I just find it fascinating--living your own life as yourself is a personalized, unique experience that no other person can have. Through the good and bad, there's always something to look forward to or work hard at. There's always something you want to do and try, and all it takes is an open mind to "failures" and mistakes and the willingness to take the actual initiative to start on those things. Of course, it is necessary to keep putting in time and effort to whatever you get yourself involved with, but that's the whole point of having started it, no? Humans are busy creatures; we have a lot going on physically as well as internally--for example, we have a lot going on in terms of emotions. How one deals with the negatives and positives of their emotional lives is of course, up to each person, but the nuances of experiencing such diverse emotions personally makes me feel alive and just reenforces that I am human, and that it's all a part of the human package, so to speak. That is why, despite painful events or distressing feelings that life can sometimes throw at us, I'm always up for seeing another day, just to see how the story continues, I suppose? Have a great day! -Ravvi

The knowledge and the hope that everything happens for a reason. The knowledge that every tear, every sob, is going to be worth it in the end. And the knowledge that someone - God - is always watching over me and even when I feel isolated and lonely, He's always there, holding my hand and urging me to keep going, to keep pushing forward, and that He is going to be there and that someday, things are going to get better.The belief that every creature in this earth has good in them, and they just need to find it. The belief that everything happens for a bigger purpose, whatever that may be. The belief that happiness can be found in every corner, we just need to keep our minds open :D""Don't hide. Live.

For me, the excitement of just seeing what lies ahead. I've kind of been put through the ringer lately. My ex-boyfriend cheated on me, and we had been dating over two years. I was in a severe car accident and totalled my car and hurt myself badly. My little sister had to have her bone marrow tested because they thought she had luekemia, and I had to quit my job as I had no way to get there after the accident and I no longer lived in that town with my boyfriend. But through it all, the one thing that gave/gives me hope is knowing that one day in the future I'll look back at all of that and appreciate everything I'll be so lucky to have at that point. I'm more determined now than ever to be close to my family, get back to school and finish my degree, and find someone worth trusting. And I can't wait to get there. :D

What keeps me going are the people I love. I can't imagine leaving my young siblings. The future also keeps me going, life isn't where I imagine it would be 10 years ago, but the direction it has lead me is good too, I can't wait to see where it leads.

In all honesty, it's because I find life entertaining.

I keep living just because of life itself. I realized life is beautiful and I don't want to waste a second of it.

What keeps me going is the thought that there is someone out there that will hopefully love me. Not that I don't get love all the time from my family. Just that a special person out there.

My family, my dog, the thought of all the books I'll be able to read in the future, playing music, climbing trees, the possibility of learning to paraglide or scuba dive. And when life sucks, I feel God's love and know that I can get through it.

I think about my family and friends. How they would feel if I were no longer here anymore. Mainly my little sister keeps me going. Just the thought of her looking up to me make me believe that there must be something good in me.
