The world is constantly changing. Every single year new trends come out and change the way we live. It can be easy to forget how quickly this change takes place, but these five facts prove beyond a reasonable doubt that we are truly living in the future. If you'd have learned any of these facts last year, you wouldn't have believed them for a minute.
We, the elder generation, have created a lot of problems in the twentieth century. The generations of the twenty-first century will have to find the solutions for them.

I read the book The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin a few years back and the one line that really stood out for me was, "The days are long but the years are short." As a mom of three, I have never heard a line more true. When the kids...

World Peace Day has become an important date in the calendar since 1981 when it was first conceived by the UN General Assembly to designate the day as "a period of non-violence and cease-fire."
This week I spent three days in Scotland shining a bright light into the dark world of corporate lobbying that slows progress on climate action. The classic 'FUD' - Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt approach: From "It's not happening" through "It's happening, but it's nothing to do with human activity" to...
Often we hear about another's tragedy, and it makes us feel better about our own situation. The recognition that we are all connected -- whether Tibetan Buddhists or Hui Muslims -- is the birth of empathy and compassion.
Today’s parenting culture often emphasizes cultivating the perfect human being for a future, robot-filled economy we don’t yet understand; modern parents are often rushing from activity to activity in an attempt to curate a one-day employable person who will enter a dog-eat-dog, competitive economy in which only the...
Every year, in North Myrtle Beach, a memorial event takes place on main street. It is focused on remembering those who lost their lives and gave their lives on September 11th, 2001. The entire city comes out to show their support for families who were affected, first responders who risked or gave their lives, and those who are still out there protecting us. There is a parade of support by not only those who mourn the losses that took place on that horrific day, but also by the men and women that are still risking their lives each day in service of their fellow man. A moment of prayer and silence is acknowledged for those who died, and time is afforded to individuals who have words of condolence and comfort for us who are lucky enough to be alive today. So many cities around the world show their respect each year for the americans who were lost on 9/11, but I would argue that only a handful do so as effectively as North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You would have to be there to experience the full impact and power of the honor that is shown toward the innocent lives and brave responders who were lost on that day. All I can give you is the video above to capture, in some small way, the feelings that are felt by the people of North Myrtle...
The other day I heard blogger and author Glennon Doyle Melton explain that the root meaning of the word crisis is "to sift." And like a child sifting through sand at the beach for seashells, during a crisis everything unnecessary falls away and you are left with the treasures. All that you need can't be taken from you.
Escape to Almost the Cape. Today I had the opportunity to visit sweet little Onset Island. Located at the Western end of the Cape Cod Canal in the town of Wareham. Picture the day, 75 degrees, clear blue skies and so sunny - a particularly picturesque day. We pull...

School is officially back in session, which means one thing to the childless: Your social feed has been crammed full of first day of school pics. Feeling left out? Hey, you don’t need to sport a new “Paw Patrol” backpack and a Pinterest-y chalkboard sign to get...
This September marks the intersection of two prominent events. The first is the one-year anniversary of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. The second? It’s New York Fashion Week....
I hear you with our child in the other room, the music of your laughter mixed with hers the most beautiful sound I know. The vibrating baritone of your voice in perfect sync with the joyful bubble of hers -- a domestic symphony, the soundtrack to our family's happiness.

"Sometimes it all overwhelms me, and I sit and cry," Diamond revealed, but America isn't having it. Because by helping her we tell all moms, no, you should not have to do this alone. We confirm that though we may have vast differences in opportunity and circumstance, our common concerns unite us.
