I Feel Like A Woman


Mamas! When was the last time you put on that sexy black dress, beat your face to the gawdz, put on those spankx and went out for a night of fun? Can’t remember….don’t feel bad, I cant either. Single mommy life hasn’t allowed me to indulge in a night like that in quite some time. I told myself that I’d do better with making more “me time” for myself. I enjoy being a mom but I don’t want to lose who I am as a person in the midst.

Even though I’m not heading out for a night on the town 3x times a month, I still do things that make me feel super sexy. It’s so important to keep yourself up. I may not have tons of money in my purse but you’d never know unless I told you. When I leave my house I’m always looking fairly nice. My hair is done, my nails are manicured, my clothes are clean and you can’t tell me I’m not sexy honey! I dedicated this year to focusing on my health and the results have given me a boost in confidence like no other. I can finally get into a deep stretch without my stomach being in the way! Exercising in itself makes me feel good. I feel myself getting stronger by the day and I can’t wait to see what I look like in a year. On Fridays after work I usually head to Chick-fil-a to grab lunch. I live for Chick-fil-a Fridays! Then, I head home to enjoy quiet time while Bentley is still at school. I get to eat my food in peace without a little human asking me for it; after they’ve already eaten theirs and the feeling is indescribable yall. Every 4-6 weeks I even head to Luna’s Wax and Beauty over in West Ashley for a little torture but hey it’s worth it. 😊

All these things contribute to me feeling good about myself.  Mamas, find something you enjoy that makes you feel beautiful. Do things for yourself without your children.  You’re more than a mother. To take care of your kiddos you have to take care of yourself first. You’re worth it boo.

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, …
