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

Insecure Writer's Support Group - November
Am I insecure this month? Hmmm, let's see. Damned right I am. I have my inner child terrified of this journey we are about to embark on, my adult self knowing I've overcome much more difficult obstacles, my dark side telling me, "who do you think you are to think you can do this" and my Light side blocked in the shadows.
In other words, I'm stuck. I know I will shift out of here. I've been here before and this too shall pass. It always does. But it's not fun until it does. I am distracting myself with friends, movies, and spider solitaire.
Till next time...
