One of my two thousand eighty eight pet peeves is when I ask someone "how you doing" and they say "I'm here". Not good karma! I'm finally to the point of saying you may want to see if there are any openings in the cemetery down the street. Now the newest come back is "I'm living the dream" which is much better to me. In many ways I am living the dream right now.
If you would have asked me ten years ago if I would have the life I have today, I would have never thought it possible for good and bad reasons. Then again, dreams do get mixed in with nightmares.
The bottom line is I don't believe in luck but I do believe in opportunities and everyone has a "glass ceiling" of sorts. Somehow you are given the cards to get to a certain point in your life. How you play those cards decides your life. Very simply, transgender cards were dealt to me early in my life and I had to opportunity to play them later on.
Playing my cards now is simply a way to break my gender glass ceiling and live a dream. The only problem is at 63 (almost) I don't feel even close to getting up from the table. Has to be another dream I can buy with my cards, right?
I have picked a video to play on the Cyrsti's Condo big screen of another transgender person who is playing her cards. Enjoy!
