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
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
