Something has changed within me
Something is not the same,
I'm through with playing by the rules of someone else's game...
Those are the opening lines to the song "Defying Gravity," and lately they have been striking a chord with me (no pun intended).
I've always heard by the time you're 30 you're a lot more comfortable with yourself and you know what you want. On the cusp of 29 I'm thinking more and more that's true.
I've started pursuing things outside my regular comfort zone. I've pushed myself to write more - and to write what I want, instead of just what people expect. I've learned what I value and what's important and in the grand scheme of things what matters.
Some things I cannot change, but 'till I try I'll never know...
I'm being my own game-changer. I'm moving and shaking. And I hope to have lots more on this later. But in the meantime, in case you haven't heard this song, or even worse haven't heard Idina Menzel perform it, here you go. (You're welcome).
