It's now been five years since my breast reduction and let me tell you: I still love them. I feel the same about them today as I did five years ago, which is pure joy. I admire them everyday, honestly. I admire them before I put on my bra. I admire them when I am [...]
Warning: slightly graphic image of a wound, under a bandaid, but still a wound I got the Nexplanon Implant and had it removed four months later Due to my inability to access birth control as it was prescribed to me (prescribed for continuous use for mood and migraines) at any pharmacy where I previously lived [...]
I tricked myself into loving my body using a variety of methods and steps. I say tricked, but I really mean I trained myself to look at and think about my body in neutral and positive ways. Its not easy and I have a long ways to go but I can confidently say I don't [...]
I don't know about you, but I am emotionally exhausted. The global covid-19 pandemic is emotionally exhausting as much as it is scary. And if you are trying to be responsible and stay informed, the news updates everyday can be overwhelming. I have decided to go about my days expecting that everyone I know feels [...]
It's been a minute since I last wrote or published anything for Brette's Bliss because I've been moving (and a few other factors).

I have not posted in a while. I lost the motivation to write, edit, make images, and post. Everyday I thought, "you should work on your blog." It only takes a few hours a week to create one post, why not just do it? The answer was simple, I didn't want to. I lost my motivation.
I just graduated! Actually, I graduated back in August (Like I said I would in my graduation post here). It's been over a month now and I will be honest, life after graduating is not what I thought it would be, while also exactly like I thought it would be. I used to be scared [...]
As someone who writes a lot about my breast reduction and is a huge advocate for the surgery, I get shitty people posting shitty comments that I always delete (I read and approve all comments on my content) because I don't need that kind of negativity and no one else does. 100% of these comments [...]
