brena's breakthroughs is space for those of us, myself included, who strive to be as timeless as a rose and as radiant as a sunflower. we live in a world where it can be difficult to identify and pursue a passion and it can also be difficult to find that network of like-minded people. i want to be in that network for you.
feeling whole, healed, and like the best version of myself is a continuous process, and part of that destination is in the journey itself. this website is my platform to show different aspects of that journey. the primary way I choose to do this is in the breakthroughs - my blog posts. I discuss a wide range of topics while striving to be transparent in my journey in the hopes that it will encourage others to do the same.
being a boss and having a lasting impact on people is a multi-faceted affair. in the lifestyle portion of the website, I focus on different ways to achieve the boss up we're chasing together. taking care of business is a must, but so is taking care of yourself.
as I said before, I hope to use this website as a tool to be transparent about my journey to the woman I hope to become. professionally speaking, that woman is a physician. the road to medicine is not easy, and I chose to share my walk on this road and other resources on the brena b, md section of the website. the road to Dr. Black Barbie is a long and hard one, but nothing worth having comes easily.
I strive to become someone who is timeless, radiant, and relevant in a way that positively impacts the lives of people I may never meet, and I hope this space reflects that desire. I hope that by exploring this space you see my walk, relate to it in some way, and make the decision to actively begin or continue in your efforts to your best self regardless of where you may be in this moment.
remember, the life you live is the journey, not the destination. make the most of it while you can. you owe yourself that much.
you are worthy. you have purpose. your life matters.
grown - the current soundtrack to my life.
Lots has changed since my last post and the last month has been interesting for me to say the least. I moved, started school, and I’m basically grown now. Not college grown anymore, where all my basic needs were met through outside sources but I still had most of the freedom to do what I wanted. Grown grown. All the freedom, all the responsibility. This is a huge transition for anybody but doing this transition in the middle of a pandemic takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
