Blogging was what I needed.
I needed a place to say what was really on my mind.
I needed a place to not be seen as a Muslim.
I needed a place to not be seen as a homeschooling mother.
I needed a place to not be seen as a champion for the rights of Black people.
I needed a place to not be seen as a business owner or boss.
I needed to be vulnerable and passionate and confused and unsure.
I needed a place to be seen as Sister P, who is all of those things but not just any one of those things.
I am a person who has a variety of interests and has her own opinions about a lot of things.
I needed a place to practice being myself and not allowing people to "pigeon hole" me.
I got that.
I got what I needed from this excercise and met some great people along the way.
If you haven't realized it, this is my public good bye.
