My last jaunt through a mall I regularly visit had me exchanging dialogue with other women merchants in a way I had never experienced as a male; and I must admit that I like it and value the lessons it's teaching me about myself and others. That coming out of my shell as Joanna has given me a boost of confidence which is spilling over into all facets of my life. Even in my male mode at work I seem to benefit from the energy I have been given.
Will these experiences eventually have me embracing and preferring my female side? That is a distinct possibility which I will not fear. Since I am not out to talk myself into anything I will just let things go where they must both naturally and organically.
