Being Just You

"Cheating yourself of the life YOU have to liveDeprives others of that only which YOU can giveYOU have much more to offer by being just YOU Than walking around in someone else's shoes"                                                                   -Ellen Bailey 

A wonderful reminder of what we have to offer when we are able to be our true selves <3

Transgender Day of Visibility

Yesterday we celebrated Transgender Day of Visibility (I think the actual yearly date is March 31st, but heck, we should be celebrating this holiday every day!) in Lakewood. It was a lovely evening consisting of a panel of four people, each telling us their amazing stories, and then time for a question and answer portion. I would venture to say that the chatting afterwards was the best part. Getting to know people in our community after such a positive experience was an excellent way to spend a Friday evening!

Take time to do what makes your soul happy

I needed this reminder this week! Sometimes the pressures of everyday life make it hard for us to stop and take time for what we need. I hope we all remember to act on this more often...
Have a wonderful week!
Trust in the process, trust in yourself!

Thank you!

I just want to take a minute to give a big THANK YOU to City Life! Despite the cold, snowy, and slushy weather today, they still made it to the Gender Identity Center to clean and organize our storage shed! They worked hard in this icky weather for over two hours. Bravo to City Life!
