WICKED the Musical takes my breath away.

I LOVE the performing arts, a trait I received from my mother.  She taught me to appreciate live theatre.  I've been fortunate enough to see many Broadway shows.  Wicked the Musical is one of my favorites.  Defying Gravity lyrics inspire me.  Goosebumps appear EVERY time I listen to this song.

A fraction of the Defying Gravity lyrics that inspire me.

Composed by Stephen Schwartz

But I don't want it, I can't want it anymore
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone elses game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down

I'm through accepting limits
'Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
"Everyone deserves the chance to fly!"

And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who ground me
Take a message back from me

Tell them how I'm defying gravity!
I'm flying high defying gravity!
And soon I'll match them in renown
And nobody in all of Oz
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!

My children inspire me each and everyday.

They teach me endless lessons about life, creativity and the power of being present.  It took me longer than most to realize no two paths are alike.  I wouldn't be on this personal journey without them.

I want them to say, "If mom reaches for the stars, I know I can too."
