Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. 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.

It is the most bizarre thing. I don't know if there is a correlation or not (I think there is), but as soon as I rid myself of something toxic in my life, I've been filled with more energy than I know what to do with. I mean, it used to be, I'd force myself to exercise, then I'd have to rest a while before forcing myself to do the next thing on my list. Now, I exercise, practice singing, practice piano, write, blog, and still have more energy left over. I feel alive. A young 17-year-old friend shared with me last night that she receives phone calls from a classmate and after the conversation, she feels "dead." It made me wonder how many people and things are in our daily lives that make us feel that way. I will be paying much closer attention to my energy levels around people and activities to help me understand this phenomenon. How about you? Blessings, Karen
