Michelle Obama In TIME Magazine

Michelle Obama Time Magazine

Michelle Obama is on the cover of the new issue of TIME Magazine which hits stands tomorrow.

In the issue she reveals how to make tough choices, what advice former first ladies offered her and how D.C. has changed her family life.

Check out some highlights below:

On making choices:

“You’ve got to make choices that make sense for you … because there’s always going to be somebody who’ll think you should do something differently.”

On how her family dynamic has changed since moving into the White House:

“It has been the greatest single benefit of this for us as a family.  It means that we see each other every day. And that hasn’t happened for most of the kids’ lifetime.  It’s rare [for most families] to have dad at home for dinner, to see him in the mornings, to have him there when you go to bed at night, just to be able to have the casual conversations that happen about life at dinnertime.  That’s been terrific. It’s normal. It’s more normal than we’ve had for a very long time.”

On advice from her predecessors:

“The most unexpected and uniform advice that I got was, Go to Camp David, early and often.  It’s one place you can go where you feel some level of freedom and an ability to breathe.”

On being a role model:

“There are thousands of Michelle and Barack Obamas all over this nation.”
