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…

Party of 2

Wow, she’s absolutely gorgeous. Each strand of her naturally curly hair sits perfectly on her head. Her eyes are as dark as a summer night, and her skin smooth as butter. I can’t help but notice the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever laid eyes on; as I’m sitting on the sidelines at my sons football practice. This baby girl was a mini queen in every sense of the word. I noticed how well dressed she was as her mother pushed her gracefully in her turquoise Graco stroller. Following behind the two were big bother and dad I assumed. The perfect little family.
As they all walked by, my heart began to flutter and my eyes became dewy. I begin to think of the future and If I’ll get the chance to become a mother again. My son constantly ask for a bother or sister as if babies are something we can go shopping for at our local neighborhood market. His innocence is one of the things I enjoy most about him though. Let’s break this down a little. I’m in my late twenties with a seven year old, diagno…

Tap Into Your Superpower

You know, before starting a new job, meeting someone new, or when you have a big decision to make in general; we often ask people for advice. We ask the questions that deep down we already know the answer to before finally making the decision. Women in general have what I like to call the superpower of intuition.It’s a gift given to us by none other than our creator himself. I’ve always felt like God favored women so much, it was his special gift.            The dictionary defines intuition as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need of conscious reasoning. Many times when you’re faced with situations where you’re not sure where to turn or what to do; the reality is you have all the equipment needed to figure things out, you just have to tap into them. After reflecting on my last post, I decided to tap into my intuition superpower again when it came to a certain someone. I recently met a pretty decent guy. Very intellectual, great career, no children, …
