Top 5 lessons that 2017 has taught me…

I seriously can’t believe that 2018 is almost here!! I want to reflect on some things that I learned in 2017. I don’t make resolutions any more instead I just focus becoming a better me all around but I must say I am exited for 2018 and all that it will bring!


All money isn’t good money

There was a couple get money fast opportunities that came my way in 2017 and they all ended up doing more way more harm than good which brings me to my next lesson…


I’m always getting so worked up on things that I feel I should have accomplished or I allow myself to get really upset when things don’t happen when I want them to. 2017 has really proven to me that somethings you just can’t rush.

I learned to not let anyone steal my good energy.

The older I get the more exhausting disagreements/arguments make me. Like I feel so DRAINED afterwards. The last big blow out I had with someone I made a promise to myself that it would be my last time I gave anyone the time or day to steal my positive energy.

It’s okay to not be okay….

Life is no walk in the park. I often put this pressure on myself to be strong ALL the time. I think to myself I have to be strong for my friends. I have to be strong for my family. I have to be strong for my husband. I have to be strong for my kids… 2017 has taught and encouraged me to take a step back and enjoy ME time. I don’t have to always have to be the problem solver and pep-talker. It’s okay to have bad days. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to just not be okay.

Family can be OVERRATED

Sometimes we place such big expectations on family members. 2017 has taught me that just because someone is your family doesn’t mean they always have your best interest at heart or that they are 100% genuine in what they do or say. Less expectations equal fewer disappointments.

  1. Awesome! I would love to share this with my audiences on Facebook, Google (+) & Twitter. The lessons of life. Family is beyond overrated, I stop setting myself up for disappointments when I lost everything I owned always looking out for others. When I was at my lowest I couldn’t even get a chicken box from them ragdolls…lol. Its enough being strong for self, always take care of you. The best way to get at people is to feed them with a long handle…always kill with kindness…Joy is yours! Patience is a growth experience & it will be tested until it can be mastered. People are so scammy now-a-days so I really try my best to research. This was really a great post for me because these are lessons I learned well while going through a storm in life.
