"Some days I just think I am failing everywhere. Like today, I was making lunch and saying to myself, 'This lunch is so bad,' throwing pasta in the lunch bag, yelling, 'Get in the car.' I was losing my cool. I think it's very hard to try to find the right balance, and I think we all aspire to that balance, but it's easier said than done. It's just a matter of trying your best each day and not being too hard on yourself about things."
