The Wonder Years


For the past week or so I have been in a strange place. I expected this feeling to come along as I am ,for the first time, with out a concrete plan. I can barely calm my mind enough to even try and figure it out let alone explain it yet. But today, i found a handful of quotes that either come close to explaining how i feel right now or they speak very closely to me . The crazy thing is that they all come from that amazing TV classic we all know. THE WONDER YEARS.

“Change is never easy. You fight to hold on. You fight to let go.”

“Over the course of the average lifetime you meet a lot of people. Some of them stick with you through thick and thin. Some weave their way through your life and disappear forever. But once in a while someone comes along who earns a permanent place in your heart”

“All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope... all the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect... who might be searching for us.”

This one is very special to me right now because of a certain friend I couldnt get through this with out...
“I guess sometimes the ground can shift between your feet. Sometimes your footing slips. You stumble. And sometimes you grab what's close to you and hold on as tight as you can.”

This one remindes me of another close friend that unfortunately is sometimes hard to hold on to...
“Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we didn't have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves... for growing up.”

And lastly, i just wish one day I will be lucky enough to find someone that could feel this way about me...
“Once upon a time there was a girl I knew, who lived across the street. Brown hair, brown eyes. When she smiled, I smiled. When she cried, I cried. Every single thing that ever happened to me that mattered, in some way had to do with her. That day Winnie and I promised each other that no matter what, that we'd always be together. It was a promise full of passion and truth and wisdom. It was the kind of promise that can only come from the hearts of the very young.”

  1. All amazing quotes... and from such an awesome show. I remember watching the Wonder Years, and loving it... wanting to be Winnie Cooper, and not realizing how much wisdom the show really offered to us young followers. Maybe that was part of its charm.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
