No more weekend warrior, in 2.5 days I'm full-time.
In looking back, my personal blog (http://emergillian.blogspot.com/
) should have had so many more entries. It's been a busy few years preparing for this day.
Since my public announcement (http://wp.me/s6zFT-changes
) went out to friends, family and business contacts, I've received dozens of notes of support back. They range from business-polite positivity, to family expressing acceptance that I never thought would. It's been a tremendously emotional week.
I want to express how important the PE community is, what Chloe has created here is wonderful. Reading others' experiences has been important for me as I weighed each against my own feelings. I'm also involved in Xpressions in Toronto, which is a smaller community but face-to-face instead of on-line. As a group, despite our individual differences it is so important to work together and support each other.
And so here I am, where some of you have been before, and some of you might be one day. On the cusp of integrating two halves of myself into the whole person I was meant to be. I'm excited and terrified at the same time.
2.5 days to go...
