It was a shock to all when Miranda Kerr decided to cut ties with Victoria's Secret last year, and now she's opening up about the career change in the June 2014 issue of Harper's Bazaar.

After striking a few gorgeous poses for Alexi Lubomirski, the 31-year-old supermodel opened up about her split from hubby Orlando Bloom to toning down her busy career.

Check out highlights from Miss Kerr's interview below and for more, head over to Harper's Bazaar!

On reaching her goals:
“There’s nothing in my way once I make up my mind. Bossy? I can be. I like to be direct. My son’s bossy, too.”

On facing struggles in life:
“Everyone goes through challenging periods in their life. That’s inevitable and it’s part of being human. I feel like it’s a daily process of being positive. All these experiences make me into the person I am. The tough days make the positive days even more beautiful. The challenging days add more depth and strength of character.”

On modeling for multiple brands:
“I used to be in two different countries every single week. I made a conscious decision to shift gears. I’m very much a people-pleaser at heart – I feel that if everyone else is happy, then I’m happy – but I’m learning the power of saying no and putting my foot down.”
