“You learn life is short and it’s not worth doing something if you don’t enjoy it.”

“If you’re doing this because you feel like you have a burning desire to do it, then you’ll find a way to do it, no matter what.  If you’re doing this because you’re thinking, ‘Hey, this will be really cool…’ then you’ll probably quit, because it’s not easy to do for the long haul.”

“When I made my first album, there was no indication that anybody other than my parents were going to buy it.”

“You start out playing in kitchens, and you end up playing in kitchens.”

“Songs are like movies to me, and so you put yourself in the movie.  You become a character in the movie.  The new ones are exciting because they’re fresh.  But if it’s not that, if the story is not what you get into, maybe it’s the crowd response.  You hit the first chords of ‘She’s in Love with the Boy’ and 20,000 people start to scream, you’re pretty motivated.  You get what you need.  And it’s a great story.  It works.”

“People who truly love to sing have to do it all the time.  I always want to sing, but I don’t always want to be trying to have #1 records.  I don’t think you can do it forever.  I don’t know what the time span of that is going to be.  I want to sing because I want to sing.”

“I want to be fit and cute, but I don’t want to work hard to do it.  For years, I blamed everything and everybody but me for my own laziness.  When I started taking responsibility for my own actions, I started getting healthier.  When I started telling myself that I could run a mile instead of telling myself that I couldn’t, I ran a mile.”

“I’ve learned that I don’t need to fight for my place; I just need to be me.”

“Feeling deep, true love made me a little more compassionate toward the young woman I used to be.  From the safety of the right relationship, I was able to look closely at my past and realize that back then, I didn’t yet know what I needed to know in order to make better decisions.  After learning to forgive myself, the biggest lesson from being divorced is about trusting my gut.”

“You have to get to 45 to admit that you didn’t know everything at 21!  There’s no time limit on becoming an adult; some lessons take longer than others.  A simple yet huge one: my happiness is up to me.  Wow, what a concept!  It’s easy to blame everything that goes wrong in your life on someone else.  It’s a lot harder to look in the mirror and say, ‘What am I doing to create this situation, and how can I change it?'”

“I’m not chasing anything.  I’m not trying to be some trendy things.  I don’t know if it’s the freedom of being 54 and life is too short.  I’m just going to have fun and do what I want to do.”

“Know that God has a plan for your life.  Turn your life over to him every day.  Stop looking outside yourself for validation and approval – you’re letting other people define your happiness.  Instead of trying so hard to manipulate life, take care of yourself on the inside.  Then all those other attributes you’re so desperately seeking will find you eventually.”

“I’ve been blessed to live a lot of dreams.”

“Life is good!”

“As long as it’s fun, let’s keep doing it.”
