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

For the last year or so, for oh so many reasons, I was unable to do lots of the activities that filled my heart with joy - singing, dancing, and writing. But I've done some healing work and suddenly I find myself singing and dancing again, if only in my own living room all alone. One of the insights that came from my healing work is that I am the source of my own joy. I've always looked to others to give me something I thought I needed, but I know now I am whole and complete just the way I am. It has freed me up to express that joy in more ways than just with my precious grandbabies.
May your days and nights be filled with joy.
