Dare boldly

A blog by Louise Gallagher

Living is the Journey


When I was little I used to yearn to be ‘all grown up’. Somehow, that place of being grown up seemed better than the process of the journey to it.

I’m still growing up.

Still learning.

Still gaining understanding, insight, knowledge and a deep appreciation for every step of the journey.

Being ‘all grown up’ is not the journey.

Living is.

Just for today, let go of looking at some other place you’d rather be and settle into the space you’re in right now.

Breathe deeply of this moment right now and treasure each breath, step, sight. Savour each passing moment and fill it with gratitude, harmony and delight.

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.

  2. After attending a forty year YaYa weekend this really hit home. Loved your point about how we want to be grown up avoid the process. That resonated a lot in our conversations as we reflected our journey and told our stories.
    A blog when I get home for sure. Lol.
    There were four of us. And one has cancer and has accepted the fact that our plans for the next one may not happen for her. But life doesn’t always guarantee tomorrow for any of us. My friend with ALS who’d been given a couple of years outlived a lot of his friends who prayed for him!
    But the reminder of just riding the wave & enjoying the happy moments as they came really was big this weekend.
    Why do you always right about things that make me relate so that I end up highjacking
    your blog?! lol.
