As I sit here, almost seven months pregnant, I'm faced with thinking about what the future holds for generations to come. I want to teach my children to do the right thing -- always.

Summer holidays are a good opportunity to find some perspective and do some soul-searching. I always like to pack my suitcase with a few books that will help me clear the mental clutter of the day-to-day and reflect a little deeper...

It's no wonder millennials have such an obsession with karma.

Thus, that time your iron-fisted principal slipped in the parking lot was more than likely just an inner-ear problem.
