Spotlight

N472 Spotlight Blog

Soooo…tomorrow is a big day for me.  Tomorrow, I leave for Baltimore and the SL Mid Atlantic Jam.  Tomorrow I get to met probably 70-80 people from SL in RL.

Tomorrow I plan to begin showing the world the real me…

If you are reading this and you suffer from anxiety or are one of those people who has transitioned, you will probably understand what I mean when I say I feel like the spotlight is about to be on me…and not in a good way.

I’m not saying my thoughts are rational.  I am not saying they are accurate.  I am not saying they are ANYWHERE near the truth.  I am saying they are the thoughts that keep running through my head.

From conversations I have had with others transitioning, what I am feeling is pretty normal.  They have all shared with me that the first presentation with anyone can be utterly nerve wracking as you step out to be seen.  They have all shared with me that as we prepare for that moment, we start noticing 1000 flaws in our appearance that others probably wouldn’t see.  They have all told me that we will pick ourselves apart in every way possible.

I’m going to do it though.  I am going to start showing the world the real me.  I am sure there will be quite a bit to write about from the trip after I get back.

Oh!  In case you have missed it too, I will be taking a little vacation from blogging as well.  I will write more about that later today though when I finish my final post before my trip.

So, with this real life presentation coming, anyone who wants to send prayers, good mojo, supportive juju, whatever…please send it all this way.  I could really use it. ♥
