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

Telling the Truth Tuesday - Live each day as if it's your last
So I'm tired all the time. My hip hurts. Oy vay!.
What are we to do with all the problems and turmoil and pain, physical, emotional and spiritual? Are we to be sad and depressed and go woe is me and just about give up? No. Are we to live in fear about all of these things? No.
I say we need to learn to live each day as fully as possible, finding joy wherever and whenever we can. Because all we have that we can be sure of is this moment. Right here. Right now. What are we going to do with it.
How about you?
