Saw this great article today about one of my favourite celebrity ‘odd’ couples, Kirk Pengilly and Layne Beachley. On the surface they don’t look like a ‘match’ and they were far from impressed with first impressions. But once they relaxed, stopped judging and self sabotaging and just went with the flow, they discovered they were exactly what each other needed. And 13 years later they are still going strong.
So who are some other celebrity couple who’ve shown the right person for you could be quite different to what you thought?
Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon – She’s 43, he’s 32, they married in 2008 after dating for just 6 weeks! 5 years and 2 babies later they still look as happy as ever!
Hugh Jackman & Deborra-Lee Furness – He’s 44, she’s 57, they have been together 18 years and still seem very happy.
Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta Jones – Despite a 25 year age gap and a number of medical issues, these two have been together for 15 years and are going strong.
Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart – Again a big age difference (22 years) and they’ve been together since 2002, married in 2010 and raising a son together.
So what is the lesson here? Maybe it’s time to lose the list of ‘must haves’ and open yourself up for who the universe wants to send you 🙂
Here’s another very apt quote from the fantastic Tony Robbins –
“The more rules you have about how people have to be, how life has to be for you to be happy, the less happy you’re going to be.”
Much Love to You
