Talk to an elderly person around you – somebody around 70 years of age. While some of them will talk with mellowness and satisfaction of the life they have lived, some will talk about the regrets and how they have wasted their life. They had such great opportunities to be truly happy – they could have lived healthier and invested their life to a cause. They had the opportunity but they didn’t make the best use of it. Unfortunately, they lost it.

We are all gifted with this life and before it escapes us, we must make the best of it.
