Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

But I have a purpose for my blog. It is not just a brain-dumping ground. It is to help me generate an audience of readers interested in what I have to say--an interest which will hopefully lead them to purchase my book(s). I must, therefore, choose my subjects wisely and write well-thought out pieces that will intrigue others.
Hard to do in a daily blog challenge. I've managed to post a blog each day, but truthfully, not all that much thought has gone into them. My to-d0-list will now include a list of potential "columns" to write that will further my blog's purpose. Future topics might include: overcoming the effects of childhood sexual abuse; growing up and out of your dysfunctional family successfully; overcoming low self-esteem; adolescent promiscuity and its aftermath; pitfalls to avoid in choosing partners; developing inner peace and self-acceptance.
