The losses of those I care about are too frequent reminders that our days are limited. Each of us has no idea when the “off” switch will be thrown on our life. A good method useful in helping one gain perspective is to think of each day as being a deposit of 86,400 seconds made to one’s account. It’s up to each of us how much of is actually used and how it gets spent. The bad news is that any unused or leftover part of the deposit is taken away every midnight. The good news is another 86,400 seconds are deposited in each account with the beginning of a new day. How much is left “unlived” at the end of the day is largely up to each one of us.
When I am anxious it is because
I am living in the future.
When I am depressed it is because
I am living in the past.
