9 Moments To Live For, No Matter How Dark Life Gets

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

Meeting your future spouse

Do I even need to say more?

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.

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.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
