Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk sure look like they are in love. They put their love on display while on their first vacation on the Amalfi Coast.
Admittedly, my first reaction is to hate them a little. In our celebrity obsessed culture, that seems to be the go to response. But the more I think about it, the more I've decided jealousy isn't the way to go.
So, let's face it, no matter how hard I work, I will never look like Irina. But I can look more like her than I do right now. I'm not thinking that way because I hope doing so lands me a date with a Bradley Cooper look alike (although that wouldn't be a bad thing), I'm thinking that way because she is obviously fit and healthy. Bradley is no slouch either. He's not chiselled with a 6 pack but he is far from flabby beer gut.
Why should our first response be one of petty jealousy? I know not everyone cares about any of this but an awful lot of people do. And an awful lot of people make excuses for themselves or lash out against celebrities in hurtful and unnecessary ways. If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times: "I could look like that too if I had money." Fair enough. Money does allow one access to a gym and perhaps a private trainer and chef. Yes, that makes a big difference. But at the end of the day, the trainer isn't doing the exercise.
Irina Shayk didn't get a Victoria's Secret contract or pose in Sports Illustrated because someone else did her workouts. Bradley Cooper didn't hit 'hunk' status because he let himself go. Sure, not everyone is meant to be a model. But instead of hating on someone for a genetic predisposition that produced a body type conducive to modelling in today's standard of beauty, why not work to be the best you can be in your own life.
If you think about it, this pair is at the top of their game. They are both seeing incredible success in their professional lives and it is spilling over to their private lives. If you make yourself the best you can be, I'm guessing the same could happen for you.
Instead of hating celebrity couples, why not use them as your inspiration? Success isn't just measured by your finances or your level of fame. Before these couples got rich, and before they became famous, they worked. And they worked hard. They set themselves up for success.
You can do it too. Maybe you won't reach international stardom but you can find astronomical levels of happiness. Do those little things everyday that will make you better physically and things will start to change emotionally.
Look at their joy. Now use it to inspire your own.
You can do it. You deserve it.
