“It’s challenging being a wife and a mother. It’s a paradox. Being a wife and a mother is probably one of the most extraordinary, fulfilling experiences in my life. At the same time, it has been very difficult to balance doing the things that I want to do and have the freedoms that I want to have, and also being responsible for you and your brothers and your father. I’m constantly every day trying to figure out that balance. Figuring out how to help you fulfill your dreams, at the same time assisting daddy and his dreams, assisting your brothers and their dreams, and then figuring out what my dreams are. You always have to remember to take care of you, first and foremost. When you stop taking care of yourself you get out of balance and you really forget how to take care of others. I believe what I do takes so much energy, so much work from heart, spirit, and creativity, that I have to be responsible enough to take care of me.”

-Jada Pinkett Smith responds to daughter Willow Smith’s question on I Choose People, 2012.
