I find that being better than I was the day before is a good source of motivation when I wake up. I try to right all the wrongs I have made the day before or try not to do it again. I think that the thought that I can make this day better than the last is what keeps me going. Having a plan or a general idea of what I want to accomplish for the day and who I look forward to talking to also motivate me to keep on moving.

What drives me and pushes me is thinking about a future where i'm truly happy and content with the people and surroundings around me. I live in a small town so everyday i imagine myself somewhere with beautiful souls everywhere and having endless freedom.

what really drives me to do better is my family but mostly my mother. I want to give her everything she's ever wanted and I want her to be happy. that's what makes me strive better and also proving people wrong that I can be more than they think I can be. I know it sounds like a bad thing to use as a motivation to push forward but I am just being honest. And sometimes I do it for myself because I know I deserve better. Making people laugh and smile is something that truly brings me happiness because its something so rare that you don't see often enough. its magical in a way. sorry I wrote such a long paragraph lol

What drives me to continue is the idea of having another beautiful day, feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin, admiring the blue sky, and observing flowers with vibrant colors. I've had close calls, near-death experiences, and worse-than-bad days in the past, and simply knowing that this day only brings me farther from those memories makes me happy to be alive and going! :)

My future is mine. If I work hard enough, and keep changing for the better, I know that I have a bright path ahead of me, and that's motivation to keep myself going every day.

Knowing that if I just make it through a couple more months, I will finally be home schooled. After that, graduation. Then I will be able to live my own life without what others think and I can be my own person. Oh, and my marching band family.

My education, I'm in college and knowing soon I'll have my education makes me want to work hard and get out of bed. Also my boyfriend is a huge reason too, he helps me alot

Every morning I wake up to a good morning text from my girlfriend. She gives me hope for my future and I want to make myself be the best I can for her. She motivates me to do things because I know that in the end we will be together and I want to make her future the best it can be, and to do that I have to do it for myself.

i think the thought that the right now, we are in a technological world and honestly I want to see how far we go, and all the good music I'll hear as well as the idea of falling in love, or atleast finding someone, that and finding myself as well, every day I get closer to being what I want-oh and knowledge! The pursuit of knowledge ;)

honestly just being alive on that day drives me to continue because I couldve just died while I was sleeping or something but im still alive meaning there are more things for me to do in this world

What drives me is knowing that I have my family supporting me and caring about me no matter what happens and that tomorrow is a new day. There are a lot of things in life to live for. I realize that life isn't an easy journey but with the right people in your life and having faith will keep you strong.

Well..Sometimes there isn't anything that drives me to continue. I just have to push myself and go through with life even if I really don't want to, but if I had to have a reason it would be my mom. We may fight sometimes. But she's my mom and she's always been there for me. She's the one that got me help when I really needed it. The one who made me start therapy two years ago, which led to all my diagnosis' which led me to be on medication, and the meds have brought me a long way. So even though we have our differences its always been my mom who has kept me going. I always think "How would my mom feel if I did this to myself?" And that is what keeps me from doing some really stupid sh*t sometimes. So I am very thankful that I have my mom in my life to look out for me. It would be very hard to live without her here to pick up after my mistakes and help me through my break downs.

I find that waking up in the morning is tough, that moment when you open your eyes and realize that you have to live another day, it's extremely tough. But then I remember that I have people that look forward to seeing me. And I have writing. And I have my animals and my art. And I have dreams. That's what keeps me going.
