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 "V"
I love the word vivacious, don't you? Doesn't it conjure someone who is outgoing and fun, and energetic and charismatic, but not overly so. Too much of these things can become obnoxious, someone who is trying to garner all the attention. But one who is vivacious is just naturally so. Their inner spirit of joy just shines through.
Do you know any vivacious people? I have a few in my life and just adore them.
