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
I'm not writing anything right now, so I'm not insecure. About writing, anyway. I've kind of lost myself the last couple of days, but today I'm beginning to feel myself again. I got triggered by lots of fear about the unknown. But with the help of several really good friends, I got clear about what was causing my anxieties and figured out what I needed to do about them. Whew! Having battled depression multiple times in my life, I'm relieved that this one only lasted a few days.
How about you? What's happening in your world?
