Of all the things that have been used to describe me by other people in my dms and comments, the messages that matter most to me are from people who say I’ve made an impact for them by being visible and just being me.

I know lots of people get a sour taste from social media. It comes and goes for me and I take breaks from posting and don’t worry about posting daily etc. I view it as a space that can simply be fun for sharing joy with other people while also being an extremely important outlet & source of much needed inspiration and solidarity with others who are like you.

The first time I ever posted publicly on social media was on tumblr during the darkest days of my life before transitioning. It truly was stretching my hand out and upwards from a dark pit of despair and loneliness. I was in a dangerous place at the time.

All I can say now is thank you to every single supportive person that has ever bothered to acknowledge my existence and especially those who outright supported and encouraged me to continue to be me.

If you feel isolated, unseen, unheard, and think your experience and life do not matter.. you are wrong. You matter. You are alive. Stay alive and dare to be everything you know you can be. Apologize to no one for it.
Grow. Strive. Persevere.

You are your own worst critic and worst obstacle.

I know, I’ve been there.

Maybe I should ease up on the backstrokes a bit in the pool.. 🤔 Although it is my favorite stroke as I never could properly plug my nose while swimming. Ah well.. all the better to be able to lift my partner off their feet. (Note to self.. find a partner). Also just throwing in a throwback brunette pic as Google photos decided to show one to me today 👩. Tbh, I have actually been having a rough week. I have had to power through work and other personal projects on very little sleep due to insomnia (related to the stress and anxiety I mentioned a few posts ago due to this time of year). I’m okay, just more tired and much more emotional than normal. There is still plenty of good happening for me to attempt to focus on. I hope you all are doing well! (Tumblr people.. see Instagram for the other photos). #maidenariana #decadeofari #hazeleyes #over40andfit #loveyouall #lgbt #transvengers #blondegirllife #twitchaffiliate #fuschiagirl #ihaveapatreon #linksinprofile #instaprofilehasmylinks
