SIXTEEN: Nail varnish

This reason needs no elaborating on. I mean, come on, nail varnish. You all must know just how much of a reason that is. Like, you can put on sparkly black, or pale pink, deep blue, or shimmery yellow. Nail varnish. Reason sixteen.

THIRTEEN: Gift giving

I don’t know about you, but I love buying things for other people. Or making things for other people. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, it’s the thought that counts. I love showing others that I care about them. I usually forget to give them what I bought, although they usually know there’s something I have for them. Though sometimes I remember. As I said, it’s the thought that counts. And yeah, I think that’s a reason to live. Continue reading “THIRTEEN: Gift giving”

TWELVE: Your smile

A smile.

We underestimate the power we hold in our hands. I underestimate the power I hold in my hands. Have I ever thought about a smile. The difference that a smile makes in the world. There are so many anecdotes that you come across when people share how they were planning their end, when someone smiled at them, and they decided to try just for another day, and are here to tell the tale? That’s the power we hold in our hands. Continue reading “TWELVE: Your smile”

SEVEN: People who believe in me

I’m grateful for the people in my life who believe in me. I’m thinking of 2 people in particular, who although they’re not part of my ‘real’ life, but rather part of my ‘virtual’ life, they really believe in me. There are more people part of my virtual life who do, but it’s different, as those people, to me they’re just virtual, these people aren’t. And, they believe in me. I’m not sure why they do. When I tell them I’ve messed up, they tell me it’s okay. When I say I don’t think I’ll ever get there, they promise me I will. Continue reading “SEVEN: People who believe in me”

SIX: You’ll never know what could have been.


Today seems – ARGH. Eventually got to sleep last night, my head was in a messy place. This morning it’s as much of a mess. Oh well. Onto reason six. It doesn’t come to mind automatically….. It would be pretty awesome if I had a list of reasons in my head to just pick and choose from. Well, I don’t. That’s really why I want to do this…. To find those reasons. To focus on them. Instead of on the question that so often overtakes everything – Why live? Why….?

FOUR: Chart a path

Hey y’all

So I’m grateful to be writing this. I need the distraction from my head at the moment. Focusing on why I want to be here is probably a good idea.
This is a continuation of the previous posts – show it’s possible and be the link in the chain. I want to find something I wrote and post it, it kind of defines what I mean. In short, by doing the impossible, by being the link in the chain, it’s creating a path for others to follow, that others can see how to do it.
I went on a walk recently.

TWO: Prove it’s possible

So for reason two. Which isn’t my reason number two. I’m not rating or posting them in order of which are my main reasons, but, which come to mind first. Going to try break these up into separate posts and not get them all mixed up into one. For they’re all so similar.

I want to prove to others that it’s possible. I want to show the world that they can do it. You know how you, or maybe it’s always me, think something is impossible, but really, nothing is impossible, and if we don’t try, we’ll never know….

I’ve always loved this quote
