ON A JOGGING TRAIL, JUST KNOW THAT I WAS MURDERED SOMEWHERE ELSE AND DUMPED THERE. 
2.  RESPECT YOUR ELDERS.   THEY GRADUATED FROM SCHOOL WITHOUT THE INTERNET. 
3.  I'VE DECIDED I'M NOT OLD.  I'M 25  —  PLUS SHIPPING AND HANDLING. 
4.  WHY DO I HAVE TO PRESS "1" FOR ENGLISH?  DID AMERICA MOVE? 
5.  WE HAVE ENOUGH GUN CONTROL.    WHAT WE NEED IS IDIOT CONTROL. 
6.  BEHIND EVERY ANGRY WOMAN STANDS A MAN WHO HAS ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT HE DID WRONG. 
7.  LET'S STOP SENDING MONEY TO OTHER COUNTRIES AND LET THEM HATE US FOR FREE. 
8.  VEGETARIAN:  ANCIENT TRIBAL NAME FOR THE VILLAGE IDIOT WHO CAN'T HUNT, FISH, OR LIGHT FIRES!
9.  I LOOK AT PEOPLE AND SOMETIMES THINK "REALLY"?  — "THAT'S THE SPERM THAT WON?” 
10.  IN MY DEFENSE I WAS LEFT UNSUPERVISED.
