The Blueprint

Man o man have I missed you guys. As you can see from the gap in blogs, life has been pretty busy. I recently made myself a promise that I'd get back to doing the things that truly make me happy amid my busy lifestyle and I'm going to do just that. 

As you already know, I'm doing the absolute most. Staying busy keeps me focused and I honestly have less time to think about life. I haven't decided if that's a good or bad thing though. Working, running a business, motherhood, school, volunteering, and recently being inducted into a sorority has kept me on the go recently, it's an amazing journey, and I'm super grateful for it all. 

Now sit down sis, let's have some tea boo. Girl, I'm finally 30! I say that with a magnitude of emotions


because I felt every emotion known to man leading up to the big 3oh! Excitement, sadness, anxiousness, fear, apprehension, and so much more. I even felt guilty for being emotional about the situation. So many people I know never got the chance to see 30 years old so I was praying hard that I made it, but I couldn't see what happened after that. 

Growing up I had this blueprint of life and everything it would offer me. Married by 25, 3 boys, a beautiful home, nice car, great career, and everything else I felt I needed in between. I'm now 30 and healthy relationships are foreign to me so marriage is nowhere in sight. I have a great career, a loving son, a decent car, and I'm happy for the most part. For so long I had this false sense of reality to think I could live my life according to this imaginary blueprint. Of the long list of things I etched into my brain at such a tender age and associated with true happiness, very few were checked off. As a matter of fact, I derailed the path and began making a new course with new objectives along the way. I've accomplished things I never even knew I wanted with poise and grace. 

I'm blessed to be living a great life at 30. It's an honor to have someone call me mom, I want for nothing, I'm independent, self-sufficient, and most of all... a complete BAD ASS! At 30, I consider myself to be someone who knows what they want out of life. Even if that varies at times, that's okay. 30 and thriving, I'll drink to that!

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

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

If This Is It...

As I begin to think about the future, there’s so much uncertainty. Of course I have tons of dreams and goals and through blood, sweat and tears I’ll do my very best to accomplish them. I was taught that exercising faith is a must in life. I’ve always had a problem living in the moment so I’d like to take a second and do just that. Like the gospel song says “Lord if I ten thousand tongues, I could not praise you for what you’ve done.” Even though some days are a struggle and I have no clue how I’ll make it to the next, I’m grateful for the things I have. My son’s in good health and I’ve made a home for him that’s   filled with love. All of his jeans are a husky size so that reminds me that I’m able to provide him with meals daily. He’s the only child so he gets what he wants for the most part. I’m grateful I’m able to not only give him the things he needs but the things he wants as well. When I come home and flip the light switch; my little townhome lights up and I’m grateful f
