I’m through accepting limits
‘Cause someone says they’re so.
Some things I cannot change
But ’til I try I’ll never know.
I don’t really know yet how this blog is going to take shape. I’m not sure what I want to say. I just know I want to say something.
But before I could even think about what to write for my first post, I had the challenge of finding a suitable title for my blog. Eventually I found inspiration in my favourite musical, Wicked – the lyrics above are from the song “Defying Gravity” sung by Elphaba and go a long way to explaining why I felt the need to start blogging.
So … I intend for this blog to be about the things I cannot change, and how I can learn to accept them. And for it to be about how I can try to change the things within my control. But mostly I intend for it to be about refusing to accept limitations that others have imposed – on me, on my family, on the world around me.
I don’t know if anyone will read this, and I don’t know if what I write will be worth reading. But, in the words of Elphaba: “It’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap!”
