I know I need to do this for so many reasons, but the what-ifs and fear have such a hold on me.
I’m so used to playing it safe by going to familiar places(“safe” places I can go alone & feel comfortable) or having someone to accompany me to social events so I wouldn’t feel awkward. Now that my social circle is shrinking(because my of friends married lives, starting families & relocation) I need to make some adjustments and put myself out there and make things happen with my life.
Overall I just need get rid of this fear that has kept me in this rut. 1 month ago
Last night, I was (finally) telling GF about my position in the gender spectrum & how I want to deal with it. A truely open conversation opening the way to a deeper level in our relationship and exploring further who I am.
Excited :) 3 months ago
I’m thinking about getting a swimsuit to go swimming again. I’m not really afraid of swimming, I’m afraid of showing so much of my body. Swimsuits make me very uncomfortable, but I think I can get over it. I’ve only just recently started showing my arms. Maybe sometime I’ll graduate to shorts, too! I’m excited to start getting more confident. 5 months ago
since I feel I’m back on my feet again.
I’ve traveled, met new people, started handing out resumes etc and I had fun while doing it. I wish the same to all of you too <3 6 months ago

Ok so I already discussed signing up to a girls mentor-ship program accidentally last time. So I get to meet my mentor yesterday, she seems like an awesome girl. She’s 28 years old, working, and just a sweetheart :)
We went out with her sister (the counselor) and another mentor (who’s menty* didn’t show). We went to an art show/ music/ silent auction fundraiser/ food tasting event. It was pretty awesome, we took silly pictures in costumes.
I haven’t gone out with girls in like over 2 years! That felt so nice, and I got to wear one of my many pairs of heels I haven’t gotten to wear before.
All and all very good experience. I’m looking forward to regaining my confidence and social skills. :) 7 months ago
For 2 years, I did at least 3 things every day out of my comfort zone. It really helped. 7 months ago
The only way for you to succeed above the average person to constantly put yourself outside of your comfort zone. You need to do this either 50-50 or probably more than 50% of the time each day if you want to be better than the average person. And I’m hoping that I will eventually go with the latter option. 7 months ago
I used to volunteer as a translator and administrative assistant, I thought my file was closed, but I guess not. I accepted to go in tomorrow at 9:30am for about 30min to an hour for translation. I haven’t been downtown for a while, and to be honest I love going there!
So I accepted, I hope I deliver well.
I’m leaving the walls of this house for something other than the gym! or school (sometimes)! 7 months ago
