Editor's Note "Bravery shows up in everyday life when people have the courage to live their truth, their vision, and their dream." –Oprah Winfrey Yes, Oprah! Yes. Oprah just gets it. Right? She is a perfect example of someone who lives like this and is therefore living her best life. Our June/July issue is filled with brave women who dared to dream big and because they did are living out their wildest dreams. We've got interviews with WWE Superstar CJ "Lana" Perry, The Bold Type's Katie Stevens, burlesque extraordinaire Dita Von Teese, R5's Rydel Lynch, and our cover star, actress-author-activist, Diane Guerrero. These fierce and fearless ladies knew what they wanted and went out and got it. The road to success is never free of bumps, detours, wrong turns, and flat tires –at least not in my experience-- but when you want something bad enough, when you know it's your calling and it's something that you can't live without, you keep on rolling. And that sort of passion is admirable, and respectable and inspiring, which is why I have no doubt that you'll be inspired by these women's stories – especially Diane's. I sat down with Diane last month and we spoke about her journey, her honest-heartfelt memoir, "In the Country We Love: My Family Divided," being true to yourself, and perhaps most importantly, considering the last week, self-care. The latter subject feels even more relevant, since we lost Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to suicide a few days ago. Diane and I briefly talked about suicide since she had an experience with it that she candidly shared in her book. (If you haven't read her book, you should, it's beautiful, raw, and eye-opening.) Life is not easy, and sometimes it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, some comfort is found knowing that we all go through challenging, dark times, and you're not alone. If you're feeling hopeless, let someone know and ask for help. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
