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

That said, I still get into trouble comparing myself to other more "successful" authors. I still dream of being a traditionally published author selling lots of books. And I still need to write, whether or not my words get out there for others to see. My insecurities stifle my creativity. I need to constantly remind myself not to compare myself to anyone else. And if I stop dreaming, I might as well be dead.

I know, not very smart cutting back after the challenge because I do so want to keep up with my new blogging friends and continue down the list of participants. I only made it to about 1/2 the bloggers.
I will do the best I can, that's all I can promise.
Happy May Day!
