Victoria Erickson Quote

  • November 21, 2015


“Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life – that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.” —Victoria Erickson

    The water metaphor is perfect, considering that we need to adapt to the change and to the life challenges, and life is never static.

    I agree with you,humans are complicated creatures and as such we are found wanting in most areas of life. We should have to work both sides out.

    Wonderful quotes, I think we need to create a balance in all things. I’m almost same like you, I like to be with people alot and at the same time I like also like to be alone.

    I am also like this but there are things that I will never be open or compromise. Example my belief of no vices. Sometimes standing your ground can be good too.

    Beautiful passage. It really captures the duplicity of all human beings. Part of the excitement of life is the need to try everything and feel all types of emotions. Thanks for writing.

    Nice quote..its humans beings are indeed complicated.The truth is we can only get rid of that messiness in our life by simply understanding life..we need to be flexible and adapt to changes because the only constant thing in nature is change.

    This is really deep. Got me into having some introspection.
