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 want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving holiday. Hubs has the week off and we are going to be spending some very needed time together, and we'll probably be going to be with our family member, so there won't be any new blog posts next week. I am trying to remember to be grateful for so many things, despite chaos and suffering all around me. Hope you find many things to be grateful for as well. I'll be back on Monday after Thanksgiving.
