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…

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…

Free Myself

Think…think…think…. I’m always thinking. My mind is always pondering my next move. How will I pay for this? That bill is gonna be late. What date was that function? When should I have her resume ready? What day is Bentley’s game again? All these thoughts are bouncing around in my head simultaneously. At times I just want to hold my head and scream QUIEETTTT like they do in the movies.

For those that don’t know, my 9-5 job is a career advisor at a local vocational school, I write resumes on the side for passive income, my son is active in every sport there is, I start a bachelors program within a month, I’m running in a pageant and I’m always on the go. I’m a strong believer that rest is for rich people. I’m willing to work overtime to get where I want to be in life but, sometimes it takes it’s toll on me.

With so much going on, a lot has happened to me physically and emotionally. I’ve gained an unmentionable amount of weight, my anxiety has kicked in so I’m shorter tempered than usual…
