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

Monday Musings - Looking ahead versus being in the moment
I have a lot to look forward to this year--a lovely road trip with hubby to several national parks, a really close friend is getting married, Sugartime has lots of performances scheduled, and my writing is moving along nicely. But looking forward keeps me from being in the moment. So, I am learning to bring myself back to the here and now. And right now, this moment, my priority is to allow this novel to emerge. And to do that, I need to spend time with it each day.
How about you? Are you a planner or do you spend your time in the present moment?
