One of my favorite shows is coming to end, Being Erica. There was some very inspirational quotes from a character called Dr. Tom. He had a quote for almost everything. He also had his own words of wisdom as well. Some of it was pretty profound, other times it made you laugh, feel moved, or even gave you insight to your own life beyond the show.

I'm going to truly miss this gem of a show, because it was so different. So I felt inspired to post the quotes from this current season and share it with everyone who reads the blog. I feel maybe something could work for you or maybe someone you know.

Sometimes just one word or one phrase can help make a world of sense out of something that didn't before . . .
