“One part of wisdom is knowing what you don’t need anymore and letting it go.” — Jane Fonda
Let’s truly reflect upon the notion of aging: Be brave and fearless. Try something new. Do not retreat. We have been at the Big Show of life for 40, 50 years – now is not the time to wind it down. We must continue to lead and be the power behind our years.
Let ‘s join the conversation: Time for activism. It’s a flashback to the 60’s. If you weren’t a protester than, you have been given a do-over. If government is not where you want your voice to be heard, there is plenty of room to take on the cashmere industry, workers rights, health care in 3rd world countries and so much more.
Let’s share our perspective. We have earned it. Lucy recently spoke to her daughters about what happened with Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein and the lot of them. She shared what she learned as a girlfriend, a working woman, and a person out in the world.
Let’s embrace technology: We are on the cusp of another huge sea change…voice activation. It is here. Find a young family member or friend – they will share the gift of making it work for you.
Let’s value the importance of learning: Winter in New England and lots of other parts of the country can be challenging so take an online class from one or more of the masters. https://www.masterclass.com. Think Annie Leibovitz, Gordon Ramsey, Herbie Hancock, Ron Howard, Judy Blume and truly etc.
Let’s buy beautiful not just practical. Today, fabrics are simply gorgeous. So many textures and embellishments to choose from – buy because it makes you feel special.
Claudia lost a friend yesterday whom she had visited on Christmas Eve. Because there are no more words needed –there was never more of a time to remember to:
Cherish each moment
Do what you say
Here is to happiness and good health in the New Year
Lucy and Claudia
