The Real Reason Why.

There is always a because.

  • Because you feel like it.
  • Because you are angry.
  • Because you have a story to tell.
  • Because you are scared.
  • Because you care.
  • Because you want to be heard.
  • Because you are in pain.
  • Because you are embarrassed not to.
  • Because you think you owe it to them.
  • Because you didn’t think you could.
  • Because you believe.
  • Because you want more for yourself.
  • Because you think it’s worth it.
  • Because you want to find out.

Most of the time, you are the only one who knows what that because really is.

There are reasons you share with others and reasons you keep close inside.

Regardless of what you tell others, make sure you know what really moves you.

Because you’re capable of being amazing.

And not figuring that out would be the worst mistake of your life.
