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

Monday Musings: It's official - I'm losing it!!!

I was sure I had written a post pre-scheduled for today. Nope. I tell you, this aging business is really starting to get to me, although it really does beat the alternative. It was a stressful week due to a pesky health issue I'm trying to wrap my mind around. That caused me to do things like not confirm appointments, scaring an elderly friend unnecessarily that something happened to me. And thinking I've done something when I haven't - like this blog post.

So, my musing for today is that I must stop, ground myself, do some deep breathing, and get myself back to spiritual, physical and emotional center.

How about you? What are you musing about today?

Hi Karen .. it does happen to many of us .. I know I haven't written a post, and thus have to write it - that's 'stressful' ..

Hope you can balance your life, relax and breathe more easily .. look after yourself - cheers Hilary
