"The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself and shine among those who never believed she could."
"Whatever the problem, be part of the solution."
Tina Fey, in Bossypants
"I’d love to go back and be that person again. But you can’t move backwards you can only move forward"
"[W]e all might benefit from incorporating more of the things we love into our daily routines instead of saving them for the weekend or our next vacation."
"First of all, why does wearing high heels have to be such an essential part of being a woman? They’re annoying, uncomfortable, and I can’t do anything in them. I, personally, can’t stand them. When I first started dating Elisha, at age twenty, I had a friend who was also dating a shorter guy, who actually sent me a tutorial on how to cut the heel off of a shoe so that you don’t have to be taller than your boyfriend. I never used this tutorial, and I don’t plan to. Even if I did wear shoes with heels, I’m not going to make my shoes suffer for my insecurities; I’m not going to resort to destroying shoes to look more “normal” when I stand next to my boyfriend. I still, however, don’t wear high heels. But that is due to my chronic clumsiness and that at almost 5’9”, I already have a long way to fall if I trip over something. I would fall on my face and then we would be an even “weirder” looking couple. If I were much more graceful, I would wear heels."
"The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths."
