I had a blast with my friends looking at our future vehicles 🙂 A girl can dream and will!

Can you see me driving in this SUV?

The Women’s Empowerment Expo

July 12, 2014

Cobo Arena

I got up close (and almost personal) with Tyler Perry. He was keynote speaker at the Women’s Empowerment Expo. I must say he definitely did some empowering. He encouraged us to follow our dreams and delete negative energies from our circles.

Of course I was on the prowl for some of Detroit’s eclectic styles. And I found some.

WEE6This naturalista had the hair and  attitude to match.

I really loved her carefree spirit and laid-back girly look with the floral skirt.

“Your arms are showing? I thought you were Muslim. Lol. I’m so confused.” Welp. You’ll stay confused and then blocked. I’m angsty today because well it has been a throw-the-whole-day-in-the-trash kinda day. But, I have time in between anxiety to address confusion. Yes. I put my life on the net for all to critique. That’s cool. Do I wish I could go back to anonymity? Sometimes. Unfortunately folks think that since I’m behind the screen they can assume who I am through only a part of what I share. That’s not fair. Internet people are real people in real life. I share snippets of my life because it helps me cope. Secondly, because it helps other ppl cope. To share things they’ve never shared before or just get it off their chest or feel a little less alone in world. Honestly, I’m not arguing with or appeasing anyone about how I choose to live as a Muslim. I’m past that part of my life where I had to constantly defend my Muslim-ness. What I choose to say. Wear or not. Is between my creator and I. I don’t want unsolicited advice on what I should be doing. I’m sorry but the sleeves or lack of sleeves on a shirt isn’t enough to question my faith. Anyone’s faith! If you’d like to follow a sleeve wearing Hijabi then feel free. Lastly, 👏🏾I’m 👏🏾not👏🏾the👏🏾poster👏🏾child👏🏾for👏🏾all👏🏾muslim👏🏾women. Stop putting me on a pedestal. I’m struggling like the next person. Shit, I’m constantly questioning who I am. I don’t have all the answers. All I can do is try and live my best life. *Adjusts hijab* *Tongue pop* Has anyone ever shoved their beliefs or culture down your throat? How do you handle it? And, do you feel the need to be a poster child for your group? Any race and religion can answer. Let’s chat.
