She Who Hesitates...

Fear causes hesitation and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true.

Patrick Swayze as Bodhi
Point Break

I feel like this is the story of my life. It's the lesson I'm always trying to work on and at which I am failing miserably. Maggie Mason has been doing a Life List and she has some pointers for making one's own. I could barely read through them because this Swayze quote was screaming in my head taunting me and pulling my pigtails.


  1. We've all got our things, and we keep getting presented with challenges to those things - over and over and over - until we figure them out. I love that you're tackling your things head-on, though; you inspire me.

  2. I'm right there with you sis. funny thing, i've been talking about point break at work this week. it's about his only movie i DIDN"T see.

    the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing--(bonusmom's weightwatchers leader named kitty)

  3. I like that one Zelda. It's hard to do, though.

    I don't feel like I'm facing it all head on but I'm as close to head on as I can stand. It's all very scary.
