When you feel like life is pointless or too rough to handle, remember that there are moments to look forward to in the future. While there are sure to be great things in your life, there are also small things to stick around to see. You wouldn't want to miss out on the fun, now would you? Here are some moments to look forward to in life:
1. Hearing New Music
Your favorite band might come out with a new album filled with songs you love. Or there could be a band forming this very instant that will create music that you'll put on repeat. If music isn't really your thing, then there are still books and movies and TV shows waiting for you. One of the moments to look forward to is when you see or hear something that will bring you happiness, even if it's temporary.
2. Petting Adorable Animals
Think of all the puppies you're bound to pet this year. I bet you'll even see some cute kitties as well. One of the greatest things about life is that we're surrounded by beautiful creatures that will put smiles on our faces. Don't you want to stick around to whale watch and play fetch with some pups?
3. Getting Hugs and Kisses
Don't you love a little bit of affection? If you stick around, you'll get kisses from your current or future mate, and hugs from your new and old friends. It's nice to cuddle, so why would you want to miss out on snuggling up next to someone you love? It'll feel amazing once it happens.
4. Eating Fabulous Food
New snacks are coming out every single day. Even if you're a foodie, there are plenty of things that your taste buds haven't tried yet. You could find something delicious that you'll look forward to eating all the time. So go visit that new restaurant down the block, or finally try the recipe that your grandmother keeps urging you to make.
5. Telling Jolly Good Jokes
Once in a while you'll stumble across a web page with a hysterical photo or hear your friend tell an amazing joke. Or maybe you'll be the one telling a great pun that causes everyone in the room to burst out in laughter. There's nothing better than the sound of giggles.
6. Seeing the World
Maybe you'll get to travel to a part of the world you've never seen before, but even if you don't, the nature in your backyard is equally as impressive. Look at the stars at night, and the sunset in the evening. Look at the trees and flowers and grass. When you really open your eyes, it's amazing what you'll find.
7. Making Someone's Day
Don't you love when you compliment someone's shoes, and they say that you made their day? It's wonderful to know that you can make a difference in the world, no matter how small. Compliment your friends, or even strangers, and make sure you keep in touch with the people you love the most. You'll both be thankful that you did.
No matter how upset you are with your current situation, things will change. There are big reasons why you should stick around, but these small reasons are hopefully helpful as well. What else are you looking forward to doing in the future?
