Slice of Life Challenge: I Won't Give Up

Today I wanted to share with you one of the most beautiful songs I have heard in a long time. I think I have mentioned earlier that I am a senior in college and will be graduating in May. Exciting, right? I know I am, but I still have my reservations. Mainly because I still haven't found the place where I am to begin my next chapter, which worries me. But I know that I am not the only one going through this, let alone know that this is not the worst thing that could be happening to me.

So I dedicate this post to all those who are facing a new chapter and/or going through a rough patch in life. If you are reading this know that "I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough. I'm giving you all my love. I'm still looking up."  You have all the support I can give (see poll "WHAT DO YOU NEED?" to the right) and I hope that it reaches you, where ever you may be, soon. All I ask in return is that you share that love and support with someone else in need.

With that I leave you with "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz (highlighted below are my favorite lyrics of the song):


When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
