What is it that keeps you going?

    What is it that keeps you going?

    And by that I mean when you have no knowing, if things will ever get better...what is it that keeps you from being severed?

    I would say faith and confidence. If you have either faith of confidence, you can basically conquer the world.

    Actually music and my boyfriend. They both calm me down when I cry, when I'm angered or annoyed. They keep my emotions down and give me hope that I'll live through the pain...
    They give me guidance and keep me living, and another outlet of mine is writing, poetry of course.
    (: And that's who keeps me from being severed.

    My faith and my family.  Those two things are tantamount to my survival in this sometimes harsh world.  They give me great peace and joy.

    A terrific help has been the skills I have learned by adopting the personal philosophy of living in the present moment.  That helps to remind me that we are always living in the present moment and the future is to be dealt with as it comes.  A trap that I avoid, by not projecting my thoughts into the future is that feeling of impending doom that goes with any attempt to fully predict upcoming events.

    Life runs in cycles and it's the bad times that really makes you appreciate it when things get better. Your true friends and family will always be there to stick by you but there are so few true friends that we sometimes feel alone and just when you don't think you can take it, they start getting better. Hang in there and good luck.

    There's an unseen motivation in life for me, this makes me fired up at attempting to achieve all my dreams.  Money isn't it, sex isn't it and pure fulfillment of desire isn't it for me. 

    Love is this key to unlocking my motive force, so that my life could be lived out with a driven passion to make things work.  My wife is at the center of this passionate pursuit of happiness, and soon my children what have yet to come into this world will make all the difference. 

    Whatever stands in my way of achieving this, will only be mere obstacles to topple over one by one, and that includes the lack there of certain things, not having enough fuel, or an specified amount of monetary value to sustain such a powerful presence as having a family. 

    "If I'm breathing I'm achieving, point Blank, there is no other option for me."
