"Up and Up"

(by Relient K)

"Yesterday was not quite what it could've been
As were most of all the days before
But I swear today, with every breath I'm breathing in
I'll be trying to make it so much more

'Cause it seems I get so hung up on
The history of what's gone wrong
That the hope of a new day is sometimes hard to see
But I'm finally catching on to it
Yeah, the past is just a conduit
And the light, there at the end, is where I'll be

Chorus:
'Cause I'm on the up and up
I'm on the up and up
And I haven't given up
Given up on what I know I'm capable of
Yeah, I'm on the up and up
Yeah, there's nothing left to prove
'Cause I'm just trying to be a better version of me for You
A better version of me for You

To be prosperous would not require much of me
You see, contentment is the one thing it entails
To be content with where I am and getting where I need to be
And moving past the past where I have failed

But I'm finally catching on to it
Yeah, the past is just a conduit
And the light, there at the end, is where I'll be

Chorus

You never cease to supply
Me with what I need for a good life
So when I'm down, I'll hold my head up high
'Cause You're the reason why, yeah, You're why

Chorus..."

I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm doing well. I know I've been a bit gloomy in the past. But right now, I'm good. My circumstances haven't really changed, but I have a goal (saving for a new house!), & I'm planning for the future. A future with my husband. Over the past 10 months, I haven't done much of that. But I am right now, and it feels good!

I am excited for your new house goal. We need to be saving more just for all the renovations we are making! This is off topic, but my brother is currently playing bass for a band called Seabird (they toured with Relient K that is what made me think of it). They are playing at Cornerstone this week and I think they are playing with Family Force 5 after that.
