2017 Reflections

WARNING: Parts of this post my sound like a cliché NYE post…get over it lol

As this year comes to a close and we begin to make our New Year’s resolutions, goals, dreams, visions or whatever you call them, I just want to take a moment to reflect on 2017. For me, this year came with A LOT  of growth. I made a conscious effort to work on my mind, body, soul, and my goals. I made time to stop and smell the roses, hang with my friends and enjoy my family.IMG_3427

So many things came out of this year that I never expected. I went on unplanned trips. I cancelled plans to stay in the bed and sleep. I went out on school nights. Became an aunt for the second time. I reconnected with friends that I hadn’t seen in years.Got back on my fitness journey.  I STARTED THIS BLOG! I faced so many fears and realized that I can do anything I put my mind to.


Now 2017 definitely wasn’t all roses and sunshine. I spent a lot of time facing myself and discovering who I really was and I must admit, I didn’t like who I saw most of the time. I battled horrible thoughts, depression, anxiety, loneliness but I made sure that no matter how bad I felt that I climbed up out of those places as fast as I could. And once I was out I made sure to look back and figure out how I got there and how I can stop myself from slipping back there again.IMG_5558

No, I didn’t figure my whole life out in this one year, no, I’m not completely perfect but I’m starting to get a better idea of who Lenesha is. 2017 was definitely a good and bad year all in one and I absolutely cannot wait to see what 2018 brings!!

See you next year!
