Dare boldly

Let me be the ripple


Not writing here every day has been a gift and an awakening. It has given me the opportunity to gain some awareness on the value and importance of ‘consistency’ and a chance to reflect on why I write and create, and the importance of doing it every day.


As I reflected on the value of consistency, my thoughts centered around the importance of knowing ‘the what’ of what it is I want to be through everything I do, create and say everyday…

What I want to be each day is inspiring, caring, kind, and loving.

I want to create more of what I value in the world — peace, love, harmony and joy.

I want to give the grace I wish to receive.

I want to be the ripple that inspires a tsunami of love all around.

Reflecting on those things I want to create in the world around me, I reframed my ‘wants’ into a ‘here and now’ statement. In the ‘here and now’, they become my daily intentions, the ‘thing’ I frame my thinking and actions for the day on because I know, this is what my day is all about. This is what will bring my heart peace. This is what will create the more of what I want in my world.  And, like writing here every morning, the consistency of my intentions becomes my path.  Centered on my path, I become that which I create and what I create becomes me. And in those moments when I fall off the path, I breathe and remind myself, Always begin again. And so I do. And so it is.

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. LG,

    Some adding .. or perhaps counterpoint for you.

    What if, as you start to create anything … you just let your juices flow, do, write, paint etc. … without the mental focus – just let the creative process you know so well take you through it.

    My guess – expectation and prediction is this: if you don’t harness yourself with “I want to create more of what I value in the world — peace, love, harmony and joy” as a mandate … you will get ‘pure Louise’ product and it will likely touch all those bases.

    My thinking, drawn on my experience, is that our best work is often a product of not thinking, not planning, not predicting a purpose or an outcome.

    You’ll get the outcome.

    It will probably, since you are so authentic, meet those tests.

    But it might more-free, not self-harnessed, but self-released …

    And who knows what you might create.



    p.s. I predicted you would miss the ‘daily-ness’. Methinks I was right …


  2. LOL — you are right Mark. I do! 🙂

    it is the ‘flow’ of which you write for me. 🙂

    Hope you have a wonderful day — we must do that lunch! let’s connect.


  3. Reblogged this on Not Just Sassy on the Inside and commented:
    Louise hits it out of the park again — this could be my prayer — don’t think I’d write it as eloquently…


  4. Damn you write such amazing posts


  5. Louise, whether you write every day or not does not change that you are a tsunami of love! ❤

  6. I will print this post and this poster. I want this to be my daily prayer. Thank you Louise.
    PS: Is it OK to reblog it?
    Much Love!


  7. Louise, this is poetic. 🙂

    And it speaks of everything I too want my life to be about.

    You have just reassured me that am not crazy to want the awesomeness of all things life.

    To ripples!
