You may read this amongst your loved ones, with positives vibes of gratitute. Or, you may read this in painful solitude, with hopelessness and despair. But the truth is- you are reading this for a reason, and it is not a mere coincidence. So let us continue.

You may be on a quest for a purpose, a greater meaning or point to life. Or you may yearn for a ray of light to stop to you from calling it the end. There is somewhere within you a reason to Live!

True, the reason may be hazy or illdefined, or you may feel it no longer exists. Or perhaps despite a great struggle the weight is still not lightened. But there is still somewhere within you a reason to live!

Perhaps you have utilised all your strength to fight the battle with the demons which haunt you. The worries of health, the pressure for wealth, the security of the future, the loss of a loved being- and the trepidation of the unknown. But nonetheless- rest assured that somewhere within you is a reason to live!

Uncertainty and fear, distance from your close relations, or perhaps the recent events in all realms hint your mind that all is purposeless. Or you may lose your spark for life as no one seems to notice you. Even then, know that you found this written by someone who felt your presence and so rejoice as even then- within you is a reason to live!

Just close your eyes, and find a reason- just any reason for your existence. There may be many: the love of children, the care of parents, the joy of living, the love of life. Or perhaps you just have one- to water the rose in the garden, to say sorry, to embrace a little more. Whatever the reason, whichever day- just know that there is always a reason to live…everywhere!
