Yes, I am ALL of Those Things!

The most freeing realization that I ever had was the realization that I am under no obligation to make others comfortable. I can take up space. I can be loud. I can be seen.

I can take up space. I can be loud. I can be seen.

I can be loud. I can be seen.

I can be seen.

And the labels don’t have to stick, or contradict, or assimilate.

Black

Muslim

Womanist

Liberal

Writer

Closet Fangirl

Ally

Activist

SINGLE (and open to suggestions, lol)

Chubby

Occasional Yogi

And while the world tries to figure out how all of that goes together, I am just chillin’.

Being.

If I had to describe myself, which words would I choose? In a world that is constantly trying to label me and put me into a box that feels comfortable for them, the only labels I am paying attention to are the ones written in my own handwriting.
