Happy Two Year Anniversary

While responding to a fellow trans blogger today, I stumbled on a post I posted two years ago tomorrow, April 7, 2013. When I applied that quotation to my situation three months later on July 9, 2013, I set in motion the energy and momentum that was necessary to set me on the “Road to Bangkok” in February 2014, now a year and two months ago.  I offer that quote once again that has forever changed my life from hopelessness to Joy, which you may have noticed is my new chosen middle name.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:
‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!’”

W.H. Murray

Happy Anniversary!

About Deanna Joy Hallmark

I am a post-op transgender woman who has now completed transition and living my life as the woman I was born to be. I have been writing my blog, now titled "A Spy in the Enemy Camp - A transgender woman’s perspective from having lived as a man among men" since December 2011. Originally a record of my process and feelings in transition, last summer in 2013 it took on observations from both sides of the gender binary and now will also be looking at my past life pretending to be the man I never was and how it finally brought me to where I am today, the beautiful intelligent woman I had always believed I should have been since I was little.
