As good a time as any

This might be as good a time as any to stop since the beginning of another chapter of my life seems like a duly appropriate milestone. I can now say with absolute certainty that this will be my last ever entry here because the impetus to write here has dwindled and habit isn't a good enough reason to continue when your internal turmoil was the reason you began the blog in the first place. Risking repetition is also a good reason to stop.

If I've learned anything in writing this blog for 10 years and over my almost 60 years of life is that you need to respect your essence. In figuring out who you are whatever steps you take moving forward should be towards fortifying and honoring the integrity which constitutes your being. Whether cis, transgender or gender variant that applies to everyone. Never let other people dictate who you are or make you feel pressured to compromise the essence which makes you unique. Life is simply too short for that.

Be yourself without fear of prejudice and while doing so keep your self respect intact because it's the only thing in this life we can control. Lastly, find people who get you and appreciate you for who you are and hold on to them as tightly as you can. In general be good to people and they will be good to you.

This blog will stay up as resource for those also on their own journey of self discovery and I can always be contacted via the contact form in the menu should you desire to.

And now it's time to move on to other things.


  1. Joanna, I realize this isn't the first time you have "retired". I want to thank you again for your insights and comments. I realize maintaining a blog is hard to do but know it is appreciated. Once again, I will miss the blog but live with the hope that you will, once again, be inspired to start it yet again. Thanks you!

    1. I have always appreciated and valued your input Leann...thank you!

    2. Need to leave the whole trans issue behind including this blog but if I ever begin to write again it will be somewhere else and will let you know :)
