Hustle & Flow


                I’m a strong believer that everyone possess a gift. Some gifts are easily spotted and others you have to dig deep to find. I have the gift of gab which is easily spotted within 3 minutes of knowing me. It’s why you’re currently reading my blog.  It’s also the reason I feel as if I’ve never met a stranger. I have a tendency to make people feel secure, warm and fuzzy and at ease. Once I strike my pearly whites at them, they can’t help but to have a conversation with me. In addition, writing as always been a love of mine. I’d much rather write a ten page paper than to take a math test hahaha. It was after I wrote my second resume when it hit me that I was pretty darn good.

When I first got the idea to start blogging I told myself that it would be my new hustle. I know that with time I’ll become a household name from my work. After writing my first post I ended up going to grab something for my son in the store and at check out I asked the cashier if she liked to read. Her response was yes and I mentioned that I had just launched my blog the day prior and that she should check out my work in her free time. She immediately asked me for a business card which I didn’t have. I proceeded to hand over my red debit card with embarrassment dripping down my face because I felt unprepared. Whoever thought of a business card for a blog? I ran home, got creative with my design and ordered cards. I went back to that same store and left a few with her a week later. When I’m out and about I randomly approach moms and slip them my card. My most recent target was a mom at the cookie stand in the mall. She was super sweet and afterwards Bentley asked me “Mama, why do you always do that to mamas?” I responded “Son, these same cards are gonna have us eating steak in the middle of the week one of these days, just watch and see.”

I say that to say this….When you have a vision for your life you set goals for yourself, you push and you hustle! It’s so important for single mothers to have a side hustle and create additional streams of income for themselves. It’s definitely a process. Some things will be trial and error and you’ll learn as you go but, whatever you’re thinking about doing, let go of the fear and just start. I’m so grateful for the support system I have to keep me motivated throughout this process. Use the gifts you have to get what you want and throughout the process hustle with all your heart mama.

Why Are You Single?

As I'm sitting at work chatting with coworkers about life, I get asked the dreadful question. Breezy, why are you single? I wish I had some profound text book answer for them or hell, five dollars for every time I was asked by people in general. The answer is simple. I just wont settle! Being a single mother dating in 2018 is as complicated as trying to read Mike Tysons lips with your tv muted. Although I’ve struggled with self-image in the past, I’m in a much better place mentally and physically and know my worth. That alone is a powerful weapon. I often look at my friends and family members and think to myself….am I really the only one who doesn’t have a significant other? When will it be my season?
As quickly as those thoughts creep into my head I try to shake them away with positive affirmations. See, I grew up in the church and understand that there’s power of life and death in the tongue. My prayers for my future husband are very detailed and I know deep down, the man that h…

Cloudy With A Chance of Broke

This glass of Walmart wine is giving me life right now. Bougie on a budget is my lifestyle. Since all the water shelves are cleared at Walmart, I settled on this sweet little Moscato. Funny how southerners go straight for bread and water when a storm is approaching. When my son and I lived in Colorado and was expected to get snowed in; sadly all I stocked up on were movies and food. It was nice to be snowed in spending time with the most important person in my life for a day or two. Good times. “Three pairs of underwear for myself…three pairs of underwear for Bentley” I mumbled as I folded our undergarments and placed them in our black rolling suitcase. “Mama, the water is too hot” Bentley yells from the shower across the hall. This is only his tenth time interrupting me within the last five minutes. Why do kids wait until you’re doing something important to need you? Like man, could you wait at least 2 minutes while I get my thoughts together and pack our entire life in a suitcase fo…

Suit Up

April 18th where are you? This queen was born April 10th and for the first time ever I told my girlfriends I wanted to take a trip to Vegas to celebrate. They love me a ton so they all agreed. I think my body is sensing it’s almost vacation time because lately I’ve found myself more irritable that ever. I feel horrible for saying this but even my precious son is aggravating the crap out of me! He calls my name to tell me he’s thirsty when he knows where the kitchen is. I believe he just says mama for the hell of it.
It all started last week when I rushed home to get my new bathing suit from the mail. It took forever but whatever I was super excited to try it on. I think I was more anxious to see if it actually fit more than anything. My weight has been all over the place lately and my waistline has definitely grown the last few months. Ugh…I can never maintain my weight which is so frustrating. Like who the hell can lose thirty pounds in two weeks before vacation? Oh well. It is what …
