Just a quick thought

So for some reason I am just NOW watching the pilot episode of Firefly. Wow. I really missed out. Thank God for Hulu!

So anyways, I had a conversation today about overthinking things. Something I tend to do often. We discussed how while overthinking has saved me from major embarrassment it has also caused me to not take risks. I'm realizing that I regret missing out so much more than I could ever regret feeling embarrassed for a few minutes. While that may seem obvious to most, I've always struggled with the due to my insecurities. So from now on I'm going to try to not overthink. That's not to say I'm not going to think things thru, I just need to not let it consume me. I think that the overthinking is the characteristic of my personallyty that really can consume me with sadness some days. I've always spent too much time "wondering". Hopefully I can force myself to stop subjecting myself to that.

I had a girlfriend once that was always talking about the 'what if' scenario. She was totally into protecting herself from 'regret'. That is very numbing.
