always defying gravity

Jackie Burns sang a wonderful mashup of Wicked, Frozen, and If/Then during the Broadway Princess Party at 54 Below, which included “Let It Go,” “Defying Gravity,” and “Always Starting Over.” (Thank you to whoever took this video!)

Dear Raelyn,
it took me years to love and appreciate you for the things i cannot change. i would spend hours on end trying to think of ways to make you into someone you will never be and i’m sorry for that. i’ve learned to accept that your hair will always expand and defy gravity. i’ve learned to accept that your skin will always be born from the earth and kissed by the sun. after all of those years of telling you i hated you because i was too caught up in what everyone else thought of you, i can finally say i love for who you are. this journey has been crazy. up until 3 years ago, i never thought i’d see the day that i could tell you that i love you without forcing myself. you are worthy. you are more than good enough. you are beautiful. you are light. you are radiant. i love you.

Love Always,
Raelyn

Always fearless.
