Once in a while, I come across something posted on Facebook with some redeeming value. A friend of mine shared a video clip using jelly beans to demonstrate how many days we have in an average lifespan.
The pile was broken up into the total days we spend growing up, eating, sleeping, watching tv, doing chores, commuting, etc. After taking all the jelly beans which represent the number days spent performing life’s tasks, we are left with a small pile of beans for leisure time—fun time.
As much as I avoid going to the grocery store, I can add to my pile of having fun days. I don’t commute or travel far to the stores, so I can add some more beans to that same pile. If I quit showering, I can add even more beans.
However, I’m wasting jelly beans by worrying over way too much. The worry is stealing from my leisure pile of beans.
What the video came down to—if you only had one jelly bean left, what would you do with it?
That little video has made me go hmmmmm for days. I’ve also wondered how many of their beans the people used to make the video…which can be found here.
What will you do with today’s jelly beans?
