2018 Goals and Dreams

2018 is the year I can dream again and have goals! My dreams died like I’ve said in previous posts because they didn’t align with who I am. I just thought of that the other day, The reason the dreams I had ended in what seemed like failer is because my true idenity wasn’t a part of those dreams. Now that Sasha is free the dreams I have seem a bit more realistic and possible, do you know how refreashing that is? 2018 is going to be MY year, I’m going to focus on my self, I’m going to allow myself to say no when I have to, and I’m going to live out my life how I feel my life should be lived out. It’s not up to a ministry leader to tell me what to do anymore and close me off the possibilities to better my life, I’ve had enough of that it’s about me now folks.

My “Goals and Dreams” for 2018 looks a little bit like this:

  1. Go out compleatly dressed up in my feminine atire including makeup
  2. Travel to Austin, Tx for the weekend and be “myself” the entire time
  3. Come out to my parents
  4. Get a Job
  5. Get an apartment
  6. Get a full body wax
  7. Get my nose pireced
  8. Get a floral tattoo
  9. Get this blog OUT OUT OUT to LGBTQA+ communities world wide
  10. Read atleast 30 books
  11. Write 5 songs
  12. Work out
  13. Get a Yoga membership
  14. Completly remove the toxic people out of my life

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
