Mila Kunis has been juggling motherhood and a career since she gave birth to her daughter, Wyatt, in 2014, and her plate got even fuller with the birth of her son, Dimitri, in 2016. But, to the Golden Globe winning actress, it's all part of life. As she recently told Marie Claire:

“We could get struck by lightning any second. So why worry? There’s something so empowering about being, ‘Whatever’s going to happen is going to happen.’ Over the past four or five years, I’ve realized how much I enjoy that feeling.”

There's nothing quite like living for the moment and not worrying about something that may or may not happen. It's clear that Mila Kunis doesn't concern herself with the minuscule things in life — because, right now, her focus is on raising happy, healthy kids, regardless of how tired she is. "What motherhood shows you is how selfless you can get," she said. "I’m ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I’m happy.’”

On top of making sure her kids are healthy, the That '70s Show actress is determined that she and husband Ashton Kutcher are not going to raise entitled children, which is why they have instituted a "no Christmas gift" rule:

“We’re instituting it this year because when the kids are [younger than] 1, it doesn’t really matter. Last year when we celebrated Christmas, [our daughter] Wyatt was 2 and it was too much. We didn’t give her anything — it was the grandparents. The kid no longer appreciates the one gift. They don’t even know what they’re expecting; they’re just expecting stuff.”

With her upbeat attitude and determination, Kunis (along with Kutcher) is raising children who will be an asset to the future.

Kunis's next movie, Bad Moms Christmas, opens in theaters on November 1, 2017.
