March On and March Forth: How to Overcome Hesitation

Taking a page (well, a post) from the past to move forward today. A day to march on and march forth as I work on how to overcome hesitation and take action instead.


(This section is the original post-from March 2 2017, and this is part of my 3Rs – Reuse, Recycle Rewrite)

‘I wonder how, I wonder why
Just a couple more weeks just flew by…..’

Well, I should not really be wondering since I do know the hows and whys of how time zoomed past these past couple of weeks. With a little bit more planning, I could have continued to blog regularly as I did in January as part of the UBC and earlier in February as well. It was hectic definitely, both on the home and work front, and when I did get some time for myself, I either read (but did not get myself to write about what I read) or watched some TV to relax. And today, as a new month is marching in, I am working my way back into my blog. In an attempt to think of what to write, I looked for inspiration in random prompts and came up with: Hesitate

And the first thing I thought of for more inspiration was to look for quotes with this word. Here are some I found and loved; while most use the word ‘hesitate’ or ‘hesitation’ directly, in others it is implied and I loved those as well 🙂

P.G.Wodehouse brought a smile to my face with this quote about ‘hesitation‘ and well, should I tell you? or maybe not?, well, I think I should not hesitate, about ‘Hamlet‘ too!

“It was one of those cases where you approve the broad, general principle of an idea but can’t help being in a bit of a twitter at the prospect of putting it into practical effect. I explained this to Jeeves, and he said much the same thing had bothered Hamlet.” – P.G. Wodehouse, Jeeves in the Morning

while this quote below kind of tells me why February was a dry blog month for me.. 🙂
“On the plains of hesitation bleach the bones of countless millions who, at the dawn of decision, sat down to wait, and waiting died.” – George W. Cecil 

and this is something I truly love and try to follow as much as I can (my DH is one who truly believes in this, and lives it and proves it constantly – for example, today he made sandwiches for the kids’ lunches with one twist – this twist was one he learned by watching the chefs at a Tokyo hotel on his last trip; the result – they both loved the sandwiches; and note that when I have made these exact sandwiches in the past, minus the twist, the kids have always some lunch leftover; today, there was nothing left except compliments!!)

“If you hesitate to learn from others, you will never learn anything new.” – Raaz Ojha

While Martha Beck inspires me and fills me with courage (to go ahead and do something new anyways) with this quote of hers!
“I’ve never understood why some people hesitate before diving into unfamiliar tasks or activities. I couldn’t imagine wanting more instructions about anything.” – Martha Beck
and Marian Anderson inspires to do the right thing with her quote
“There are many persons ready to do what is right because in their hearts they know it is right. But they hesitate, waiting for the other fellow to make the make the first move – and he, in turn, waits for you.”

This quote above also reminded me of a video I watched a month ago about Lost Voices. This was a brilliant video. You can watch it here

This also goes went towards my ABC Wednesday post for the letter H; Hopefully no more hesitating for this month…

    1. Melody, thank you so much for your comments – it definitely has made me feel better.. 🙂 and I know the truth of what you say but there is always a time when you feel like better planning might have meant having done more…so will keep your words in mind for such of those times in the future.
