Don’t ask me to behave.
You should know by now that I get pleasure out of going against the grain. That I can look anyone in the eye and not feel a shred of shame for who I choose to be.
Do not wait for an apology.
There isn’t one coming.
I’ve spent a lifetime appeasing, and those days have been over for a long time now.
Silence will not be making a reappearance. At least not the kind that is born from guilt. Or shame. Or powerlessness. The kind of silence society encourages and even celebrates, labeling it ‘niceness’.
I am not nice. I am real. And real is not concerned with being nice. I can be kind, and I can be soft, and I can maintain respect. But make no mistakes about me — I am not here to soothe your ego. My intensity may burn, but I never promised anyone I was here to play the good girl. ~ Shadia Saad #wildbeauty
“Change or die.” Ted X talk I delivered at the Fox Theatre in Detroit in front on 5000 people. I did not do it alone! My programming coach and my newly found nutritionist have taught me it is never to late in life for a lifestyle change ! There is not one day that goes by that I don’t looked to improve and learn from those around me. Even after 25 years in the business 11 owning my own facility. Feeling blessed🙏🏻. #tedx#tedxdetroit#transformation#goals#nutrition#intense#educated#food#foody#changeordie
