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. …
Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It gives a voice and a platform to anyone willing to engage. — Amy Jo Martin
Legends say that every soul born is born for a reason and with a purpose. This means the seemingly useless do indeed have a purpose, even when that purpose may not be clear. With that being said, the same goes for almost everything. For example, the darker side of the internet is something most are aware of by now.
We have been extensively warned about the dangers of social media and the damage it can cause. But where…
Money is a tool. Used properly it makes something beautiful; used wrong, it makes a mess! — Bradley Vinson
One of my mother’s favorite things to say throughout my life has always been, “Do as I say, not as I do.” It is essentially a classier way of saying, “I’m not going to be a role model, so look elsewhere in your life for that.” It is a great way to escape leading by example. It is also a method that I have adopted as my own, even though I hated hearing it growing up.
Following her example, I would…
Human’s identify as everything, but realize little.
For people will take above all else, grumbling when they give.
There are those that will not laugh at pain, their love a beacon.
Find those flowers pushing through the cracks to shine for us.
Protect your time, for it will not come again.
Need nothing, for you alone are the source of all you need.
Hiding blind behind a false facade, trying to wade with the masses.
A false reality preventing a life.
Open fresh eyes to the heaven within. Heaven lives jointly with hell, in a place only you can get…
Despite what we are made to believe, there is enough money and success for everyone. If we want it, we just have to learn how to work for it. We must feel with every fiber of our being that we deserve it in order to manifest it. Believe it, take actionable steps and soon you will take your piece of the financial pie. As a single mother, on and off, for the last twenty two years, I have learned how to struggle and how to survive on very little money and zero child support. I have learned to love working…
