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

Gratitude - Letter "N"
Today I am grateful for those in my life who are just plain "nice." I have to start with my wonderful hubby, who is one of the nicest guys I've ever known. He is very even-tempered, will do just about anything you ask him to do, willingly and with good cheer, and I have never heard him say a bad word about anyone. Come to think of it, he is the very definition of "nice." Sometimes I am not so nice. If I am tired, I can get very cranky and irritable. Also if I go too long without eating. I try not to get to hungry or tired. I am also nasty to telemarketers sometimes. I think I need to take a page from my loving husband and work on being nicer more of the time. It will affect my karma if I don't, right?
Are you nice?
