“I do not joke when I say she is my better half. she really is. I can not believe what a fantastic life I have today. Ultimately, we both changed a lot. So now I can not imagine a life before her. I’ve certainly come to believe that Mrs. Downey and I together are definitely better than me alone or me and someone else.”
“The more you are positive and say “I want to have a good life,” the more you build that reality for yourself; by creating the life that you want. It is not always the case that things will fall into your lap or that life will be great, but it is all about perspective and having a positive outlook. If something goes wrong, you say, “That happened for a reason, what can I learn from that and how can I grow?””
People always think I’m strange when I say that I feel the prettiest first thing in the morning. That moment when the sun kisses my eyelids and the birds are singing to me and there’s not a thought in my mind. Before the madness that a busy day entails. Before I can actually figure out where I am (even though I know where I laid down the night before). When I’m at total peace with myself and everything around me. That’s what happens when I first wake up. And that’s when I feel the prettiest.
