That's a Wrap!


It’s the last day of the year and as I sit here snuggled up on my couch getting my Carrie Bradshaw on, I begin to reflect on my 2018 journey. I’m super proud of myself and the lessons I’ve learned. Life is tough. There’s no way to sugar coat it but I know without a doubt I’m a lot tougher. This year has brought many tears, laughs, and blessings. I’m extremely grateful.

I began 2018 ending a relationship but, what I gained in returned was priceless. I’m not perfect by any means. Each day I add a little more tax to my value. Everyone isn’t fit to go to the next level with you and that was one of the hardest lessons to get through. That relationship hit a dead end and because of that I began focusing more on myself which I neglected to do while I was in it. That glow up was something real. I got myself back into church and therapy. I began living for me.

I gave birth to my second baby “Blogging With Breezy.” It was a vision I’d had for so long but too afraid to start. When the Lord says move you better move honey! Writing has been an amazing outlet for me. I love seeing my work in print. It’s an indescribable feeling to see your vision come to life. Who would’ve thought a girl who grew up on a dirt road would be creating her own website, content, logo and providing services to clients?  It’s just the beginning for me but I’m so glad I took a leap of faith and went after my dreams. Shortly after launching my blog I also began working as a freelance writer. From creating a dental blog with an amazing client, to writing resumes. It’s been a great ride and so much more is coming.

My career has been another great change for me in 2018. I started the year working two jobs to support my son and I. One of them being 30 minutes away. Some days I was so tired I didn’t know how I would make it. I loved my jobs though and what I did so it was bearable. I remember an old doctor telling me a long time ago…” Brea, you’re great at what you do, and I appreciate your presence here but never become too comfortable with anything in life.” That struck a nerve in me and before I knew it, I was accepting another position in a completely different field.  I’m set to start that job Jan 2nd. Dentistry has been my hustle for years and I’ve made great friendships and got the chance to work alongside some kick ass doctors along the way. I:’ll miss my patients and doctors but look forward to my new career.



In 2019 my goal is to move in silence when it comes to projects and milestones I plan to crush. In the past, I do believe I’ve talked some of my blessings away because I get so excited lol. I started today by fasting and praying that God directs my path for the upcoming year and to allow me to stay focused on him. I’ll continue working on myself to be a better mom, sister, daughter, and friend. I’ll praise him in the hallway until he opens doors for me in every aspect of my life. 2018, it’s been a great ride. 2019 I’m coming for you boo!   Happy New Year!

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…

Just So You Know

Time is such a precious thing. As a single mom in my late 20s, I’m very selective in how I choose to spend my time. When it comes to dating, there’s a few things I’d like men to understand. Dating a single mom isn’t a science. It’s actually common sense. Below are some of the most important things I need my future prospect to grasp before asking me out…
We’re A Package Deal- My son is my world. You can’t have me without having him. It’s been the two of us for the last seven years. He’s extremely bright and picks up on bull fairly quicklyso I feed off of him as well. Not only are you dating me, but you’re dating us.If you can’t see yourself taking family trips, having family game night, or watching cartoons then we’re not for you honey.
Your Intentions Must Be Clear – As we’re getting to know each other understand that your actions must match your words. To be honest I am not interested in friendships being this close to 30. I have work friends, family friends and patient friends. That’…

Don't Be So Negative

I look at myself as being a pretty darn good mother in general. Society created the label of “single” mothers. Since when did my relationship status have anything to do with my parenting skills? Whether I had a partner or not, the values I instill in my son would be the same. I think they’re e a lot of misconceptions that people have about single mothers in general. Why can’t we just be great at raising our children? Are we allowing these negative connotations to dictate what we’re capable of?
As a single mother, I wish society would understand that we’re some of the strongest human beings ever. People that play multiple roles at once usually get paid big bucks to perform. I can assure you though that I’m no Tyler Perry nor Eddie Murphy and I take my payments for performing in mommy I love yous and sticky-face kisses. We had the choice to take the easier way out and continue with our lives but we chose to do what was right and take care of our responsibility. Just because we’re single …
