Jann Arden and Parents

Jann Arden wrote about spending time with her parents. I commented:

I’m living with my Mom. Sometimes I can’t laugh and sometimes when I do laugh it hurts her feelings because I am laughing at her even when she is laughing about it too. Mom said the worst thing is people thinking you are feeble or forgetting things when you aren’t. Assuming you are “just old” when you are still just forgetting the same stuff you would have forgotten at any age. Watching your parent(s) get old is creepy because you know it will be you in another 20 years. But, as Mom also pointed out one day, I will be alone when I’m old. “Who will help you?”, she asked me. I don’t know and that is the worst part of all of it for me.

The Magic Bank Account

This was in my email today, forwarded from my Mom:

 

Magic Bank Account
Something to think about …
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.
This 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 that, and always think of this: 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 …

Introverted Art

My name is Ana and I am an introvert. Contrary to what most people think, an introvert is not simply a person who is shy. Introverts are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. I am a full time introvert and a part time photographer, cook and food connoisseur, artist, writer, and couch potato.

I liked the description on this blog.

Are you Fiction or Non-Fiction?


You Are Fiction


You believe that life is magical, especially when you enter the world of ideas.

You are highly creative and imaginative. The real world often isn’t enough for you.You are optimistic and hopeful. You believe that we craft our own destinies.

You believe that if you can dream it, you can do it. And you do a lot of dreaming.
