"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

The Makings of a Native Female

Gallons of iman (the more the better….although the amount fluctuates now and again)
Liberal amounts of afrocentricism
Some humanity and dollops of compassion
A dose of empathy and teaspoon of sweet
At least a kilo of conversation and an ounce of assertiveness
A pinch of freak and a scatter of imperfection
A splash of attitude and a pound of tolerance
A litre of loyalty and integrity
A whole lot of love and humour

Blend together and then add a pack of assorted languages (English, Somali, Swahili and a smidgen of Arabic). Constantly add life experiences as you go along…….

Well WhiteAfrican.....this is my of who I am with a twist (a massive twist)
A detailed version of who I am would have been know me

Update: Inspiration from Angie Stone-Ingredients of Love

Getting fit....or something like it!

Ok…… know how I kept talking about getting fit. Well I finally took the plunge and started. Last night I did an hour of exercising……then this morning I left the house at 5:30am. I did 15minutes jogging and 15minutes brisk walking. I came back home and did half hour stretching then I had a shower and slept. I was so exhausted…..hell I am still a little tired. My body is killing me and I am planning on doing it again. I am crazy!

So…..will fill you in when I feel a lot better inshaAllah

Make dua that I don’t hurt my recovering foot.
InshaAllah Kheyr!
