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 - BFF's
A lot of pain is associated with these losses, particularly the ones from when I was already an adult. What I have learned is that having a best friend isn't what is important. What is important is having people in your life who really and truly get you. You don't have to explain yourself. You don't have to make excuses or apologize. You can just say whatever you need to say and know you are still loved and it will be all right.
I am blessed to have several people in my life who fit this description. One of them is visiting this week.
How about you? Do you have a best friend or friends? Have you kept childhood friendships?
