Jennifer Lopez…I just love her!
So everyone has different female idols and I would have to say that Jennifer Lopez is one of my most favourite. Normally when I tell people the first reaction is normally “You know she is a complete diva” and my response is “Well…Yeah…She’s not considered a ‘triple threat’ because she’s sitting like a wall flower”.
However the reason I bring this all up is because I’ve been reading Australian ‘Cosmo’ from November 2013 and Jennifer is their cover girl.
Reading through I was nodding my head and agreeing with her, saying things like it wasn’t till she was older (in fact after she had her children) that she started to feel comfortable. The quote/section that really stood out to me was (after telling her new partner she has things about being ignore since she was a middle child) “It’s funny. Sometimes when we don’t get it (attention), we try to get it in a negative way, you know?”
“Chasing guys who ignore us,” I say, lounging on my bed “So many of us do that in our twenties”
“…And then it becomes a habit, and you’re like, ‘Why am I still doing this”.
When I read this I had one of those Oprah ‘ah ha!” moments. This is EXACTLY where I am up to in my ‘journey’. Then she went on to say “I was always so insecure” she says. “Then I grew, little by little, and realised, wait a minute, this is not a fluke, I am not a mistake”
People wonder why I love her so much! …She just happens to be an inspiration for me.
