Here’s to the Other Reasons.

They’re the reasons you wake up every morning:

not your alarm clock,

the other reasons.

The things

that pull at your

heartstrings

and

guide you into places

still unknown.

The feelings

in your stomach

when you

just know.

The thoughts

about why we are here

and

what matters.

The teardrops

falling

that remind us

of the magical

fragility of each

moment.

All of these

other reasons

we wake up

every day.

Not the title,

the job,

the masks…

the other reasons.

Really breathing

and being overcome

with aliveness.

Feeling until

something breaks

and there is

light

beneath the darkness.

Seeing the stories

of our lives

from new perspectives.

Being reminded

again

of our fascinating,

confusing,

magical,

complexities.

All of these other reasons

we sometimes forget

when we get lost

in time.
