Being Erica's Quotes

Being Erica rocks

"They say love is friendship set on fire. And if you're lucky enough to find someone you can give yourself to, mind, body and soul. You should hold on, and hope like hell you don't get burned."

They say the greatest mistake is giving up. That true strength lies in the will to keep trying. Keep hoping things will get better. Keep reminding yourself of all you've accomplished. Keep everything in prospective. Keep up the fight. Because at the end of the day, that's what you're left with. The knowledge that you did your best, and you'll wake up tomorrow and try again"

"Feelings. So often we fool ourselves into thinking we can control them. Until, one day we're ambushed. Caught off guard by rage, or jealousy, or love and we're forced to face the truth...The truth is this, you can't control how you feel. Only what you do about it." - Erica

"Our whole lives are a constant battle between what we want and what stands in our way.."

"At the end of the day, it comes down to this. The way we choose to see ourselves, it limits who we can be. Step outside the box, and you might learn something. Because we are more capable then we imagine. Because we all have it in us to do things we've never done before. Because sometimes we can surprise even ourselves.."

"Conflict. It's everywhere you look, it touches everything we do, every relationship we have. Isn't it funny how at there core, all fights are the same. Two people yelling, or accusing or running away. Two people doing anything to avoid telling eachother how they really feel. Just talk when you wanna run. Reveal when... you wanna attack. It's so simple, so obvious. And at the same time, so incredibly hard."

"friendship is born at that moment where one person says to another.."what..you too? I thought I was the only one." - C.S Lewis

"Risks. How we feel about them, says alot about us. Everyday, every moment, we calculate and access, debate and decide. But when you get right down to it. The truth is, that when it comes to risk, the only thing that matters is that you take the ones that are right for you.."

"Concequences. When we ask the question, why can't i..They're right there staring us in the face. The answers we don't wanna hear."

"The choices you make, define who you are. Choices. They’re the building blocks or our lives, they shape our past, present and future. And despite all the mistakes I’ve made, every new day brings with it new choices and their whole new world of possibilities."

"Relationships. They feel so permanent, so solid. So why are we always surprised to find out, that like everything else, they are not immune to change.."

"Learn to be what you are, and learn to resign, with good grace, all that you are not. Henry Frederick Emile"

"Change. Sometimes it sneaks up on you. Sometimes it hits you over the head. And sometimes you turn a corner, only to find you're different in some small way, and the world doesn't look quite like it used to. So, where do I go from here? No idea. And for the first time, I feel like that's a good thing." - Erica

"The heart wants what it wants. It forces us to act when reason dictates otherwise, it tears down walls, breaches boundaries, and for better or worse, it leads us places that the head...would never go" - Erica

Learn to be what you are, and learn to resign with good grace all that you are not. (Henry Frederick Emile)
