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

Internet Marketing Musings
Today, however, seeds planted several months ago bore some fruit. A website posted a guest blog I wrote: http://healmyptsd.com/2009/07/survivors-speak-the-importance-of-paying-attention.html. Then I received an email from the Catharsis Foundation in Calgary, asking permission to list "Following the Whispers" as a resource for their website visitors, who are survivors of childhood abuse.
Slowly but surely, I am getting the hang of all this new technology. It feels wonderful to know that the pain I endured growing up and the journey I took towards healing myself is somehow making a difference in peoples' lives today. Writing our life stories is so powerful.
Speaking of memoir, Alexis Grant is hosting a chat for writers on Twitter tomorrow night, July 8 at 8 pm EST, #memoirchat is the hashtag. Check it out.
