100 reasons to be alive

Saturday, February 20

By Julia Sbarretti

For most of us the past year and a half has been incredibly tough due to the pandemic and all of the bad stuff it has brought with it, but for others the hardships have been going on for longer. Let’s face it, life sucks most of the time and you can sugarcoat it how you like but at one point you’ll have to face the hard truth of life. Lately i have been asking myself if all this pain and disappointment will make sense in the end. A long, dark tunnel is ahead of us all but instead of telling you how long and scary that tunnel is, i want to be the light you see at the end. It might be as big as stadium lights or as small as a match’s flame but trust me, it’s there. It’s 2021 and this year i’ve decided i want to focus on why life is worth living. so, without any further ado, i hereby present to you my (and hopefully after reading, yours too) 100 reasons to be alive:
