Why we love SparkPeople

Thursday, September 01, 2016

Today someone joined my Spark Trivia Fanatics team named SEABEACHRAT. As is my practice I visited her page and gave her a Sparkgoodie Welcome Mat. While I was there I read a note that BARBIEE52 wrote her that really resonated with me. It goes like this:

Imagine 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 cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank. It's 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. 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 drawing against "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!

I have always thought that my time is worth more when waiting on hold to talk to someone on the phone, waiting on line or waiting for the timer to ring when I'm hungry. I make a very cool salary of $91.46 an hour and I don't like to waste my time. I guess that's why this elegant post got to me today. I never would have seen it if I wasn't an active Sparkpeople member. And that is why I love Sparkpeople. That and that they help me stay fit and healthy of course.

    Nice way of looking at it - though, well, now that I'm retired I mostly have time!
