2017 Take Aways

It’s been a while and that’s an under statement.
I had/ have to figure things out and I needed a break. Around the end of October, I felt myself falling into a depression. Mostly because I’m not where I envisioned myself being. I lost motivation. I lost hope. I kind of began to lose myself. It honestly seemed like things were piling up against me and there was no way out. More anxiety. More tears than usual. I can’t even begin to describe the feeling that I felt. Annnddddd right when I was about to really slip into the sunken place (lol), I began to drag myself out – legit a few days ago haha. I had a talk with one of my best friends and I really began to re-evaluate things. Anyways, better late than never and definitely great before the new year.

I thought that it would only be fitting that my first post back would be some little tid bits from 2017. And also a picture of my face lol.

🌻 speaking things into existence does work.
🌻 i will prosper beyond belief in 2018.
🌻 i have grown mentally and spiritually, now i’m just waiting on financially. 😂
🌻 i don’t give myself enough credit.
🌻 but i’m lit … okuhh. 😇😏
🌻 i still let other peoples words define how i travel on and through my journey. i’ve gotten better but i need to work on that more for this new year.
🌻 i don’t have the time, patience or energy for relationships (romantic or not) that do not serve me. understand that i wish you the best but please go away.✌🏾
🌻 i should stop eating pizza so much 😂 but it’s soooooo good!
🌻 falling in love with myself was the easy part …
🌻 staying in love with myself through self doubts and lessons not yet learned is the hard part … and i have decided that I am willing to put in that work.
🌻 i need to stop stressing things/people that aren’t for me. i also need to recognize when things and people aren’t for me.
🌻 i get bored easily. i’m either passionate about something or utterly uninterested. i think it’s a libra thing.
🌻 iamworthy. always.
🌻 one of my biggest goals for 2017 was being unapologetic about how i feel and how i move through those feelings and spaces – i accomplished this. i am proud and sooooo not sorry.
🌻 stagnancy and complacency are not my cup of tea.
🌻 i am not everyone’s cup of tea … or choice of liquor for that matter. 😝
🌻 & that’s okay.
🌻 i journey at my own pace, in my own way and quite frankly i’m learning to not give a fuck about that.
🌻 I am. I can. I will – my personal mantra for this upcoming year. 🌻 All in all, Love is art, Art is peace, Peace is freedom and freedom, my loves .. Freedom is everything.

Peace, love & happiness

things i’ve learned about love

  • not all love is a forever love
  • it is okay to start over in love
  • love starts with me
  • love is all around me
  • there are flaws in love, but if its real love .. those flaws won’t matter. those flaws enhance that love
  • love changes you .. its up to you whether that be for the better or for the worse
  • i deserve love
  • i deserve to give love
  • trust and love go hand in hand
  • communication and trust go hand in hand
  • therefore love without communication won’t prosper
  • you can be wrong, i can be wrong … that doesn’t mean that together we aren’t right
  • love can be complicated .. but that’s because we make it that way. love is simple
  • i couldn’t give love to others until i began to give love to myself
  • being appreciative of the love you receive is extremely important
  • being appreciated for the love you give is equally important
  • love doesn’t hurt – we do
  • love is apart of me -in my nature
