Remembering Why Living Is Worth It

Posted by Kyrie , 12 March 2012 · 34 views

Sometimes I wish I could just disappear (just fade away from existance); because living is too hard, because the emotions are too intense to deal with, because this pain never leaves and it's too much.

But then I remember, remind myself of, all the good things that also come with being alive: love, hope, friendship, hugs, sun sets and rises, the sound of the ocean, the whispering of the wind through the leaves in the trees, the fresh smell just after it rains, making snow angels, the warmth and wonder of riding a horse bareback, all those moments that make you smile when you look back on them.

And I think of all the things I want to do and haven't yet had the chance to: go sky-diving (despite my fear of heights), see the Grand Canyon, go white water rafting, take a road trip across the U.S., go to Disneyland, publish a book, go scuba-diving/see the coral reef, swim with dolphins, spend the night on a beach, dance with someone in the rain, help people.

And I know that deep down, I want to stay, and learn to truly live again.
