Presenting en femme is empowering and absolutely humbling. There’s nothing like spending hours doing your makeup and putting on a new dress and feeling excited to see a gorgeous girl in the mirror…
And then it all falls apart. Our maleness stubbornly appears beneath our foundation, our masculine shoulders aren’t minimized by the pattern on the dress, and our boy feet are a LITTLE too big for our new heels.
This doesn’t happen all the time, but it has happened enough where I never will shake this feeling as I get ready. Even after all these years, now matter how often I dress up, I still wonder if I will see HIM or HER in the mirror.
This morning I am thinking about how this side of us can humble us. But I am also feeling humbled and grateful for YOU. For every subscriber, for every email, comment, my website generates.
When I started blogging I wondered if anyone would ever find, let alone read, what I wrote. I still smile every time I get notification of a comment or of a new subscriber. It’s nice to know people are connecting with what I write and think about. It makes me feel less alone when it comes to who I am, and more importantly, who WE are.
It’s also nice to get recognized by other bloggers, if I am being honest. A blog has to be well-written, it needs to provide content that readers connect with, and needs to be updated regularly. I just learned that this website made to it a few year-end lists which were ranked by traffic, social media followers, domain authority, and freshness.
Again, I am humbled by any sort of recognition, whether it is making it onto a list like these or having a new subscriber. I am proud to be on the same list as many other bloggers that I read and admire.
Thank you for visiting my site. I absolutely appreciate it.
