Whether you want to admit it or not, life can sometimes can really dark. You have days where you wonder if anything will ever get better or if it is even worth trying anymore. I hope you can remind yourself that it is.

If you can't, here are some moments worth living for.

1. The day you meet your maid-of-honor/best man

There's nothing quite like meeting your partner in crime, your other half — the person who gets you more than anybody else does. They become one of the most influential people in your life, and with them by your side, you feel as though you can get through anything.

2. Traveling to a place that takes your breath away

Maybe it is standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or looking out from the top of the mountains in Colorado. Life is full of so many beautiful sights, and there are so many you've yet to see.

These moments really make you feel as if the world is so much bigger than you and your problems.

3. The times you laugh so hard your stomach hurts

Whoever said that "laughter is the best medicine" wasn't messing around. Absorb these times.

Truly, nothing feels the same as this.

4. The holidays

You never want to miss out on the holidays, especially when it comes to the warm feeling you get seeing fully decorated houses and sparkling Christmas lights.

During this time, everyone is a little kinder, everything tastes a little sweeter and everything feels a little more magical.

5. Eating crazy good food

You know that feeling when you were really craving a specific kind of food, and now you're about to eat it? Ohhh baby..

6. Watching a movie or reading a book that makes you cry

This sounds sad, but you know a movie or book is exceptionally good when it makes you cry. And experiencing things that touch your heart is a monumental part of life.

7. Meeting your future spouse

Do I even need to say more?

8. Doing something that scares you

This is the best feeling ever, though the joy usually comes afterward. It's always incredibly rewarding to do something you're afraid of, and it always brings the best memories with it.

9. Getting over something you never thought you would

This is another rewarding feeling. I know the process of it sucks, but getting yourself through something you never thought you would gives you so much pride and dignity. You completely change afterward.

Whether you have or have not experienced these things yet, they are all incredible moments to live for. Life is full of monumental and sweet moments you don't want to miss out on. When life sucks, remember that.

This is a short piece I wrote for my creative writing class over Thanksgiving break, and while looking it over, I discovered how much personal truth it held and how anyone can apply these goals to their own life. Instead of declaring that you'll start going to the gym or stop smoking, it's easier to break down your goals into smaller steps, and I hope you can find something that resonates with you in this writing.

Live more.

Consume more. Travel as much as you can. Read as many books as you can get your hands on. Watch as many shows and films become available to you. Consume art to learn more about the world.

Breathe more. Flush those worries out. Don't let deadlines pile up. Don't let the stress and fear prevent you from living.

Cook more. Don't rely on take-out. Stir up new things, and try new recipes. You might find something you adore.

Learn more. Take the classes you don't think you'll like, and let them open your mind to new experiences.

Speak more. Reach out to friends and family first. Make the effort to include them in your life. Don't brush them off for temporary things.

Practice more. Work on that hobby. Familiarize yourself with your second language. Don't be satisfied with the bare minimum.

Study more. Don't let procrastination become your closest friend. Don't let academics fall behind. You're putting too much on the line to let it all go to waste.

Imagine more. Don't let rationality keep you stuck to earth. Let your fleeting dreams and thoughts exist, and work until they become reality.

Socialize more. Don't let yourself remain trapped in the familiar. Put yourself out there. Meet new people. Have new experiences.

Love more. Don't let fear of rejection or betrayal stifle your affection. Your heart can bear it.
