In Review: 2017

In Review: 2017

What worked:

1.) I finally decided to give myself a chance. To start holding myself accountable and to actually get things moving. God really put a fire under my a** and I’m so grateful.

2.) My hair

 

3.) Greater expression of my creativity

4.) Boldness

5.) Greater Self awareness

What didn’t:

1.) Self hate

2.) Giving people more time than they deserved in my life.

3.) “Talking”

4.) Working Out and then going to Chicken Republic Right after

5.) Bosses that we’re bullies

6.) Pride

7.) Donald Trump and his dusty cohort

8.) “Church people”

9.) Lagos Uber drivers

10.) Denying colorism in the black community

11.) POC saying: “I don’t see color”.

Overall Grade: A+++ as with every year, there are Ups and downs, but Glory be to God, it always ends beautifully, as it should!

I've met so many beautiful people between January 1st and now (whether in person or virtually) and I'm eternally grateful for you all. Thank you so much for the support, feedback and love and here's to our best year yet: 2018. See you in the new year! Oh, and can you believe that this baby is turning two?!

Thanks for an amazing year.

-Eyek
