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: I'm scared
It works in 80% of the people. The other 20% have some other contributing factors going on and more procedures must be done to fix those. I am praying I am in the 80%. The medicine I am on also had an 80% success rate and it hasn't worked, so it's hard for me to have a positive attitude. Instead, I am working on having no expectations - just putting one foot in front of the other, trying to get back to normal with my heart. The good news is I am not depressed. I am just nervous, as anyone would be facing an invasive procedure like this.
Do you believe in having a positive attitude and than possibly facing disappointment? Or having a negative attitude and than being surprised by a positive result? Or do you, like me, try to have no expectations and maintain an even keel?
