As 2017 comes to an end, it's time to reassess the year and look ahead to 2018.
As I look at my life, I consider my Mtf transgender transition not unlike climbing a series of walls. Of course, some, like HRT or having legal gender markers changed are more serious than others.
2017 was fairly quiet for me. I look back at the year as one of stabilization. I was able to continue living day to day as a woman and learned from it...although not as dramatically as earlier in my transgender life.
Since I have been on HRT steadily now for three plus years and have even completed all my legal gender markers changes which are possible, what is next?
I still would love to have breast augmentation surgery someday to compliment my hip developement, but finances continue to be a issue in the near future.
Other than that, I still need to work on projecting an "aura" of femininity. I feel the need to out do cis women in this area, as they take their femininity for granted. Some, not so well.
Looking further back, I remember the excitement of someone like Cyrsti's Condo reader Marcia who is looking ahead to 2018. Having the chance to finally achieving her dream of transitioning fully! How scary/exciting it was for me.
Either way, looking ahead at a new year is always exciting for me. A chance to find other walls and climb them.
In fact, I am thinking of adding "Walls" into my proposed Trans Ohio Symposium workshop in the spring.
