Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves.
There's a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog. I have to exert myself and really say, oh God, I've got to see my friends 'cause I'm too content being by myself.
I'm a carb queen. I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft Services as it can possibly get!
It's never too late. Don't focus on what was taken away. Find something to replace it, and acknowledge the blessing you have.
I'm a real stay-at-home mom. I'm really hands-on. Everything else became secondary.
I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end.
Kisses, even to the air, are beautiful.
I think that being happy makes the biggest impact on your physical appearance.
I just want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life, because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.
I loved the world of roller derby because I thought it was such an empowering metaphor, that you get out there and do it. It's such a rocker, athletic, capable, cool exhibitionist sport; it's about this great sort of camaraderie.
I want people to love me, but it's not going to hurt me if they don't.
There's something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.
I've always said that one night, I'm going to find myself in some field somewhere, I'm standing on grass, and it's raining, and I'm with the person I love, and I know I'm at the very point I've been dreaming of getting to.
The stories that I want to tell, especially as a director, don't necessarily have a perfect ending because, the older you get, the more you appreciate a good day versus a happy ending. You understand that life continues on the next day; the reality of things is what happens tomorrow.
I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I'm actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons.
I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends; that's the good stuff in life.
Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.
Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.
I think happiness is a choice. If you feel yourself being happy and can settle in to the life choices you make, then it's great. It's really, really great. I swear to God, happiness is the best makeup.
You can't live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn't do for you. You're dealt the cards that you're dealt. I realised it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.
