It has been interesting to try on my clothes and see what works and what does not. My tomboyish style lends itself well to my revised body contour but there is still an adjustment period with it all. I have yet to try on the dresses I never really liked wearing anyways. I will take on that task at some point. The truth is that, save a few photos taken long ago, I have no recollection of what my chest looked (or felt) like for the 32 years before my (preventive) double mastectomy 8 years ago. I feel as if this is how I was meant to be. So I am trying to remind myself to be in this moment in time and this iteration as if it were the only one. It certainly is the only one that matters now.
