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 was my father’s mother, my only local grandparent, and she adored me because I was the baby of the family. And, even then, I obviously had the best personality of the whole bunch to boot.

My grandmother’s funeral was not only my first funeral, but also my first experience with…

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

Humor is what I tend to lean towards, because that’s how I cope with everything in my life, but you will find some poetry, real drama of mine, and an abundance of the ludicrous in my writings.

The following is a list of my content that means the most to me, not necessarily the most popular. I can’t force people to recognize genius. I’m kidding.

Despite what most people portray on Medium, I am not here to get rich. I am doing this because I…

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.

I have always considered myself to be a strong, independent, and educated woman. So, no one was more shocked than I was when I became a victim of emotional and physical abuse. Abuse that was handed out so frequently, yet so slowly, that I morphed into a completely different person, little by little, without noticing.

It happened so extremely slowly. I was so blind to it…

Articles are meant to share information, tips, and opinions. This one is important to my heart. It is a list of the items I think should be made to be common sense knowledge at a minimum.

Teach it in school, teach it at home, blare it from loudspeakers in North Korea, and replace all media ads with it. I don’t anyone to be able to claim ignorance anymore. We are all put on this Earth for a reason and I know what mine is.

Best case scenario, this would become criminal activity. I have about 18 laws I will recommend…

Stress is the biggest serial killer this world has ever seen. Or at least since that fat serial killer clown died.

Stress is the underlying cause of many diseases, conditions and violent acts. In my opinion, we need to start putting more emphasis on controlling stress and less on cleaning up stress’ aftermath. With that revolutionary approach in mind, I made a list of the things that help me deal with my extreme stress level. I have six kids in addition to my full-time job so I am the human version of stress. …

I am whole and broken.
I am nothing and everything.
I am uncertain, yet peaceful.

Insecurity abounds when awakened, deprived of warning.
Awakened and alone, supposing most will stay in slumber.
Asking no questions, for the answers are within.

Embracing solitude, attaching to nobody.
Isolated, getting acquainted with me.

Matters whispered in traces to myself.
For nobody would believe, until immersed.
They must slumber until woken.

Simple explanations turn to confusion as my words find air.
The answers are far and wide, near and shallow.
The secrets vanished, answers obvious.

Seek silence to find yourself.
There is no other way.

Oxygen is not visible to the human eye yet we still know it is there. Without the aid of a microscope, we could not see cells or bacteria, yet we still believe we have them coursing through our veins. We cannot see love, but we can feel it. These are responses I give people when they tell me they don’t believe in the third eye, otherwise known as the sixth sense.

A brief background on my experience

I was like the above naysayers once. I was actually like them until last November. …

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.

How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you. — Rupi Kaur

I have spent years treating myself like a worthless piece of trash for the benefit of others. I have said yes, out of guilt, when I wanted to say no. I have neglected time with my family in order to put more…

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.

All married, or long-term couples, go through stagnant periods in their relationships. There are predictable cycles of affection and intense love followed by boredom and complacency. It is up to us to recognize these valleys in our relationships and fix them as they occur. …

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.

If you are anything like I once was, a young girl wanting riches and fame with no work ethic, this information will prove to be invaluable to you. You are so welcome, in advance.

Gold Digger

Before I give you the definition of a gold digger, I would like to correct a common misconception. This…
