As the year comes to an end I figured I would share my 2017 reflections with y’all. Self-reflection is very important to me because I am a very introspective person. I am always trying to figure out how to improve. Shoutout to my linesister Chelsie for sending me these bomb self-reflection questions. I tweaked them a bit to better suit me, but here they are.
a. Five things I experienced in 2017
- Went to 3 new states: California, New York, & New Jersey
- Had a really dope photoshoot with three of my closest friends
- My longest relationship ever
- Betrayal/ Forgiveness
- I got a big girl job
b. What am I passionate about?
- Public Speaking
c. Am I happy with where I am in life right now?
Ehh, Sorta kinda. I’ve been feeling kinda stuck here lately. My wheels are spinning because I don’t know what big feat to conquer next. School has been my life forever so now that it’s over, I’m just like….ummm what’s next? Lol I guess it’s on to being a real adult.
d. What moment did I feel most alive in 2017? What was sacred about this moment?
Zip lining through the rain forest in Jamaica. I felt so free. I have anxiety, so it felt good to let go, and overcome the stifling thoughts that often consume me.
e. What are three of the biggest fears that I experienced, that I will not take into 2018?
- Failing the bar
- Fear of getting sick/ a disease
f. What is something I did not complete this year?
Yallllllll, I really really struggle with finishing books. I’m always super thrilled to start a new book, but somehow I seem to never finish. Shoutout to me for finishing two books this year: Crash the Chatterbox (by Steven Furtick), and Small Great Things (by Jodi Picoult).
But now on to the failures. I started reading: Unqualified (by Steven Furtick), The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl (by Issa Rae)- to my defense I actually just started this one, and fully intend to finish it. Lastly I started reading The Five Love Languages (by Gary Chapman)- sigh…I also just started this one, and I am going to finish it lol.
g. What are three things that I will manifest in 2018?
Love, light, & self discipline.
2017, it’s been real. Mamba out.
