Domestic Violence Awareness: Breezee Morrison, Mrs. New Mexico – Thriving in her Survivorship

 

Image result for breezee morrisonBreezee Noelani Morrison was born and raised in Cloves, New Mexico. At the young age of 2 years old, she returned to her birthplace in Hawaii. As she grew into womanhood, she encountered domestic violence and the brokenness that came with it. While it was traumatizing, she was able to break the chains that held her captive of abuse nearly a decade after the occurrence. That is when she took her power back moved to Arizona where she developed and breathed life into the program “Confidence Is Beauty” which is centered around rebuilding brokenness in women. Through the program, she empowers, inspires, displays and communicates the importance of/for healing for one to move above and beyond pain. She also uses the program as a platform to educate our families and communities on the importance of domestic violence awareness and fighting it.

Breezee breaks the chains and monotony surrounding the assumptions of what the face of a victim looks like as she does not look like her “Been Through”. Breezee Morrison a/k/a Mrs. New Mexico International 2017 wears her crown and she does it confidently. She shares that while her divine purpose was revealed to her years ago, it was not until she competed for Mrs. International that she found her “Purpose-Driven Voice”. When she thinks about the twenty years of pageantry experience she has under her belt, it is evident that her heart belongs to God and family.

Beyond her beautiful face and humble demeanor, she is a loving wife, mother, and co-pastor. Alongside her husband and best friend of over 13-years, she lives a purposeful and encouraging life with transparency. Because she values her faith, family, fitness and traveling she is mindful of how she manages her time. While passionate about pageantry she is just as passionate if not more about bringing awareness to domestic violence. She travels and uses social media as tools to bring awareness to the growing epidemic. Breezee shares “Domestic Violence thrives in the shame of silence” which is why she brashly and self-assuredly shares her testimony with elegance and openness.

To add fuel to her “Sparking Fire” Breezee has partnered the Confidence is Beauty Movement with the nonprofit organization, No Longer the Face Foundation, as their Domestic Violence Awareness Ambassador. Together the organizations aspire to bring awareness to all forms of abuse and help restore and heal the world one person at a time. Through experience, she has learned that those in pain are stronger with the help from those who have encountered it – through testimonies like Breezee’s women/men/youth is empowered to take their voices back.

Breaking Chains: Broken but Not Bound

Do you realize how absolutely Good the God we serve (Mark 10:17) really, really is? If you do not,  please allow me to take a moment and remind you. God allowed you to wake up this morning, breathing air into your lungs. He blessed you with a roof over your head and food on your table. Shall I continue?

God has opened doors that you probably never imagined would be opened. He healed your body of disease and illnesses. He uplifted your spirits when they fell. He saved your life when you “thought” did not want to be here.  He gave you purpose when you did not know your life had one, now do you see how Good, Awesome, Amazing our God really is? As the days, weeks, months, years and decades pass us by, we are reminded of God’s goodness. He continues to bless us over and over again!

Using myself as an example, God has revealed my purpose for being here on earth, He has guided me down paths that I was not comfortable walking down and he has taken me through the trials and tribulations and I came through triumphantly. He has shown me that “My Testimony” can change, shift and save lives. He has placed people that are “for” and “against” me in my path – gifting me with discernment.

I am not a victim – I am a Survivor

If you have experienced abuse, lost a loved one to death, overcame an addiction, struggled with suicide, had bouts with depression, and traveled through peaks and valleys, you are stronger today than you were yesterday. The things that you endured made you the “Survivor” that you are today. You are not a “Victim of any Circumstance” because you weathered your storms and will continue to. Keep your faith in the most High and embrace your strength, look into the mirror and love the reflection that you see without conditions – Sonya McKinzie

When I look in the mirror

“When I look in the mirror – I see the definition of a Purple Orchid – a flower that is regal, respectable and admirable. God did this and He will do it for you. You can use your experience to strengthen others – you are a living testimony and because this is so – give God the grace to mold you into the purposeful artifact that you were born to be.” ~ Sonya Mckinzie
