You are given a finite amount of time. Throughout your life you will be asked to trade this time. Some will be exchanged for sleeping. Part will be devoted to sharing time with those you love. Time will likely be traded for money, which is what we call work.
It is a choice, how you spend your time. Not always a good choice, of course, but a choice. Those who are an exception to this rule always have it the worst, for they are incapable of even having access to the choice to die rather than suffer.
This new year, this 2016, be mindful of time. Use it well. Trade it for happiness and betterment whenever possible.
