It’s my first Christmas as Alison, and in many ways I have never been happier.
The blog has died down in recent weeks, but I’m not stressing about it. I’ve been doing a lot of writing, both over at Wattpad and in a private writing group where I’m blazing on a novel. It feels good.
Life just feels good, generally. My first Christmas as myself, both in my heart and on my driver’s license, is something I’ve wanted for a long time. I was so close to it last year, but it was a few days after Christmas that I came out to my kids and more than a month later before I started telling everyone. To be here now, a year later, finally whole … the feeling can’t be quantified. It just is.
There are a lot of things I could be complaining about right now, job and money chief amongst them, but there will be time for that after the holidays. I will also write more regularly on the blog again after the new year. The next few days are about my kids, my family, and my Self.
Happy holidays, everyone.
