After weeks of anticipation – more actually if you consider my desperate need to attend a conference of any sort in English – it was finally time. I did it! I attended the Release Your Inner Queen of Sheba by Heba Alshareef, jazaha Allahu kel khair.
To sum it up in as few words as possible, I’d say it was eye-opening. Life-altering. It forces you to realize your potential. To face yourself, and bring yourself to task. There really is no room for self-deception, or shyness at a conference like that.
And it was empowering! God, did I leave that room desperately optimistic. Hoping against hope.
Can I do this? Can I face myself?
Well I took the first two steps. I attended the workshop, and I bought the book. And perhaps most importantly, I was honest with myself – sometimes brutally so – today. InshAllah. Only time will tell!
72 hours to save myself!
