TALK TUESDAY #8

Hey beloveds,

It’s Tuesday which means I get to introduce two new beautiful souls to you guys: Xamdi & Courtland! Somali-Australian blogger Xamdi runs a blog about her life as a young Somali woman. It’s really a journal worth reading where she expresses her thoughts and exploration of her Somali culture. Another fav of mine is Courtland. I love following people that inspire me and I can learn from and he fits the profile. It’s hard to box him in so I won’t haha..I absolutely LOVED reading their answers and I’m sure you will too. Enjoy! X

“A free soul, rebellious, conservative, strong young woman and a true gem. Beware though, you might just meet Kanye West.”

 

  • Who are you ?

I am a blogger, nursing student and forever a student of life. Slightly lost at the moment but know this confusion and struggle is part of life- part of being 20. A writer. A nomad who’s currently saving up for her next big adventure. A lover of all things people, culture and adventure.

  • What is your deepest intention?  

To be the best person I can be by working on myself everyday. To fight the temptation of this dunya and work for my Akhirah. To one day be able to change the lives of many people through my work.

  • What is your deepest fear?

Failing. To be living that boring 9-5 with no end in sight.

  • What does love mean to you? 

Hard question, damn! To me love is choosing to be with someone completely, knowing his or her flaws, darkness and light. To me love is more than a feeling – it is a choice. Love also means loving yourself first before someone else- first learn who you are before giving yourself away.

  •  What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made in your life and how have you overcome it?

My biggest mistake would have to be allowing fear of the unknown deterring from going after my dreams. I am still working towards overcoming it to be honest. Allowing myself to acknowledge my fears and realising that it is all part of life. Learning to use those same fears to empower me and push me to achieve my best.

  • What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?

Taking the journey back home and reconnecting with my family, one of the best decisions I have ever made.

  • What would your best friend describe you? 

“A free soul, rebellious, conservative, strong young woman and a true gem. Beware though, you might just meet Kanye West.” – lol, I believe those would be her words.

  • What’s the best advice you ever received?

Be yourself and find the spark that you lost. And this might be familiar but a quote that has helped me in: “Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” ♥

  • How would you like to be remembered?

I would love to be remembered as the one who took care of her loved ones and the one who made her dreams come true through hard work.

”My deepest intention is to free my people, and show the world the Power of believing in “Self”; for true change will only come when individuals decide to finally change themselves – Mentally, Physically and spiritually.”

 

 

  • Who are you ?

I am a Activist, Musician, Innovator, and Entrepreneur. I wear a few other hats, but those are my passions and soul

  • What is your deepest intention?  
My deepest intention is to free my people, and show the world the Power of believing in “Self”; for true change will only come when individuals decide to finally change themselves – Mentally, Physically and spiritually. I strive to be Great not so much for personal recognition, but to show my people “By example” that we too can be Masterful! Many have forgotten the power of our greatness and Ancestral History, but my divine purpose is to remind them of every bit of it!
  • What is your deepest fear?
My deepest fear is leaving this earth without having a child, and experiencing the luxuries of Birth & Fatherhood; for there is many things I would like to teach my future children.
  • What does love mean to you?
Love to me means “unconditional, patient and understanding”, kind of like a relationship between mother and Child. No matter what pain, hurt, or tribulations a Child has seen/caused, there’s always that emotional connection within mothers that forces them to still Love their seeds. This is Because that child is apart of her physical creation, and to hate it would be simply hating themselves!
Love should be transcended in everything we as a people do, for the only way to unite will be through unconditional patience and understanding!
  •  What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made in your life and how have you overcome it?
The biggest mistake I’ve made in my life would probably be doubting myself. At times when I believed a task was impossible I failed 110% of the time, but when I was assured of my greatness success became a addiction I couldn’t shake; I now Feen for opportunities!
  • What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?
Currently to date I would have to say my biggest accomplishment is “waking people up” to the oppressive societies we currently live in today! I’ve graduated from colleges, traveled the world, learned multiple languages and created Inventions, BUT nothing feels better than showing my brothers/sisters the light when its darkness outside!
  • What would your best friend describe you? 
If I had a best friend describe me, I think they would sum me up in one word – “Passionate”!  No matter if im speaking, writing, or transcending a form of Love, I always do it with great Passion to make sure my intentions are felt!
  • What’s the best advice you ever received?
The best advice I have ever received was “Stay Hungry & Humble Thyself”. When a King finds out the true greatness of our conception it’s hard not to feel empowered, and want to ferociously snatch back everything taken from our Ancestors! But In due time we shall rise, respect the process, and properly prepare for “what was once before and shall soon be again”!
  • How would you like to be remembered?
I dont want to be remembered for the riches I accumulated, but the amounts of spirits I touched while I was here on this 3D Planet. I only aspire to Inspire individuals to be the best “THEM” they can personally be! Im not trying to be anybodys Hero or Leader, I Just ultimately want people to Lead themselves!
