I am so blessed to be living my truth.

I am so blessed to have found love with a wonderful guy.

I am so blessed to be a parent of an amazing child.

Your post brought a big smile to my face. Happy NCOD to you, too!

I remember a NCOD years ago, when I was in college. I was so terrified of being outed or having my actions interpreted as if I was celebrating the day that I hid inside for the duration.

I'm glad I've grown since then. Happy NCOD to you as well.
