This picture tugs at my heart strings so much. Britney is calling her mom after winning the Video of the Year award at the 2008 VMAs. This is so significant because she was harshly criticized for the previous year’s performance during her meltdown. If this isn’t a real success story, I don’t know what is. It’s a testament to the fact that you can fall down to a very deep place and still get back up afterwards. Britney Spears triumphed over her demons and so can you.
