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 - hard times on the planet
Are the stars out of alignment? Is Mercury in retrograde? Is there some dark force at work here? Until this past week, I've maintained my point of center despite all this stuff swirling around me. Was I feeling guilty because my biggest problem (aside from my family member with the potential health crisis) is that I'm not writing very much? I tend to absorb the energy of those around me. I can take on someone's mood in a nanosecond. If I detach myself emotionally, I feel disconnected, though. I'm trying to learn how to stay connected, but not take on the moods of others. Big challenge.
How are things in your neck of the woods?
