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. …
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.
Before I give you the definition of a gold digger, I would like to correct a common misconception. This…
I wrote this in the hopes that one day you might read it. If you do, would you care? Probably not, but I will be happy just knowing that you read it. It needs to be said.
I remember when I took the kids and left you like it was yesterday. It had been years in the making, but I was still surprised that I found the courage to ever do it.
It’s ironic that when you finally turned your abuse from me to somebody else, I grew a backbone and left you. With that being said, I…
There could be different.
There may be better.
Now is all that matters.
Each person the only one.
Feigning for the past.
Reaching for the future.
When all that matters is now.
The seconds never to be repeated.
The day never to come again.
Soak up the sun with your son.
Push the thoughts aside.
All that matters is now.
Now will never come again.
Tomorrow, stop seeking.
Let life come to you.
Or you may pass each other by.
I wrote this poem, because I have spent most of my adult life chasing money instead of focusing on what…
