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 - Celebrations
Honoring those kinds of things is, to me, way more important than celebrating a holiday. I'm not knocking celebrating holidays. That's fine and fun. But taking a moment to stop and recognize our personal accomplishments is saying to ourselves, yes, yes, yes, we wanted something and we did something about it. The outcome is not the important factor here.
I'm learning to honor the small steps I take to make me a more content person in my life. So today, I'm celebrating that although it took me 2 1/2 years to do it, I am finally going to have a book blog tour (see tab page above for details).
What can you celebrate today?
