What are your reasons to live?

I thought I would start a thread where people can share their reasons to live. It could something big like family or something as simple as the taste of your favorite food. We could come here and see what other people share.
Here's a few reasons I'm thinking of:

my niece
chinese food
my favorite artist is planning a North American tour next year

I'll probably come back and share more :)

I love whenever I meet kpop lovers,I am not really into kpop,I discovered kpop a year ago and kinda fell out after I started loving EXO,because they take all the time and I stopped following other groups.But I like twice and love Like ooh ahh especially. I know some of Hyunas sings,I loved her latest mini.

at this point my only reason to live is because I promised the Universe I wouldn't manipulate karma. If the Creator (whomever that is) has seen fit to leave me here, there must be a reason and like Viktor Frankyl did in the concentration camp, he decided to let karma direct his path and not try to escape an intolerable situation. So far I have (obviously) kept that promise but its very difficult to keep getting up in the morning and having ground hogs day over and over and over again. I see no point. But my promise.

Ooh Ahh is actually my favorite Twice song.

@MynameisPain Your post popped up at the best time. Especially with the subject of a Creator and not manipulating karma. My niece was supposed to take a trip soon. I was actually considering ending it while she was gone so she wouldn't see me. Today her trip got cancelled. I began wondering if a higher being wanted her trip to be cancelled so I wouldn't do it. And your post just popped up while I was typing. I wonder if that's some kind of sign. If it isn't it's a pretty big coincidence.

I wanted to add another reason:
If I were gone I wouldn't be able to speak to my best friend. And according to her, if I died it would be the worst thing that happened to her.

ahh JDot, I don't believe anything is a coincidence. Everything happens for a reason and yes I would say the Creator wanted you to see that.
So the message of the day is " Don't manipulate Karma"....
Peace for your day!

Well for one my mother would be completely broken if I died and my sister would be almost alone and devoid of family.
Also, while I personally believe that life doesn't have any intrinsic meaning, it's still worth it to do good, be good, and feel good. I'd rather say to the uncaring universe "I'm here" rather than be unable to talk to it.

Yes... While I was completely down and didn't care about anything.. At least I managed to still recognize the people around me who still cared about things.. And so at least I could spend my energy helping them. One nice thing about life is, however down you are, there is ALWAYS a way to make use of oneself. Always something or someone who would benefit from your help.

The realization that life (everybody's life) is both joy and pain. The joy and pain take turns. So enjoy the joy when you have it, and tolerate the pain when there's pain. Joy and pain take turns. In other words, life is cyclical.

I guess my only reason is that I don't want to cause pain to my best friend. I can see he cares but problem is... his words just go right through me for some reason. He can tell me repeatedly that it's going to be okay but I just don't see it.

Why do you think that is? What do you think if he would do differently, would help you more? maybe you should tell him that. it sounds like both of you really care for each other, that is a very good thing for you, I feel like. I feel like good communication is the key to any relationship.
