I'm counting on you

But where are the heroes,
Where are the dreams that I had
When I was young?
Am I hoping in vain, just to think
She could change anything?
Well, I'm counting on you.

My generation is losing its way
We don't know what we're leaving for you.

There is so much to know,
There is so far to go,
But you are not alone
When this is your world and 
I'm counting on you.

-I'm Counting on You by Chris de Burgh-

This song. Just this song. Especially this recording of it. Do yourself a favor and just listen to it.

Go ahead. I'll wait.


Did you listen?

Now you know what I've been hearing for the last 20 minutes.

This song just says it all.

I'm growing up. I'll be 18 in a couple of weeks. I'm applying to colleges. There is so much that I don't know, so far I have to go.

I keep fluctuating between being excited to head out and start a new journey and feeling scared to death of that exact thing. I know this is normal, but that doesn't stop this constant pendulum of dread and anticipation. As high school stresses and pressures continue to mount, I just need to remember that God is in control and this will soon be over.

There is so much to know,
There is so far to go,
But you are not alone.
I'm counting on you.
