I wish I knew then what I know now. It's a pretty common thing to think as we get older and have more experiences. It's particularly applicable to me as far as sexuality is concerned. It took me 36 years to figure it out and I wish someone would have told me a few simple things that would have made life a little easier to navigate. Not that I regret anything because all of my life experiences have led me to this point and I'm pretty happy where I'm at. I'm not even sure I would have listened had someone tried to tell me these things that it took so long to figure out. In any case though it would have been nice to have had this knowledge.

It's been a while since I've felt pretty and I just can't take it anymore. So I think I'll order up some sexy new heels on the internet. Hope they're the right size right? Can't quite remember, it's been a while. I'll order a couple of new outfits, maybe a pretty dress, a cute skirt, and the perfect top to go with it. Since I don't have the gorgeous shiny locks that I wish I did (when in girl mode), I simply must get a new wig, maybe off of ebay, there are some good deals there (super exciting! what color should I get?). Ah yes and then most importantly I'll carefully select some new makeup. I'll get some foundation (maybe this one will match my skin this time), some blush, maybe a nice eye shadow set, my favorite liquid and pencil eyeliner, concealer, and then the lips, I can't forget the lips. I already know what colors work best with my skin tone, so maybe just a few lipsticks and some gloss to make them shine.

We all know that crossdressing makes us feel great. It's a cathartic experience where we can express our feminine energy and relieve stress. I always feel better and more balanced after I get to try a new makeup look, paint my toe nails, or generally feel pretty in any kind of way. So I've recently realized, that in addition to making me feel good mentally, crossdressing has had an unintended health side effect. It really motivates me to exercise!

Telling someone, particularly someone that's close to you that you are a crossdresser is an anxiety ridden situation to say the least. I've read so many stories by people about how the experience of coming clean has gone well, ok, and unfortunately even not so well. Almost every one of these stories has this major build up of stress energy that leads to an eruption of truth and then a calming of the seas. Sometimes the calming of the seas is quick and easy where the significant other accepts or maybe has already known or suspected the truth. And on the other side of the spectrum the calming of the seas comes after several seasons of hurricanes of emotion. One way or another though an imbalance is reset and the sea becomes navigable, safe, and peaceful. As cliche as it might be the truth will without a doubt set you free. This is not however an advocation of total disclosure to everyone you know. Everyone's situation is different based on location, family, friends, occupation, and all kinds of other variables but that is a different blog post entirely. This post is about introducing your significant other to your beautiful transgender side that has been there all along but until now unable to show herself.

Welcome to my blog, I'm Leah and this is my closet. This is a place that I intend on sharing everything that I can write about that makes me a transgender girl. I've read a lot of other blogs on the subject and they have been exceptionally helpful in my understanding of my own transgender nature. My hope is that this blog will help someone, maybe multiple someones understand themselves better and accept themselves for what they are.
