86,400 Seconds In A Day

The 2009 American Idol (AI) winner Kris Allen's first song is out and its a huge hit. It's also one of my favorite songs at the moment because 1. I'm a huge AI fan and 2. I like the song as it has a good meaning.
One part of the song goes like this:

Yeah... gotta start lookin at the hand of the time we've been given
here this is all we got and we gotta start pickin
it every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
gotta live like we're dying
We only got86 400 seconds in a day to
turn it all around or throw it all away
we gotta tell 'em that we love 'em
while we got the chance to say
gotta live like we're dying
This is a great song about living each day to the fullest. These past few weeks I've been having a few stressful and rough days at work, so it's always great to go home at 4:30 and talk to family and friends and do things for myself. You only have 86,400 seconds in a day, so make the best of it.
I encourage you to go out each and every day and live life to the fullest. I often catch myself working overtime on work projects or doing things for others, but I have to remember to take time out for myself. I don't regret what I do for others, but I don't want to regret what I don't do for myself.
