defying gravity.

kiss me goodbye, i’m defying gravity, and you can’t pull me down.

i can’t stop listening to the wicked soundtrack. i must see that show! it’s in durham right now and i wish i could go, but alas, i have exams to be concerned with at the moment. maybe if i’m lucky i can convince my mom to see it with me in charlotte when it comes this summer.

speaking of shows, there are some really great ones coming to charlotte in the next few months — wicked, mary poppins, jersey boys, dreamgirls — and i know there are more! i really love seeing shows. i want to be in so many shows. it’s so hard having a heart for something that you can’t do on the level which you want to do it.

i’ve been thinking so much lately. maybe too much. probably too much.

i keep assessing and reassessing what’s going on in my life right now and i’ve decided that i am utterly content with where i am, and you know what?

it’s nice.

it’s nice being content and happy with everything all at once. it’s really not that bad being single (i’m getting back into the swing of it and it feels good), and it’s not that bad to be busy, and it’s not that bad to have fun instead of study all the time, and it’s not that bad to have a struggle every now and then.

sometimes it’s good to just step back and look at everything in perspective. i think we all need to do that on a more regular basis — at least i know i do.

ephesians 5:15-17

“be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the LORD’s will is.”

i think there’s a kind of beauty in personal independence while still depending on God (if that makes sense). i’ve been called to make the most of every opportunity, and that’s what i plan to do regardless of any circumstance that comes my way.

and if i’m flying solo, at least i’m flying free.
