I'm that person who says, 'No matter what the problem is, there's a solution.' That's the way my brain is wired. If someone says to me, 'Well, that's not possible. It can't happen,' I say, 'Yes it is. I'm going to sit here and show you that it can.'

We all say things sometimes to hurt people, so it's important to forgive and have peace with others and forgive and be at peace with yourself.

I think the perception of me can be, you know, confused. But that's only because people only see that side of me when I'm at work, in front of the camera. So they don't see Miranda at home; they don't see behind the scenes. They see the glamour of it all but they don't see Miranda standing barefoot in a dirty old house.

I consider myself a good person. And I think people perceive me to be, 'Oh, she's nice,' but being a good person, knowing your strengths and working towards those strengths, and encouraging those around you to do the same, that's a good person.

If I was as relaxed as what I perceived myself to be, I would not be able to multi-task the way I multi-task.

I guess I'm just an open-hearted, fair, good person. I try to encourage people to be their best and look inside themselves and find out what they are passionate about and expand on that and enjoy life.

I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we've been given, not hiding that.

I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that's like women too.

I love being outdoors. I love listening to the crickets. I want to embrace nature.

I really appreciate the fact that with my job I can encourage people, especially young women, and if I find something that's helpful, I like to share that knowledge.

When I was young I wanted to be a gymnast. I used to compete at it, but then I grew too tall.

I always see myself as, like, equal to everyone.

I really love a red lip, especially when I am feeling tired, as it brightens my whole face.

To wake up to the sound of my son saying 'Mama, mama!' It's the best sound ever.

Women, I think we can feel like we need to do it all and be it all. What's important is that we do the best we can, and just make time for yourself because when you do make time for yourself, you give back more as a mother; you give back more to your work.

I live by the philosophy that beauty starts from within, and I make a conscious effort to fill my body with nutrients through the food I eat.

I celebrated my 18th birthday in Japan, which was quite memorable; I was quite fascinated by the different traditions and the culture; it was so completely different to Australian culture.

My mistake in my relationships has been to feel that I can do it all on my own: 'I don't need a man.' That is definitely a mistake. Women generally want to feel loved and appreciated. It's something that I am working on every day, trust me! It's a challenge for me to do that.

When I get home, I'm not the boss like I am at work - I slip into a more feminine role. I take everything off and put on my Stella McCartney silk robe. I'll put on a red lip or red nails, and it lifts my mood. Sexy underwear also gives you a spark.

For me it's all about keeping things simple and feeling comfortable in what I am wearing. I prefer investing in classic well-tailored pieces.

Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help instead of thinking you can do it all on your own.

I feel like knowledge is power: If you know how to take care of yourself, you can be a better version of yourself.

A celebrity life can be very fast-paced, and it can be hard to find meaning in it. I believe that everyone is looking for the answers, but the answers are within ourselves.

It doesn't matter who you are: being human is being human. Everyone has days that are challenging.

I'm a pretty driven person, and I've accepted that about myself. For a long time, I was like, 'I'm a very laid-back person, I grew up in the country,' but I'm also very driven, otherwise I wouldn't be where I am right now.

I try my best to eat healthy the majority of the time so that I feel good and have more energy. I am so passionate about eating healthily, I am actually certified in nutrition. I try my best to eat organic whenever possible, but it's important not to be too strict about it. Just do the best you can.

I can't feel bad about being who I am, just like the girl next to me can't feel bad about being who she is. Because a rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose.

I spent my childhood outdoors on my grandparents' farm. I learned to ride a motorbike when I was about six, a little PeeWee 50. I'd climb trees - there was a big weeping willow.

My ambition comes from my passion: finding what I love and then expanding on that.

A nice person is a 'yes' person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn't afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful.

When you can, it's good to make healthy choices. But, I also believe in balance. It's not about being 100 percent this way or that way. It's about making healthy choices when you can.

I find the practice of yoga very spiritual and taking the time to just be and to reflect through meditation and chanting helps me to connect to a higher energy.

I feel like life is really short, and it's important to enjoy yourself and embrace whatever comes your way, whether it's a challenging day or a great day, just welcome it with open arms. No matter who you are, you can't escape challenges; they are part of life.

People don't even realize the power the mind has over the body in the way you perceive things. Change your thoughts, change your reality. Words are powerful - every thought and every word we think has an effect on the body.

I've always been very comfortable wearing not much, in my swimwear or my underwear, or running around naked. I've always been very free like that. I don't really know why, exactly, but I just have been. Not really too shy about that.

When I pray, I always thank Mother Nature for all the beauty in the world. It's about having an attitude of gratitude.

Models are some of the most insecure people I've ever met. They're constantly being told they're not good enough. You've really got to practice loving yourself.

I love taking pictures of food.

I got stuck up a tree when I was about seven, and my dad had to come and get the ladder to get me down. I loved to climb all the way up to the top. I must have been a koala in my past life.

I work really, really hard and it's challenging going through all of those time zones and having to be awake when you're supposed to be asleep. I literally fly more than a pilot.

I love singing just for my own benefit.

I love being outdoors and try to work out outside when I can. I spent most of my childhood outdoors.

Of course I'm going to be labeled as a sex symbol. I made my bed, and I'm sleeping in it.

Some sunshine is good for the soul, but I always make sure I wear a big hat.

While it's nice to appreciate the fashion world... what makes you happy are real relationships and the moments you share with loved ones.

I really love over-the-knee boots. I think they're super sexy and they're fun. And they're also very strong and empowering.

Every day, I like to wake up and remind myself to be grateful of the simple things.

For me, family is life. The decision to start one wasn't complex at all. My career has been wonderful, but it's not my life. I don't feel pressure to get back to work.

Yoga is at the core of my health and wellness routine; even if it's only for 10 to 15 minutes I find it helps me to re-center and to focus as well as improve my overall core strength.
