Mountains summer sunset
If you went to the beach and picked up a grain of sand you would have a start.
That one grain of sand represents the entirety of your time here on earth.
Your time may be long here or short, that does not matter.
Now look at all the grains of sand on that beach.
Next consider all the sand on all the beaches of the world.
All those other grains of sand represent all the time of eternity.
And even if you spent as much time as your life on earth in eternity for each grain of sand, still you would eventually come to the end of all sand.
Then you would need to start all over again; one grain at a time.
And then continue this forever.
