"As a younger person, my philosophy was jump off a cliff. I realize now that there are stairs and elevators. I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me. I can even ask for help! Not feeling that I have to know everything, and that's where the growth comes in, in the not knowing."
"I am ALL these things; I'm quiet and I'm loud. I'm joyful AND I'm depressed. I'm happy AND I'm sad. I'm big AND I'm small. Like, we're all of those things, and I don't have to have a version of myself that I think is better than another - and I'm very careful and very mindful how I talk to myself, because then, I'm in competition with my own self."
"Navigating life and feeling good in your skin is not easy for any of us, but I think it could be more fun. I think we all could use a lot more compassion and a lot less judgment of ourselves and each other."
