“The way I’ve lived with loss is to lean into it. As the saying goes, the only way out is through. In my life, certainly I’ve tried to avoid pain, loss, feeling things. But I’ve learned instead to really lean into it, because sooner or later you have to pay the piper. Leaning into my loss has been a way of getting myself back. I’m not saying it’s easy, and it certainly hasn’t been for me. There’s been a lot of darkness. But on the other side things can be so bright.”   People Magazine, 2018

  “With Twitter and Instagram, it’s easy to get wrapped up in someone else’s stuff and feel this false sense of what am I doing? What feels healthy to me is thinking about my childhood self and thinking, would I be proud of what I’m doing now? If that answer is yes, then I’m doing something right. If it’s no, I’ve got to go back to something I learned in yoga class. When I’m trying to do downward dog without accidently farting, my instructor will tell me to gently correct- so I gently correct my path instead of yelling at myself.” Cosmopolitan Magazine
