A few posts ago I wrote about routines, questioning why, when I figure out something that works, I still find it difficult sometimes to make myself do what I know works. Part of it is that I get bored easily. But what it's really about is trust--trusting myself, trusting my process, and trusting the journey. Perhaps if, one day, I don't feel like writing, it just might be that I need more time to mull and allow my subconscious to work. And if I don't feel like exercising, it just might be that my body needs a day off.
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?

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.
