Makeover: A New You?

Seeing is believing; isn’t that the common wisdom? You’ll believe it when you see it. So a new you has to be seen before the makeover? Well, sort of. What if I told you it’s the other way around?

About Right and Wrong…

We learned about this at our mother’s knee. We know about right and wrong. It’s black and white, for sure.
