Are You a Waffler?

One who waffles, from the verb waffle, meaning to never settle on a stance on one (or more) issue(s); A waffler usually goes from one side to the other and back again, usually multiple times, depending on who (s)he is talking to at the time. -Urban Dictionary A dear friend of mine has amazing design instincts and yet she is currently stuck in “I don’t know land” about a paint color for her kitchen. It has been going on for quite some time. She currently has a gorgeous hand painted mural of a garden scene that is timeless but the walls abutting it are a dated faux finish so she wants to change them to a solid colored paint and she is torturing herself over what color to pick. Should she go with the gray lavender that is in walls in the hall adjoining for a subtle consistent flow or a pear color that is in the bird in the mural for a pop of color and fun? She asked me my opinion on the colors she was thinking of and I told her what I thought. My background is in art and design so it made sense to consult with me on this. She has also asked the opinion of numerous others which has caused her to waffle. Basically I let her know that none of her choices were wrong-she has a great eye- but each choice would give her a different feeling and she had to choose which feeling she wanted. That is where she has to make the decision. This is where the “rubber meets the road”...

One Life-A Letter to Myself

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”. “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” Pablo Picasso The older I get the more I want to create my life intentionally. It has become my mission to have reverence for my time left, whatever that may be, to embrace life. This is my journey and I get to decide what it looks like. And I want to take other women on this ride, or I should say on their own authentic ride. I want to help them see that anything is possible and it is never too late to create what they want. What about you? What do you want your precious life to look like? What would make your heart sing? One of the things that I know for sure is that I want my daughters to see a woman aging with joy for life, someone who embraces every moment and carves a path for other women to celebrate themselves. I want to model a new kind of ageism-one that celebrates the mature woman. I am laughing as I say “mature woman” because there is that part of me who still feels like a kid and frankly, I never want to lose that childlike wonder. As I celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary in Campden Maine with my whole family I am reminded that we can learn so much from children. Holding my niece’s baby today, I watched him explore my hand with fascination. Time stood still as I watched...
