“I meditate every morning for at least 15 or 20 minutes. I first got into it after reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron. A dear friend gave it to me while I was going through a really bad breakup, and it taught me about sitting with what is uncomfortable. With meditation I find everything about my life improves: my health, my sleep, my habits, my emotional state and my energy. I have struggled with body image issues my whole life. I’ll turn 42 in December, and I’m trying to embrace that my body doesn’t do what it used to. Ultimately, whether one pair of jeans fits or not, I can still enjoy the world and the people I love.” People Magazine

“I don’t think you need a lot of products to feel clean and beautiful. We all want to be attractive to somebody, and it doesn’t have to take so much. It’s interesting what sticks around in your head when you think about beauty. Because when you’re going on a date or out to the movies and you’re seeing your crush, you think about what you’re going to look like. It’s never as good in person, but you still feel beautiful anyway. When you love somebody, you just don’t see what they look like. You don’t pay attention.”  allure

LeAnn Rimes


“Since I was a child, my self-confidence was based on what others thought of me. So the public shaming penetrated on a deep level. There was such a weight on my marriage and my friendships because I was looking to them to help me. I needed to be by myself and figure my issues out on my own. I wouldn’t trade anything I’ve been through. Every time I sink back into depression. I think, ‘What’s the lesson here?’ There is always something good, if we look for it.” People Magazine


Miranda Lambert


“Finding happiness and being at peace with yourself, it’s a long journey, but I’ve really gotten to a great place. I’m my best self in cutoffs at the farm with no makeup. All I want to do is dream, live in the moment and spend time doing things I love with my friends and family. Going through hard things obviously makes you get to know yourself better. When you get broken down pretty good, you look at the mirror and you go, ‘I have to spend some time with me, learn who I am and what I want.’ I got to a really good place with myself. Then I met my husband. Without the hard stuff the chaos, the crazy schedule, the heartbreak, the falling in love, the falling out of love. I wouldn’t be who I am. I’m thankful for the lessons, even though they hurt at the time.” People Magazine

Paul Newman


“When I started adolescence, something in me closed down. I was so small, I had to get special dispensation from my school’s principal to play on the ninth-grade football team. I felt like a god**** freak. Girls thought I was a joke, a happy buffoon. I wasn’t a lover. I wasn’t an athlete. I measured things by what I wasn’t, not by anything I was.” People Magazine

Kate Hudson


“Stick with love. Even when my heart feels shattered, I never give up on love. I look for the beauty in life and move toward it, always. Mom always said to me, ‘Don’t you ever let a man dim your light.’ So I’ve never defined myself through the way a man sees me, but I can define myself in the unit that we can create together. That is what mom gave to me.” People Magazine



“One of the important things about relationships for me has been to really know and love myself more and be able to express the things that I want. I’ve evolved and gotten to that place. I communicate. I listen to what Tiffany has to say about how she feels and try to understand it instead of always having an answer. It’s about being in a relationship where you can grow, support each other’s purpose and vision, and have fun. People Magazine”
