50 Reasons to Live [Guest Post]

Good morning! 

I really like having these posts go up in the morning, I feel like I had such a productive day. Today, I want to introduce you to Cassi. Well, you should know her because she hosts 5 Little Grins with me every Monday! Cassie is an amazingly strong human being who follows her passions...that's right she's a Warrior Queen!! She's here to share one of her life stories, and to give us all a list of 50 reasons to live...a list that we all need some days. 

 The World From the View of 2 Teenage Girls Hey!  I'm Cassi!  I blog over at The World From the View of Two Teenage Girls, with my cousin Katie. We blog about our lives, our goals, and we review some stuff too.  Raewyn is kind enough to let me take over her blog for today. :)

December 21st, 2013 I started self harming.  It's not something I'm proud of.  It's not something I've overcome.  I'm working very hard to get past it, but it is extremely hard.  I''d always heard of it being addicting, but I thought they were crazy.  I mean, how can you get addicted to cutting your body open?  But you can and I did.  To anyone who is in that place or anywhere they need it, here are 50 reasons you shouldn't end your life today, or ever.

  1. You're needed
  2. Sleep
  3. Food
  4. Books you can't put down
  5. Snow days

  6. When your favorite song comes on the radio
  7. Bucket lists to complete
  8. 7 billion people you haven't met
  9. Beautiful places to see

  10. Rules to break

  17. New shoes
  18. Hot tea
  19. New episodes of your favorite show
  20. Being awake when everyone else is still asleep
  21. Fireworks
  22. Hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows
  23. Singing to songs you don't know the words to
  24. Kitties!
  25. Waking up and still remembering a really amazing dream
  26. Seeing your favorite band live
  27. We still might get another Harry Potter book
  28. Getting to eat your favorite food
  29. Campfires
  30. Candles that smell nice
  31. Getting to wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt
  32. Conversations at 2 am
  33. Traveling the world
  34. The sound of crunching leaves
  35. Cute children
  36. Watermelon
  37. Getting to go to your best friend's wedding
  38. Hitting snooze just one more time
  39. Your favorite artist/ band releasing a new album
  40. Going to the pool on a hot day
  41. Laughing so hard you cry
  42. Memorizing that verse of a rap song and owning the next time the song come on the radio
  43. The butterfly project
  44. Putting on clothes that just came out of the dryer
  45. Giving presents to people you care about
  46. Finding out about a talent you didn't know you had
  47. The cold side of your pillow
  48. Cake

  49. I love you and so do so many other people
