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

Central America Here I Come

I'm going to have to leave you guys for a little while. Hubby and I are going to Guatemala for a family wedding.  I want to leave you with a quote from Christina Aguilera. She was speaking to one of her team members from The Voice who got eliminated. She said, "Don't ever let anyone else's opinion define who you are." Enough said!

Be well, everyone, and I'll catch up when we return, sometime after Thanksgiving.
Blessings,
Karen

I googled the quote - someone attributed it to the character of Miranda Hobbes from Sex in the City. :))
