A Weekend Out and About



I made a point to get out of the house this weekend. Nothing major, went garage selling and then browsed several thrift shops. I managed to stay out and busy for a lot longer than I expected and had a pretty relaxing time.

At one point today I noted to A I still worry to a certain extent about the way I am perceived by others which earned me a disguised look from her… to which I admitted I was a little over sensitive and was told, “you think? I realize I really need to let these things go, to just not worry what others think of me and be myself. I’ll admit I have always had body image issues and worried about other saw me. Coming out as trans hasn’t changed this fact about myself. It now causes issues for different reasons and I need to come to terms with it… I guess this is as much as a self confidence issue as anything. It’s something I need to be aware of and just work a little bit at a time to over come it. Just another little self improvement project. 

On a happier note, I found a cute green top I really liked, so I bought it. Nothing like a nice find to make a girl feel better!

Speaking of clothes, we have a ROSS store which just opened within walking distance of our home. We went and took a look yesterday during the grand opening. I was pleasantly surprised to find they carry my size and had things at reasonable prices. I want to go back and spend some more time looking around, so maybe a nice little day trip to do some window shopping…

    1. This is the first time we’ve had one close. They are revitalizing our area which means bringing in a lot of new businesses within walking distance which is really nice.

  1. It’s extremely difficult to “not worry” about what others may think about you. It’s so easy to say the words: “I don’t care what others think.” But I imagine along with myself that deep down most people who say this, especially those who say it a lot do care. It’s not an easy world and never will be.

    On a lighter note. When I lived in the states, I loved shopping in Ross! 🙂
