I believe that until you fail and know what it feels like, you can never appreciate success.

I believe that it’s ok to be in your 30’s and still be a “Daddy’s Girl.”
I believe that it’s ok for men to cry.
I believe that love is love and if you’re lucky enough to find someone you love who loves you back that no one has the right to tell you it’s not ok because of sex, race, or religion.
I believe there is no such thing as an honest politician.
