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: doing everything I want to do
I worry sometimes that I won't have time to do everything. Truth is, I probably won't, which is why getting clear about priorities is so important. I don't want to have any regrets when I get to the end of my life. I want to live each day as fully as possible. So why is it that I waste so much time doing stupid things like online jigsaw puzzles or spider solitaire? Wasting time is like throwing money in the garbage can and the trash people come and take it away. You can never get it back.
I am hereby resolving to make an effort to not waste as much time. How about you?
