Ms Wyoming World Universal

I have not been very active on my blog lately to post about my current title, but I just wanted to take a moment to do that now. I currently hold the title of Ms. Wyoming World Universal & I will be returning home to New Orleans, LA to compete for the national title of Ms. USA World Universal in less than two weeks! I am very excited for this journey with this brand new pageant system! I have already met so many amazing women from all around the country & even globe. These women are driven, independent, strong, creative, beautiful and so inspiring! I have already gained so much from this experience & hope that I continue to grow through this process. I hope that you will support me along my journey. You can follow my Facebook page here:

The HeartBEAT (Page info saved)

From what I understand, my URL for The HeartBEAT will be dissolving tomorrow so I just wanted to save the info I had posted there. I have copied it & am posting it below.

The HeartBEAT

“Spreading the joy of music worldwide one good vibe at a time.”

While talking with some friends last night I came up with an idea I’m sort of in love with. I am hoping to turn this concept into a reality. I don’t want to give too much away until things really start coming together, but ultimately I can say this project will definitely be music related! So if you have a hEARt for music, stay tuned for what’s to come! ❤

We just got INCed 10-10-17

I am happy to report that I woke up this morning to an email from the Mississippi Secretary of State approving the incorporation of The Heart-BEAT! I had put this project on the back burner due to being back in school on top of working. But, I decided last week that it was time to pick it back up again. I applied for incorporation over the weekend & was blessed with a yes! This is what I am truly passionate about & I am ready to make some waves-helping those who will eventually create sound waves! ❤

2nd Pillar 8-5-17

I decided today I will talk about another key point for The HeartBEAT. I believe that a good foundation for any organization is selflessness. So that is what I am going to elaborate on. Ultimately my goal is to create a 501c3, which is a fully nonprofit organization. I hope to benefit up-and-coming musicians through scholarships to music programs in their chosen genre, as well as assist in the acquisition of the instruments/equipment/software necessary to perform &/or record. My goal is to help artists further their career & gain the spotlight they so desire. Another goal of mine is to send carefully selected, underprivileged individuals to their first symphony, concert, or music festival with a well seasoned event host.

These are goals that can only be achieved through the selflessness involvement of passionate people with a hEARt for music. In order to remain a fully nonprofit organization people must be prepared to surrender time, money, & other services with no payment expected. This is the nature of true giving, it comes from the heart, not selfish desires. We are all lovers of music, it is the universal language that everyone understands. Whether it’s the simple drumming & chanting of tribes in 3rd world countries, classical sounds from sophisticated instrumentalists, or the hard hitting vibrations of music produced on a computer accompanied precisely by lasers; it all makes us feel something deep in our soul. Music is something everyone can relate to; there is a tune out there for every single person.

There are abundant ways to contribute to the cause aside from strictly monetary donations, which will be needed & greatly appreciated! Musicians offering complimentary or low cost lessons, graphic designers creating logos & merchandise, people leasing out or opening up their vacant spaces for shows to help artists gain exposure & create a fan base, reallocation of old instruments or equipment to those in desperate need. Again, all of this requires completely selfless giving. It must come from the genuine love of music in all forms & the desire to carry on the tradition of creating new sound waves for the ears of the next generation. If you don’t think you have any skills or talents to offer, I can guarantee you you’re wrong! So if you have a hEARt for music, & wish to be of assistance, reach out & let The HeartBEAT know. Let’s show the world that music is meant for everyone, & everyone deserves the best opportunities imaginable to claim a part in the movement no matter what limitations may try to hinder them! So who is ready to get their hands dirty & help out? ❤

1st Pillar 8-4-17

As things unfold I hope to reveal more pillars, or core foundations, for The HeartBEAT. However, right now I will start with the first & what I consider most important pillar-kindness. The EDM (Electronic Dance Music) culture centers a lot around a concept called P.L.U.R, which stands for Peace, Love, Unity, Respect. This concept is all about acceptance, reaching out to others & letting people in, creating bonds with total strangers through the love of music, & putting everything else aside but these principles. When we respect others for who they are we learn to love them, & through that comes unity, & when everyone is living harmoniously all is at peace. Music can help people see past personal boundaries; when you realize that someone so different from you loves music so similarly it is mind blowing how eye opening it can be.

My challenge to everyone here is to take this positivity outside of just music festivals & certain scenes & spread it throughout the world. If we can love each other in one environment we should be able to do so anywhere at anytime. My friends & I like to call ourselves the Good Vibe Tribe, sometimes we also refer to ourselves as PLUR Warriors. But ultimately we remain, overall, a very positive group of people. We consider each other family. Trust me we all have our bad moments, but when you can turn to one of these people you know has a good attitude & positive outlook in life, you can turn any frown upside down. Energy is kinetic it flows from one person to another & so on down the line. If your energy is negative, that is what you are spreading into the world & vice versa if your energy is positive.

It is easier to spread light in a world of darkness. Darkness is the absence of light, not the other way around. Take a pitch black room with no windows or doors. Total blackness, you see nothing. Something so much as the flicker of a match can light up the whole room. So take the easy route… spread joy, kindness, acceptance, unconditional love, & overall positive vibes in every area of your life! These values are key to creating a healthy lifestyle for any individual, a unified community, & a peaceful world. Are you up for the challenge? ❤

Novel #1

Ten years ago I developed a major crush on a guy while working at a ski resort as holiday help. I have always been a writer of poetry as well as a journalist. So naturally when I returned to school, I took to my new computer to start jotting down some of my feelings. When I realized how much quicker I was typing the words than when I had used to journal by pen in a notebook it was intriguing.

