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: one day at a time
What is helping me is reminding myself that I can only do one thing at a time, one day at a time. Yesterday is gone, no use torturing myself over what I did that was wrong or what I didn't do I should have done. Tomorrow isn't here yet, so why torture myself over what may not even happen? Instead, just do the best I can right now, in this moment.
How about you? Do you live in the past or the future and forget the now?
