What Keeps Me Going In Life

Even when there are clouds in the sky, the sun will still shine :)
Lately I have been feeling very down. Not wanting to go too deep into this, I would rather just associate it with the fact that I am stressed because I am writing my final exams and anything bad that happens to me has the ability to push my "feeling down" button. It is pretty much as if I am hanging on the edge of a mountain.

So much has happened to me in the past month: my friend's death; friendship deceit; exams, that I even wonder how I have been able to handle it all, the way I have been. Actually I do know how, with God's help. But you know how humans usually live under the pretense that they can't go through difficult times "by themselves" and they always need a human anchor in life. I have actually been keeping up pretty well, and all of this alone (in the world). But deep down inside I know that the there was more than extra help, from a higher power which I call the help from God.
I see this because everyday I can wake up with a smile on my face and I can say that better days will come. I might cry, I might sometimes feel empty, but I know that there are a lot of reasons for me not to give up on anything because all this hope and faith I have in God keeps me going and helps me overcome all the bad things I go through in life. I mean, no one said this would be easy and life itself is a challenge. So all I can do is pray and hang in there because I know that at the end of the day, everything will be alright as long as I put my faith and trust in God.

No words can express how much I love you 

I look all around me, nature, my awesome family and my fantastic friends... Why should I even believe that life isn't worth living when everyday I have a reason to smile. They might not always be around me, but I believe that I am in their thoughts and hearts just the same way that they are in mine. So i'm going to keep smiling and being joyous, because I have all the reasons to do that. I will get back up, I will study for my exams, because one hell of a holiday is approaching me and my favourite month of the year (my birthday month) is just around the corner. So NOTHING will bring me down! :)
