The Daishonin encourages us in his writings, "Life is limited; we must not begrudge it. (What we should ultimately aspire to is the Buddha land.)"* Let's exert ourselves with every possible effort at this very moment, which will never come again, and be victorious! Let's leave no kind of regrets behind.
