Memorable Quotes:

As women we’re taught early on to be polite, to be nice, to not make anyone uncomfortable. But I always remember this great line from a movie: “All we have…is all these years.” We can fill those years with toxic, negative people or with fun, positive people. You don’t get any points when you get to heaven for putting up with bullshit.
