“There are certain things in a family life that I think are sacred and that, as adults, we can take for granted—that time alone with your child when you’re not focused on any other individual and you’re just focused on your child. We multi-task in life but I think there are certain things and certain people that deserve that single-focus time and being with your children is one of them. I don’t think mixing dating and family fun time if you’re not in a marriage or a serious relationship is appropriate.”

“The older I get, the younger I feel.
Growing up, I was always the kid,
but I spoke like an adult and was in adult roles.
I didn’t feel like a kid.
The older I get, I actually feel younger!
Which is good. I always thought when you get older,
you’ll want to slow down, but I want to do even more.”

“I’m a huge proponent of health for your whole family, starting with your children.
If you’re not healthy and not living a healthy lifestyle you’re not going to be good for anyone else.

is a lifetime investment in overall health.”

in the middle of the pain. Unless you find a way to do that,

But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness,
you’re not going to find it in beauty, either.”
