What made me happy today was looking back 3 years to day one of my new and real life and acknowledging just how far I’ve come. Xx

You've come a long way, Pammie, for sure; but you didn't look bad before...

It made me happy today to help out a special female friend of mine (platonic) who was having a problem with a man who was pursuing her. This isn't anything trans related but that's not all what this thread has to be about!

I had a skype talk with my boyfriend who is in the USA... and I am on a cloud right now...
Long distance love is so hard and hurts, but things like Skype are just so amazing at bringing you closer...
But, a fantastic day for me.. really happy... he told me he loved me... ahhhh...
Oh, life is bigger,  It's bigger Than you and you are not me

Because my girlfriend and I had a skype talk and I went over the moon and into solar orbit. Maybe one of the best days (but hard to pick since we met 6 months ago and have had so many) I love her to bits!  The time difference is a drag but I've learned sleep is optional when your crazy about someone.

Hey JanePlain, Long distance relationships are hard but when ‘true love‘ is involved, anything is possible!

Always My Best,

I walked into Whole Foods in my usual tomboy attire, short-shorts and tank, covid mask, bandanna tied around my neck like a scarve etc, and was greeted by the door-guy with "welcome ma'am".

First time I have been gendered as female!

Love it

XOXO

Dayle, that's awesome!!!  My first time was fairly recent as well so I can definitely feel your excitement.  Enjoy the ride.

That is wonderful to hear.

Chrissy
Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

As I get further along in my transition, I tend to feel the same way and not really care what people think of me.  We all have the need to present as who we are.  I'm happy for you and your continued progress in your transition.

I understand and can relate.  Thank you.

I just realized yesterday that I've finally reached the point where I no longer see a man in the mirror.

Even if I'm not completely satisfied with what I see (which I think is typical for a woman, honestly), what I do see, my mind registers as a woman physically. The incongruity has begun to leave & it feels wonderful.

I walked into Whole Foods in my usual tomboy attire, short-shorts and tank, covid mask, bandanna tied around my neck like a scarve etc, and was greeted by the door-guy with "welcome ma'am".

Congratulations!!!  :eusa_dance:

I just had the same thing happen yesterday with a pizza guy. Opened the door & he said "How are you, ma'am?". It just made me feel all warm inside.  ;D
