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

There are good reasons I don't trust myself. But they are old reasons. Reasons that no longer matter. I am not the same person who made bad choices. It's time to refresh my internal computer, upload new software, use new applications, hmm, I like this metaphor. Oh how I wish it were that easy to refresh the tapes running through our heads. But bringing them out of the darkness and into the light of awareness is a great first step. So today, I am going to begin to trust myself.
How about you?
