I’m sure most have noticed, I’ve been going into my archives and pulling up old posts. Some of these posts are ten years old.
I’m doing this because things have changed. It used to be a fine idea to upload a giant picture for your posts. People are mobile now. This is no longer practical! I’ve got to scale the pictures to current standards or it’s a matter of time before google de-indexes the posts.
I’ve been quite surprised by my old writing in that I agree with myself, 100%. People come on here all the times, stunned at comments they made six or eight years ago. They don’t recognize themselves. I would expect to have the same experience, but it hasn’t happened. I’m thrilled with this and I’ll explain.
My husband can’t stand people who lack a consistent theory. He also thinks a person is bound to be miserable without one. He’s talking about people who have rules that apply in some circumstances but not others. They irritate him because they make no sense.
I can see my own consistency in these old posts. I am always trying to help or teach. Some are entertaining, but the basis of all of them are the same.
I work with clients like this, as well. I don’t care who you are. If you come to me, I am going to try to help you, the very best I can. PERIOD.
The other thing I notice, is my opinions have not changed. I’m pretty sure I know why.
Though I may appear daring or reckless (Mars conjunct Mercury), I’m really cautious. No one with Capricorn wants to be “publically wrong”! I only write about things I know. If I don’t know, I say so. I leave it to others to answer.
This is not to say that I am never wrong. But it is to say, I’m never making it up. I have real life experience to back up everything I’ve ever written on this site. The ideas are mine and my beliefs are consistent.
There are 10,000 posts on this site. There would be a lot more, but I have to keep the database reasonable so I trim the site. I do this because I want my solid, real knowledge to be accessible to younger generations. And if I want that, I have to update, even though it’s tedious.
Do you have a consistent theory?
