Life does not seem as stark as it actually is when there is something to look forward to. It need not be a lover as most people envision, it can be a as simple as quality time with family, friends, and pets, or a cherished activity or even a hoped-for dream.

The minute we lose something to look forward to, we are at the precipice of a downward spiral which we might or might not recover from so we must keep ourselves preoccupied with activities we enjoy and people we value in the most positive way because in this manner, every passing day becomes filled with meaning.

What more can we ask for but a full, meaningful, well-lived life?
