J-Lo’s Divorce and Why It Matters to You

In case you haven’t stood in a grocery store line lately and missed the news: J-Lo is getting divorced from Latin pop star Marc Antony.

Two thoughts came to my mind as I waited for the lady with 12 items in the less-than-10-only-lane fumbling for her checkbook. (Yes, checkbook, sigh)

  1. I think that’s number three for J-Lo.  It’s easy to look at the story on the cover and think of it in Disney terms.  You know – it’s all a big fairytale with ups and downs and conflict.  But the reality is there are people involved.  No matter how rich or famous they are, they are still human.  Humans hurt.
  2. There are millions around the world who look to these folks for inspiration.  Yet these stars spend their lives acting out fairytales they never get to live.  Their real lives aren’t like the movies.  Sure, they are rich, but that is only money.

I’m thinking it might be best to look to another source for inspiration on how to live in the real world. Hollywood stars don’t seem to have the answers on making it work out here in the trenches.  The book of Proverbs, on the other hand, does.

    I’m thinking you’re right… These are certainly not the people we want to imitate!
