Recently I've read some posts here and at other places that some feel that they are too old to transition or to make the changes needed to be the people they want to be. It's never too late to make positive changes.

Change is not easy but consider the alternative. Do you wish to be miserable and unhappy or do you desire to be happy, content, and full of vitality. Society will tell you that when you're in middle age, you're no longer productive or that you have nothing of value to offer. What gets me is that society thinks that we do not have the creative ideas or the desire to make change. Yes we can change and we can have an impact on others.

When I read posts I'm always happy for the success folks have experienced in their lives. I started cross dressing in my mid fifties. I returned to school at 54, graduated with a bachelor's degree at 59. I came out last June to my congregation as a transgender woman. I was sixty three. I know of a woman who transitioned at age 77.

Age should never be barrier to achieving your dreams. If you need to transition, do it. Do the the things that you have put off for so long. Be around positive people who will encourage you.
