Carpe diem the golden chance

Carpe Diem: The Golden Chance

Carpe Diem, is the expression that means seize the day, means that one

should take advantage of every minute of this life. Many people do not succeed

because they are scared about life. It is very difficult to accomplish anything

in this life if they do not risk themselves or do not do anything to get what

they want. One should enjoy this life in a responsible way. My particular carpe

diem philosophy is do the right thing at the right moment.

My parents have taught me that without effort there is no reward, and

that the duties are due before distraction. The logical order, is not put the

cart before the horse. It does not mean that one is wasting his or her life

because he or she is studying like crazy and during six years the only thing

that he or she is doing is memorizing information. The reward will come sooner

or later when one gets a marvelous job and is earning money like crazy.

Now I am living and experiencing my own carpe diem philosophy. Now I am

experiencing my golden chance of having a great education, and I have to make

good use of the experience. The opportunity to come United States to study is

very limited for Spanish students. It is limited because even when the country

is not a third world country, Spain is a country not very rich, and for a person

like my it would be not very intelligent to reject this great chance. Here I am

trying to learn as much as possible about American life style, culture, language

and people. My chance was supposed to expire in one year but now I have the

opportunity to not only finish high school in United States, but also continue

my college years here.

My Carpe Diem tells me that I can not waste my time, because I have

already lost too much precious time in my life. I have to be resolute to succeed,

to give my best, to enjoy my education and the teachers that are here to help me,

and to give my best. Carpe Diem tells me that working hard , having the own

ideas, fighting for my ideals, and by opening my mind to the work of others, and

the ideas and ideals of other people I am taking advantage of my golden chance.

Another reason I seize my days here is because I feel that my parents are

putting so much effort and money in my education, it would not be fair to them

if I do not put the same amount of effort and care in my education.

Carpe Diem means "seize the day", but for me it has another deeper

meaning. The meaning for me is that one should take advantage of opportunities

with wisdom and care, analyzing each move we make, not making precipitous

decisions and not thinking only about the effects that will cause us that

decisions, but also how decisions will decisions affect the ones who surround us.

Opportunities only knock once at your door. Be there and do not slam your door,

or be afraid to open it. Seize the chance!
