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

Telling the Truth Tuesday - Supporting our friends - Guest Blogger Coming
Dear readers, you are in for a treat. L. Diane Wolfe, a dynamic author and public speaker, is stopping by during her blog tour to talk about self-esteem, and her new YA novel, Heather. She is known in bloggydom as Spunk on a Stick and you'll soon see why. Tune in tomorrow for Diane's guest blog and be sure to check out the links to her website and books.
As for Telling the Truth Tuesday, I thought it appropriate to talk a bit about supporting each other. This truly is a wonderfully supportive community, this bloggydom world. I feel as if I know the people behind the blogs I follow, even though we've never physically met. So how can we be of service to each other besides visiting blogs and leaving comments? We can buy each others' books. We can help promote each others' books, if we're comfortable with that, which is what the guest blogging is all about. It is an opportunity for readers of this blog to become acquainted with someone I respect and admire.This time it's Diane Wolfe.
The tricky part is, how do we handle it if someone whom we don't necessarily feel comfortable promoting on our blogs asks us to do so. Has that ever happened to you? How do you deal with it?
