Women are told if they don't defy nature and stay 25 for the rest of their lives, it's a personal failure.

People think of discipline as deprivation. They think it means, 'I can't have all these things I want.' But it actually allows you to have everything you want. You just can't have a sh--ton of it.

I'm 41 years old - I have been through everything, OK? I'm grateful for all of it - whether it was something quick and passing or something that lingered  too long. There is not one thing I've been through that hasn't been a lesson that led me to this moment, and I can't believe how great life keeps getting.

I don't know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it's been ingrained in us to do these things.

I truly believe that when you don't understand your body, you forget how to be kind to yourself.

I'm just doing. like, a call to my ladies out there, saying keep your options open. Don't do it for-ever.

I was really self-conscious about people thinking that I thought I was pretty. So I learned to make fun of myself to make people feel more comfortable around me.
