Quotes

“I think it was just the contrast of holding this tiny baby, that I didn't even realize I could love someone so much, and reading all these statistics about what he was going to face… all of that just kind of lit this passion in me that I wanted to change that statistic.”  (7:59)

“Really being kind of ruthless and honing down on what are the most important things in life, and starting with those, those things should hit the schedule first, not the ten million sports practices and all of the extracurricular activities and things we add on.” (16:42)

“I think some of our best lessons in life come from our failures, certainly that has been the case for me.” (22:28)

“I could have the perfect diet and do all the right things and check all of the boxes, but there was still this gigantic boulder blocking my path. Which was that I had all these emotions stuck and when you create walls, you can't go anywhere.” (25:21)

“To me, it is that ripple effect, that we can create through those little tiny things of actually just truly loving someone, including ourselves, without expectation or qualification, and just like exuding that, the number of ripples that has in the world I think is astounding.” (39:57)
