5You know as far as diet goes, for a while I was really obsessed with counting fat grams along with the rest of the world.
6We all fantasize about a relationship we'd like to do over or something we'd like to change about our past. I think there are a lot more opportunities for second chances in our lives than we think.
7I think that people get to a certain point in their life and they think that nothing can change.
