Ladies, Ladies… Is it the holidays already? That means the year is coming to a close and how I look forward to what a new year can bring, I also get very anxious about it. The uncertainty of it all gets to me, but just for a moment. 🙂 2017 was a year of truth for me, I can say this has been a year that I found out some very unsettling things about myself; things that were always there BUT I chose to ignore until I had to face a situation that could have caused me everything. Talking about a serious wakeup call, I have had them before but this one was very different. I also had some great times and did a lot of purpose building, trying for once to figure out who Tiffany Chavonne Jones is and who she wants to be.
I learned that walking in one’s truth is liberating and scary all in one, that affirmations really do work and how to revisit your passions that you put on the shelf of self-doubt all those years ago. That I have a purpose and it was in my face all along, I just gave it the cold shoulder. I will forever be young, just need a tune-up! 🙂 That flying is actually one of the most invigorating experiences one can experience once you face your fear of flying face on, thanks to the husband for making me face that. That math is my (sensor). Despite it all, 2017 has been a world wind of ups and downs and I will be forever grateful for everything that came my way in 2017.
A few more lessons from 2017: I’m one tough cookie, failure will not own me or define me, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never EVER hurt me, I have a lot of great ideas I need to bring into existence and my tribe is like no other. Forgive those who have hurt you, no need carrying scares around that cause your soul to be ugly and unforgiving. Tiffany Haddish is funny as heck and goes out with girlfriends, it cleanses the soul. I can keep going on and on… 2017 was prepping me for what’s to come in 2018 and as I close out my last blog for 2017, I hear Shonda Rhimes voice in my head “I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. And oh yeah “Don’t call me lucky. Call me badass.” (The year of yes).
Cya 2017…. Hello, the year of yes! 2018…. Til next year, may each and every one of you have a great holiday season!
