Yes, that's true Kelli. Sometimes the choice is not to decide, which in essence is a decision. Totally valid, but hopefully that choice doesn't keep you in a stagnant place of waffle, but rather allows you to move on to something else. :) CYnc: an unending flow of creativity... w:www.cindyyantis.com "What you imagine is but a fraction of what's possible."

By Cindy Yantis Some thoughts, and perhaps thought changers, on one my least favorite places to be: Indecision. Indecision is the enemy of spontaneity. Indecision is the enemy of the artist.

By Cindy Yantis Real isn’t always nice. I saw a friend recently and she told me she saw a change in me, that I was more grounded. “You’re more real, not so nice.” And, I got it. When I was about nine, growing up in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, there was... Continue reading
