I know, its been a long time. A very long time. Many of you will know what’s happened and those that don’t? Look at my Facebook page and Twitter account. This, though, is a special blog entry. Today I had my surgery date. I’m not revealing when it is until closer to the date but its probably one of the biggest days of my life. I’ve been waiting for this day for forty-seven years. All of my life.
Just lately, people have been denying me. Denying how I feel. None of these people are my friends. None of these people know me. None of these people know of me. They just deny my existence purely based on their own prejudices and beliefs. This has to stop.
I live. I exist. I feel. I cannot change who I am or how I feel, but you can. The way I am and the way I feel is built into me. I am a woman. If you disagree, look towards your own feelings, towards how you were brought up. Look towards what life asks of you. Do you find that your life is bad? Change it. Do you feel life dealt you a bad hand? Deal yourself a good one. There is always an avenue. Like Captain Kirk in Star Trek: Wrath of Khan, there is no such thing as a “no-win” situation. You just have to think your way out.
To be honest, I just kept at it. I didn’t allow any situation to put me down. If you can, be like Kirk. If not, be like me. Believe there is something better.
Just do it.
