2017 Reflections

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

  1.  Went to 3 new states: California, New York, & New Jersey
  2. Had a really dope photoshoot with three of my closest friends
  3. My longest relationship ever
  4. Betrayal/ Forgiveness
  5. I got a big girl job

b. What am I passionate about?

  1. Jesus
  2. Public Speaking
  3. Educating 

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?

  1. Flying
  2. Failing the bar
  3. 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.