I have also always been a very vivid dreamer, waking up most mornings remembering a dream or two. In the few days following my return home I had powerful dreams that inspired me to keep writing. I decided to use my infatuation for this romance, which by the way never never blossomed into a relationship, to fuel a fictional story about a girl who fell for a boy in the mountains.

I begin to define the relationship of a young couple who met at a ski resort & created them some friends. It was quite simple at the time it seemed. I was motivated by my dreams & the idea of the cute guy still looming in my mind. The the writing, as usual for me, seemed to flow. So I wrote several pages before my passion for the story dwindled.

After I graduated college, I moved to Los Angeles for two years & writing no longer seemed important. I was more focused on trying to kick off my career as an actress. I gave up only shortly after being accepted into & joining SAG-AFTRA (the acting union). However, during my time in LA I was fascinated by yet another young man, a foreign athlete who was only in LA for a short period of six months. This time I focused more on real life than the made up world of a book. For the time being at least…

In 2014 I relocated once more to New Orleans. I had not thought about my book in a long time until my apartment flooded & my laptop was destroyed (PSA: never leave your laptop sitting on the floor). I sent it to a company to have the data retrieved. They were somewhat successful, however, the work I had done on the book was lost. It was heartbreaking! It was one of those situations where you don’t realize how much something means to you until it is out of your reach. I was disheartened & had absolutely zero interest in returning to my book.

Over time I made a few more moves. Each time I would come across notebooks with my writing or poetry in them & I would get enticed to sit down & read. I came across a lot of writing about men I had been attracted to over the years & I realized what a hopeless romantic I am. I also came to accept over time, that I am not destined for a relationship of my own. Yet, I still love the idea of love. I love reading about love, watching movies about love, dreaming about love & I have now discovered that I enjoy writing about love. So I began to write again.

It was a struggle at first. I honestly did not want to start over after losing all of my previous work. So I simply jotted down some thoughts I had about the characters I once created. One day, I don’t remember exactly when, I sat down & wrote a quick scene. It was a single page or two of the main characters meeting. I left it at that & did not write again for quite some time.

Over the course of the past TWO years, I have slowly chipped away at what I now call my “Snowboard Novel Draft.” I have a full time job & I certainly don’t commit myself to writing as I should. I don’t write regularly, but when I sit down to write, somewhere between one to two thousand words ends up coming out. I rarely write small sections at a time. I did write out of order & I would skip all around. Only here recently did things finally take shape & I began to feel a sense of accomplishment.

On April 19th 2021 I printed my ROUGH First Draft of my “Snowboard Novel Draft.” It stands at 86 standard, letter size pages, font size 11 or 55,627 words. This was in my eyes, my first real milestone on this project. I sent it to three people who I know & trust for their input & feedback before going back to add more. As things progress, I plan to keep you informed! But in the meantime, if you would like updates, please contact me to be added to my email list & follow me on Facebook at my Kimily24 page & Instagram at @KimilyTrehern 🙂 ❤

Ethel Louise Trehern 12/14/21-5/15/20

My grandma passed away Friday night at 7pm. She prayed for me & thanked God for my gift of writing in her final prayer. The following morning I was asked to write something for her service. This is what I wrote that day… IMG_0448

Ethel Louise:

Those who knew her

called her Wese

 

A woman of great character

Missions had her heart

She witnessed to an alcoholic 

& gave a minister his start

 

She was thirteen at the time

& from there her faith just grew

She taught classes at the same church

where she played piano too

 

She raised a family filled with the love

of her Father up above

She prayed to Him from here on Earth

so that others may know their worth

 

Cooking was her hobby

She made recipes everyone knew

Sweet rolls with pink icing

had people lined up before she was through

 

Invited to the National Pillsbury Cook-off

in Washington D.C.

Her lemon supreme cake was chosen

& a brand new kitchen she received

 

Sharp as a tack ’til her last breath

She was able bodied & giving

She loved doing things for others

That made her life worth living

 

Her family was her pride & joy

Her heavenly Father the Head of House

She resides in His kingdom now

making up the years lost with her spouse

 

A commendable woman

for ninety-eight & a half years

Memories will be joyous

though at this time we shed tears

 

She leaves behind a legacy

Some massive shoes to fill

I hope when she looks down

That pride is what she feels

WAKE UP! You have been BRAINWASHED!

To quote my Instagram post today…

“So here’s the deal. We all know the media is corrupt. It’s a web of lies distorting the truth. These days it’s nearly impossible to dig up the truth. Everything we are told is controlled. Manipulated. By some of the people we have come to know & trust the most! Technology can be utilized as a powerful tool in psychological warfare. & as technology advances, that power only increases. I’m by no means saying you can’t trust anyone or that all technology is bad. But I urge you, to think. Use independent thought. Question things that don’t seem right. The truth often makes more sense than the lies that just don’t add up. People joke about not believing everything you read on the internet. But honestly, that’s no joke! Learn about those celebrities, politicians, even religious leaders that you look up too. They may not be who you think they are.”

I’m not going to tell you what to believe or not to believe. That’s exactly the opposite of the point I am trying to make here. I don’t want to force my opinions on you. But there are entities & organizations out there who do! Everything fed to you though all forms of media is filtered. You only see what they want you to see & they make it impossible to find factual information. The more you research, outside of just your mainstream newsfeed, the more you will see that a lot of what we are told does not add up. It’s not easy to find answers, they are covered well. & those who try to bring the truth to light are silenced, often permanently. Those in power want you to remain oblivious. They give you the illusion of independent thought to choose your own belief system, but everything they are serving to you is only what they want you to see. We have become so conditioned to this technological mind control, so desensitized to the realities of this world. It is time to WAKE UP! Think for YOURSELF! See what is actually happening out there. There are dark forces at work, but there is still light in this world. We just have to harness the light & use it to smother the darkness. ❤
