Got an email from Idakoos wanting to send me a customized hoodie. I am in love with hoodies. So warm and snuggly. And it being customized was even better.

It took me a long time to come up with something to put on the front. I’m a writer. This should be easy for me, right? There was so many things I wanted to say, but I wanted the hoodie to reflect who I am to the person whose reading it.

Since hashtags are trendy, I stared with those.

#Curvy

#Black

#Hijabi

Killen’ The Game.

I chose these words because they are who I am. And frankly, I am a quite unapologetic about each one. I’m curvy, so there is a stigma that I’m lazy or unhealthy. I am Black, so I am ghetto or poor. I am Muslim, so I am oppressed or a terrorist. I can be all of those words and be none of the stigmas attached. So I put the last phrase on there to solidify it all. I kill the game, which means I am confident in my abilities to go above and beyond. So boom!

The Idakoos sweater was easy to create and shipped pretty fast. The material is heavy duty and the inside is warm and soft. You have the option to buy one or 100+ Definitely check them out.

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
