VLLG Blog: Chapter One

Peace, Village Family. Maggie here. I hope you’re well today.

Welcome to our VLLG Blog. We are excited to share our stories and insights with you, and we hope that you find these posts as liberating as we do. 

Today, I want to formally introduce this blog with my favorite quote of all time, a line from Shakespeare’s The Tempest. It goes:

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on;
And our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

We can do anything and be anyone that we want – we are all gifted with innumerable opportunities that are just waiting to be seized. Life is too short to not live it out as fully as possible; we should always shoot for the moon, because even if we fail, we’ll still land among the stars (I know, I know, it’s cliched to say).

This life we live is so fickle and ever-changing, and we should never take any of it for granted. We are all worldly equals – worthy of every chance in the world to pursue our dreams. At the end of it all, we are one in the same.

No dream is too big or too small. No dream should be refused, ignored, or laughed at. 

Life can move so fast and everything can happen so much that it can really be difficult to see the value in what you’re fortunate enough to have: to love, to be loved, to travel, to learn, to live, to enjoy.

It may be ever-changing, but we should all strive to live and to grow in this life as much as we possibly can.
