Kelly Preston quotes: timeless words from the late actress.

“I really believe you can do, and be, and have anything you want.”

“When I married John [Travolta], I put my career on hold to be a wife and to have a child. Before that I didn’t have a fabulous career, but I was working. When I decided to resume acting, I had become Mrs. Travolta in many people’s eyes so I had to prove myself all over again.”

“Communication is huge. Continue playing. People will let their marriage go but you have to have fun, play, have date night, you know, make it last. We check in with each other. What’s wanted and needed? We keep it alive and playful and fun. And we don’t push each other’s buttons.”

“Keep checking in and keep growing and changing. Keep doing things.”

“We have so many fantastic rather surreal aspects to our lives and I think we try to be as normal as possible by doing regular things.”

“We really give our kids the space to discover who they are—to make their own choices and to experience the joys of life.”

“I experience bliss a lot, and it’s always when I’m with my kids and husband and we’re all together alone. As a family it doesn’t get better than that.”

“We are all trying to balance our careers and children and give as much of ourselves and our time to them. I really think that these days anybody who is a parent is a superparent. You work and have a husband, and projects, and friends. It is a balancing act.”

“So I delegate a lot and I make my family come first: my husband and our kids.”

Never underestimate how important it is to have sleep and good nutrition. When you have those basic things, your outlook is a whole lot better.”

“Everybody grieves in their own way. I felt at times where I was drowning. It felt like a sea of wet blankets and then I just peeled them off layer by layer.”

“I think by being happy it actually affects the way that you look too.”

“For a lot of people getting older means you start slowing down. I don’t think you have to. A lot of it is mindset.”

“Do what you can, enjoy yourself, and don’t live in fear.”

“I look at my life and just say, ‘Whoa!’ I appreciate life all the time. It’s not something you ever really get used to. I’ll be sitting there doing something really normal with the kids and then all of a sudden I hear, ‘Whoosh!’ and see the lights of the airplane and he’s like, ‘Honey, I’m home!’ Growing up, Johnny thought everybody would have a plane in their backyard. And he made that dream a reality.”

“Don’t sweat the small things. Love your kids like it could be the last moment.”

“Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.”
