+ and a thumbs up to you Faith for having the courage to post your current pictures.

It took me several years before I could post my picture. For me, it was all about accepting myself and the consequences for posting a public picture.

Faith!

Except for that first picture, every single picture I have seen of you could go on the You Look Fabulous thread! And the recent picture? Wow. Just wow. Feminine. Beautiful.

I look forward to seeing your pictures, because they are inspiring...

I don’t normally do this but I was clearing through old hard drives and came across one of the last pictures ever taken of me pre transition so here we go, there’s nearly 10 years between these pics.

Wow Sasha!  No way!  I agree with Liina; had you not told us I would have never put the two together. 

Faith, you look fantastic!  You look very happy and much younger too.

Thanks both, there are a lot of changes, some natural via hormones and age and a few tiny cosmetic procedures to help further 😊

You are welcome! I came across another old image while clearing more old hard drives and memory cards and compared one to a recent image.

Impressive.

BTW, I tend to purge old photos, or just archive them. I never share or post old photos.  ;D ;D

It’s ‘before and after‘ images like this that make me regret not going through with transition in my 20’s. Stunning results!

I did something  similar, going back through my old Facebook pictures and I found these 2 doozies.

The first is from '09 or so, the second is about 3 years ago, & the 3rd was a month ago. It really is when you see the old pics that you realize how far you've come.

Hey All...

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,

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 armor that 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.... amg🌸
