So, like everything else; books, movies, stories, there has to be a starting point. A beginning. This is mine.
A 44 yr old ex Trucker looking to change everything. 😉
I post this not only for the benefit of the readers, but also for my own benefit as I continue on this journey. I know for a fact from time to time, when things are seeming low or down, that I will need a reminder of how far I have come. This photo will at least serve that purpose.
I will also be neat to compare as I post progressive pics as the efects of Spiro and Estrogen start to work their magic.
I am not trying to set unrealistic goals, and know full well the difficulties facing me. This post though, only serves as a baseline, the control. Ground zero if you will. This has been an incredibly long and sometimes torturous bout of acceptance, self hate, purging, and discovery. Just getting to the point where I could finally be happy with myself was hard enough.
The wonderful thing though about it, is for the first time in a very long time, I am happy! Honestly happy. Everyone who knew me beforehand knows how downright miserable I was and I mean horrifyingly miserable. I would give the Grinch a run for his money.
Now that I know how to be happy, and enjoy life, my friends, and see the positive for a change. I can now try to get back to the pic to the right. ( Or try to get as close as I can again. )
That was me a LONG time ago when I was figuring myself out, and involved in a local C/D social club. It was a time when I was having the most fun, and still more or less being “me”.
So, now we have a start. We have a more or less desired end. Our collective goal. I guess its my job to fill in all the blank pages, and get from point A to B, and document it the best I can.
Thank you for joining me!
Peace and Love!
