Quotes

#Quote
1The wiser you get, the more experience you have, and the more you see people for who they are as human beings, as opposed to figures you have to fight against.
2I am lucky to have three daughters who are completely different. I look at my daughters and I have different relationships with all three and there are parts of each personality that are very special.
3I think there's a time to work, and everyone had to kind of adjust. And then there's a time to relax, and be the mom or take the kids on vacation when you need to wind down. So it's a matter of planning, and being able to map out your year or your week or let's start with the day. It is just being multi-tasking and being available.
4I throw myself into my work. It's exhausting. It's time-consuming. I feel guilty for not being with my kids all the time. But then when I'm home with my children and devoting my life to my kids, in the back of my mind, I'm wondering whether I'll ever get employed again. So there's a constant battle of doing what fuels me and what I do best. And also, being there for my kids.
