Some years ago, I would find myself doing Google searches on others' journeys.   I added something in another forum, in hopes it helps others, the same way everyones' posts have helped me.  I thought I would share it here, as well.

This is five years difference.  The left is from 2016, I was 42 then.  The right is from two days ago, one year and one month of estradiol, and I'm now 47.  I'm smiling in both, but there is a lot of pain behind that smile five years ago.   The smile from two days ago?  That comes to my face so much more easily now.  Having an unforced smile is truly a gift.

Thank you again, everyone. :)

You are doing great.  :)
It is true you have a smile in both pics BUT I can see clearly a big difference in the way your smile is sparkling especially in your eyes.

Best wishes
Margrit

Thank you, Margrit. :)  It's so nice to actually see myself, and what I see and what I feel is aligned.  I hope we all are able to experience this.

I haven’t done a post in this newest Before and After thread so... here we go! 😀!!!

In my early 50s... I was lost...🌺

And now I am found 🌺

Age 59 and a few months... Now a wife, step-mother, grandmother, public speaker and a thousand other things I never dreamed that I would be... until I decided to do the one thing that is, at once, the most simple of things... yet most difficult of things... to be myself

And now... A few unsolicited thoughts for those of you who have found yourself here, considering life's possibilities... and are starting to realize that your life... will never truly be YOUR life... until a few changes are made...

Let go of the things that no longer serve you... Let go of the pretense of the false persona, it is not you... Let go of the armored shell you have worn for a lifetime to serve the expectations of others and to protect the woman inside... She needs protection no longer.... She is tired of hiding and more courageous than you know... Let her prove that to you....Let her step out of the dark and feel the light upon her face....

Embrace the things that express your inner truth... Show the world and those you Love ...Finally... Who you truly are... Embrace the liberation found in jumping off a cliff in your life even though you don’t completely know what lies below... There is a quote I like by Martin Luther King...

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.”

It is never too late.... CHOOSE to see how you will make your life an expression of who you truly are... not the reasons you cannot... A journey of a thousand steps is taken one at a time...Don’t get lost in the details...  Keep moving forward!!!... In the end, your life will be what you make it... So,... Make it glorious!... make it what you want... make it what you need.... Make it a life well lived... Leave regrets behind you where they belong... All shall be well 🌻

LIVE LIFE... LOVE LIFE...

Onward we go brave sisters,

Ashley  🙋‍♀️💕🌻
