Something has changed within me

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).



Happy weekend!

I feel the same way that you do. My 20s were such a growth phase for me and a period where I really figured out who I was. My cousin is a Pysch Doctor and she commented on my post yesterday and said that the frontal lobe of our brain continues to develop in our 20s so it makes sense that it takes the decade of our 20s to figure out who we are. I thought that was a cool explanation for why we seem to 'settle into' who we are in our 20s.

Isn't it amazing that our brains our still developing into our 20s?! How insane...
It is true, after turning 30 I feel more sure of myself and comfortable. I know almost exactly what I want (especially career wise) and just feel more confident overall!

It's such a great song, love it! I think every year we get a little bit closer to really understanding ourselves and being totally comfortable with who we are in this world. My brother always tells me 29-30 was the age he really began to understand himself like never before!

I've heard that song, but not her version. Hers is much, much, much better than the Glee version (duh). Also kind of want her dress!

(Also love that we are both turning 29 this month!)

Great post! I also did not know you and Nora were basically the exact same age until I read her above comment!

I kind of already feel like I figured out who I am and what I want, but I'm sure that will just continue to morph and change as I get older... and wiser! :)
