Life Forward – Let Me (Re)Introduce Myself, I’m Melissa Davis
In the modified words of The Rolling Stones, please allow me to (re)introduce myself. Last week, I legally restored my name to Melissa Davis. And it’s good to be me again.
There’s no grudge or anything to prove. It’s just about me being me. Yes, it’s going to be a nightmare to go to the DMV and Social Security office. And will someone please call TSA and Delta on my behalf? But it feels authentic, and to me, that’s worth it.
I tell my kids to be whomever you want. I figured it’s time I followed my own advice.
Pleased to meet you. I hope you remember my name.
