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

Keeping to a routine that works
I found a daily routine that really fits me and my personality and my issues. Get up, eat breakfast, exercise (which I now call movement), shower, dress, meditate, write, practice singing, then blog. It works. If I do these things, in this particular order, I am done around lunchtime (this is if I wake at 6:30). I feel wonderful to have accomplished all these things by noon.
So why oh why do I do it Monday, Tuesday, then by Wednesday I'm deciding, oh maybe I'll blog first. Or I'll exercise later. Or, whatever stupid idea comes into my head to change it up. Then, of course, I don't exercise later and the writing is out the window for the day.
I am going to take my own advice and go inward with this dilemma to see what the triggers are that make me want to change what is working. I'll let you know what I discover.
Do any of you have a similar situation where you don't do what you know works?
