My first communication from a departed loved one came to me when I was just seven years old. At the time, I didn’t understand it and I chalked it up to being a nightmare.

I was just seven years old when I experienced the death of my beloved Grandmother. She…

My name is Kylie and I am niche-less. And I am just fine with that.

Sticks and stones may break bones, but words can sometimes hurt the deepest. Abuse is not always physical. Sometimes the emotional damage inflicted upon someone can take years of therapy and healing to undo.

It took me many years to learn that you have to love yourself before anybody else will. You need to put yourself first on a daily basis. If you won’t put yourself first, at least focus on yourself every day in some way.

I kissed many frogs and married two before I finally found my prince. I cannot speak highly enough about my current husband, but even our amazing relationship and marriage would flounder without the following ways in which I’ve found to keep it strong.

Everyone has heard about, and has extreme respect for, the gold digger. But what about the gold digger’s lesser know counterpart, the silver locator? Just like being a gold digger, you can also make a respectable living, while not doing any work, by being a silver locator.
