 What a year this has been. As I sit back and reflect over the last 12 months, I’m consumed with a great deal of gratitude. I’m so grateful and extremely blessed to have made it this far. So many people perished along the way, faced hardships they never saw coming and clung to the slightest glimmer of hope to get them from one day to the next.

Phrases such as “unprecedented times, black lives matter, essential workers, virtual schooling, zoom meetings, social distancing, and contactless delivery became our new normal. We were forced to limit our social interactions with friends and loved ones to remain in good health, all while marriages and

relationships were tarnished in the midst of it all. Love became a thing of the past and unfiltered emotions were the headliner of the show. Mental demons that were suppressed over the years reappeared with a breakout performance the minute the entire world went silent. I saw people I believed could handle anything burst at the seams and watched as their lives took a dramatic turn.

I also saw blessings in the lives of people that needed it the most. Unemployment benefits ranked the highest they’d ever been, allowing people to put food on the table and maintain somewhat of a normal lifestyle. My business soared for the greater half of the year and I could barely keep up which was nothing but the work of God. I had more money in the bank than I ever had, and even got some great news in the midst of it all (stay tuned). I created some great memories, loved even harder, lost my mind a few times, and accomplished goals I never thought were possible.

Looking back over it all, I made it. I may be bruised, a little less sane, and eager for a fresh start, but I’M STILL STANDING!!!  In the new year, my list of wants and expectations are very minimal. Why? Because what God has for me is for me. No pandemic, string of bad luck, or human being alive can interfere with his work. In the new year, I want to be a better me. Cool, calm, collected, and unbothered. Cheers to the 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 ma
Where has the time gone? I can't believe it's been three years since I launched Breezy Monreaux dot com. This blog means the world to me. I always feel safe and have a sense of calm when I'm here, almost like AA for writers. This is my sacred place. For three years I've had a judgment-free zone full of support and inspiration from others.  I began blogging at a very dark time in my life. My days were long and I found myself in an emotional rut while simultaneously battling anxiety and depression. I'd like to believe that today, I'm in a much better place with room for growth. Last night, I found myself skipping through blog entries I've written in the last three years. As I  revisited entry after entry, I became filled with an immense amount of emotion. My eyes began to water and my physical being began to shake. Tears of joy, sadness, and hope all wrapped up into one.  Tears of joy for all that I've accomplished mentally and physically. Tears of sadness

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 f
