On Second Thought

I am not tech-y.
Well, according to my parents, I am.  I'm not twittery.  I'm not facebooky.  But, that's not the point.  The thing is...
I don't tag my posts here.  I don't categorize them.  And I don't keep track of them in any way shape or form.  Often, the titles are so obscure in regards to the post, I don't have the slightest idea what it means four years later.
So, I was searching for something I wrote awhile ago, to see if there was a certain quote I'd included.  I found the post, but, even then, didn't find the quote.

Now, I've found the quote:

Second thoughts have aborted more dreams than all the difficult circumstances, overwhelming obstacles, and dangerous detours fate ever could throw at you. Undermining your authenticity by succumbing to someone else's second thoughts is a sinister, subtle, and seductive form of self-abuse.--sarah ban breathnach

And then, I found that I quite like looking back
and I enjoyed re-reading these finds, like
this post
this post
and this post

annnnnd was just about to feel badly about a year passing since I wrote this hopeful post,
when I realized this all started with a search for the quote.
I re-read the quote.
Must remember the quote.

I do that indexing tagging thing and I am so bad at it and am just guessing (and i mean this in a good way) that you might not be too good at it either. Try picking one name/theme/idea that says what your post is about!

Better to spend your time writing, and finding classic goodness like these posts. They are just great.

Thank's, one more time Mol, for a found quote that speaks to me.
Thank-you to Sarah Ban Breathnach, for putting into words, what I could not, yet recognise well. Enough with second thoughts, I feel it , know it, and these words remind me to trust myself... Do it!
