    My visit to the Lawyer and ongoing crumbling marriage woes.

    Here I am, back again with the next installment of, "Gaining Wisdom and Freedom after Betrayal" I am seriously thinking that when the time is right I may just sit down and write a book. Everyone thinks they have book worthy material from their lives. I've no doubt that this is no...

    Mine is a journey of self improvement

    and discovery. It is spiritual and emotional as well as physical. I have been on this journey for a long time. The first year to year and a half the steps were small and slow. Now my strides are longer and more meaningful. We are all different and take different paths. We...

    We are all on a journey. For some, this journey comes with minimal interruption. They go through life with little cares or problems, and when they come across roadblocks, they pass them without thinking. For others, their journey is filled with devastation, death, starvation...

    Love yourself unconditionally,

    just as you love those closest to you despite their faults. If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you! The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do...

    The past few weeks I've gone through whirlwinds

    of emotion ranging from confidence, the sense of security that comes from that illusion of being fully in control of my life, happiness, exhaustion,…to a complete 180: feeling ridiculously stupid, sad, in disbelief of my own irresponsibility, and my old friend fear kicking me...

    A little over a week ago,

    I lost my job. Another situation where a non-profit loses its funding. :/ I've gotten to the point were I'm getting tired of working for others and wanting to start something I can profit off of. I look at my life and the lives of my loved ones, and just get so disappointed and...

    Doing Better Then Ever.

    If someone would have told me I would be divorced and happily involved with a woman who enjoyed and sought out my company in less then a year, I would have thought they were on drugs. As it turns out, they would have been spot on. I feel better then I ever have and my son is...

    Hello. You can call me Gemina.

    That's not my given name, of course, because I'm an MtF crossdresser. I signed up for EP because I frequently end up here when googling items pertaining to my own explorations regarding gender and self. In any event, I hope to make some friends, share a little, and learn a lot.

    what works for me & what doesn't. I'm still not there yet. I still have many mountains to climb, both big and small. But after I've climbed one, I exhale, then prepare to climb another. I am getting stronger, in a battle with my weaknesses. My experiences are chapters of my...

    The Road Ahead.

    I located a condo that will do well for my son and I. No definite takers for the house as of yet but I do have a committed renter. Renting it out is a more preferable solution for now. House prices have dived and I would rather not give my home away. I fly to Nevada on...
