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

A-Z Challenge: Z - I'm ready!!
It's hard to imagine that 600 or so people who blog are willing to participate in something like this. I know Arlee Bird http://tossingitout.blogspot.com/, whose brainchild this is, has seen great success on his blog through doing this the first time. Others have as well.
I'm not sure what constitutes success for me, however. I write about different things than most other bloggers. I write about my personal journey, which doesn't seem to draw as many followers and steady readers as other blogs.
But I'm okay with that. This will be fun and challenging, hence the name A-Z challenge.
Only two more posts before we begin on 4/1.
