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

I am not someone who has ever been afraid of getting cancer. I don't live in fear of getting diseases, or that some disaster will occur. But I am nervous about this. I see the doctor today at 12:15. I've had more than my share of health issues: gall bladder surgery in 1973, fibroid tumors followed by a hysterectomy in 2001, ankle surgery in 2005, knee surgery in 2007, shoulder surgery in 2009, to name a few. I'm trying hard not to feel sorry for myself, but handling another health issue while still rehabbing my shoulder just doesn't seem fair. But hey, who ever said life is fair?
Sorry for the little whine here. I'll be more positive tomorrow - promise!
