"Being a wife and a mother is probably one of the most extraordinary experiences and the most fulfilling experiences in my life, but at the same time it has been difficult being able to do the things I want to do, and also being responsible for you and your brother and your father."
"What does [Reese] need today? What does [Riggs] need today? What does Daddy need today? Okay [Ashton], now before the day is done, you better make sure that you take care of yourself. And that's a new thing for me....I had forgotten how to take care of myself."
"When you stop taking care of yourself and you get out of balance, then you really forget how to take care of others."
"We've been taught that taking care of yourself is a problem...the messaging we get in this country is that you have to completely sacrifice everything."
"The re-messaging that we need as mothers to have and gravitate to is that you have to take care of yourself in order to have the alignment and the power to take care of others at the capacity that we do."
"I have to be responsible enough to take care of me."
"I start making [my family] responsible for my happiness. A lot of times we look to our men, our husbands and our boyfriends...and you're supposed to make me happy. Because we've lost our way on how to make us happy."
"Each year, each day, I get more and more and more in balance, and I get more and more happy."
"The very thing that I thought would make Daddy, [Reese], and [Riggs] unhappy actually is fulfilling for you guys as well. Even if it might not be tangible. The more happy and fulfilled I am, it works for the family, and when I'm not, it doesn't."
"You have a right to be happy. And your happiness is what fuels you from the inside."
