Resources and time go parallely with you, when you divert your path to catch time you lose hold of the resources and when you try to use the resources near you, time walks ahead. 'You come alone' and you have been listening to this phrase ever since your childhood when you did not even have the conscience to understand the difference between nothing and everything. When you finally start realizing the importance and the benefits of the resources around you, time has already gained so much speed that you start giving up.
Now, if you be with yourself, appreciating and applauding all the things that you already have and all the time that you have without even trying to explore new things; resources will not wait for you. When you finally wake up from the appreciation sleep, new resources will replace the old ones and you will consume more time to adapt to those new aliens.
The best possible way, not to regret about anything later in our lives is to try to keep a balance between time and the consumption of time to utilize the resources at the right time.
