13 Reasons Why Not (Original Song)

[twocol_one]A smile…
The sand on your feet…
The sun on your face…
A song…
The taste of chocolate…
That friend who was there…[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last][/twocol_one_last] [divider]

These “small” things are the stuff of life. They are the heartbeat of our world. They feed us emotionally and bring warmth when the cold starts to creep inwards.

13 Reasons Why arrived on our screens earlier this year telling the fictional story of why someone felt they could no longer live. GoZen! would like to tell a different story: 13 Reasons Why Not. Let’s focus on 13 things which bring light into our lives and keep our flames burning.

These moments can be small, personal, maybe insignificant from an outsider’s point of view. When I asked a friend for hers yesterday, she replied “my dog’s nose – simple.” We’d love to hear YOUR reasons. Please share them below and we’ll use them to make an inspiring piece of online art celebrating both our vulnerability and our strength. And to help inspire YOU, here is a song written and performed by our very own Chloe Leland. Listen to it above and share your reasons in the comments!
