Actress, Model, Mother of Rowan and Grier
"As I learn more and think further down the road, I find myself doing more. I realize that just because I can't go all the way and in every area, I still can make a sizable difference. In my mind, I may still lament that I haven't gone even farther, and sometimes at night I can't sleep thinking about all the things I haven't changed in my life and in the lives of my children. In my actions, though, I try always to be forward-moving, to focus on the change I am making. I'm thrilled that my children began with organic food and therefore won't have to make that switch to it, as I did. It feels good to know that once I adapt in certain areas (say, eating and cleaning), I'm better armed to attack areas that previously seemed out of reach."
