Post-it, found inside an old notebook

I don't particularly remember the instances of why I wrote it down, but this is what it tells me:

My advice to anyone who wants to find himself is this: Stay right where you are, because if you don't, you're in danger of losing yourself forever. --Jostein Gaarder, The Solitaire Mystery.

I'm supposing it's from my Philo I phase and the semesters immediately after. But somehow, it resonates to me soundly right now. I didn't stay where I was. I moved. I was thinking maybe that's the coward's way out. The dilemma now is whether to stay put or go back to where I was. Decisions, decisions, indeed.
