If you were given $84,600 per day and knew that, that money would not carry over to the next day, what would you do with it? How would you spend every last cent of it? Elvis has figured out a way to do exactly that, watch the video to find out how.
Time. The main commodity in our lives we fight to get more of but never quite know how much is left. Because our time is limited, it is the most valuable thing we can invest.
When you invest time in yourself, in a relationship, or in a dream, it has the potential to develop into something that is beyond even your wildest dreams. Where we choose to invest our time is one of the most important things we can do but more important than just deciding where we spend our time it is about learning to value our time.
I spend many days in my life walking around with the assumption that I have this day, the next, and thousands more coming in my life so if I want to spend today upset over something small, or stressing about things that have happened in the past that I can’t change, it gives me the perfect justification.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you need to be a happy, smiling ray of sunshine everyday who is pooping out rainbows because life inevitably will throw challenges in our face that will take us to places we don’t want to go. Places where we feel scared, alone, or confused, uncertain of what the future will bring. But that’s where the real challenge comes into life. And that challenge comes in the form of a question:
How do YOU respond when life isn’t exactly what you expected?
I saw a great quote recently, it read, “You don’t need to be perfect to inspire others. let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfection.” Let’s face it guys, none of us are perfect and when we stop trying to be, understanding and embracing our flaws and imperfections, we can come to a place where we love ourselves truly and then can share a deeper more real love with the people around us.
What do we hear time and time again, “Life is short.” Well if you only get 84,600 seconds each day stop counting how few seconds you’ve got left and start finding a way to make those seconds count.
I love you all,

Mom, thank you and Dad for constantly being the inspiration and reminder to let go of fear and embrace each day. This is a lesson you have taught me but the constant reminders help me to reinforce it over and over again.
I love you so much,
