I believe people shouldn’t take life for granted, and should live their life to the fullest. So many people look at themselves at point out all of their flaws. People should realize that each and every one of us has flaws. However, these flaws make up who we are today. Also, we should all not dwell on each particular flaw. We should ask ourselves each everyday all the possibilities we have to live a great life. I believe that people should realize their certain talents and skills. I believe we shouldn’t take life for granted; your life can drastically change at any second. Carpe Diem, “seize the day”. This means every day you should be thankful you woke up this morning, and realize life is a gift that you should cherish.
