To What?

Something. Anything. There's something inside of me that refuses to let go. I can only hope that it never does let go... because life really is beautiful. It's an absolute *****, aye, but still... it is beautiful. And I know there's something out there, somewhere, that is giving me a reason to continue holding on.

No, that makes perfect sense to me. It's not something that I think about all of the time, but when I'm really down and considering giving up, it enters my head. I agree with you completely. We do have a purpose. We may never even realize what it is, but we all do nonetheless.

Here is what keeps me going: it may sound silly to you, but it is an Insatiable curiosity about “What happens next.” See, if I stop now, I’ll never know how things turned out. I firmly believe that we are here for a purpose. That moment might come 10 years from now….you grab someone’s coat to keep them from falling into traffic or whatever….but you are here for a reason and there is going to be a moment in life where it is you or nobody and it’s up to you to be there and step up to do what you were always meant to do.
