Here Is Why Lucy Kennedy Should Be Your Inspiration
For normal people like us, celebrities (or famous people, for that matter) offer a window to the limitless possibilities which we can aspire to in our otherwise average lives. But instead of following celebrities who live extremely lavish lifestyles or act like they’re better than everyone else, we have some who are definitely better role models for us. Lucy Kennedy is one of them.
You may know her from her own reality show on TV called Livin’ With Lucy, or as the host of Ireland’s Got Talent, but there is no denying that Lucy Kennedy has become quite famous in her country and, possibly, around the world as well. She has made it known that she would rather be surrounded by normal people instead of celebrities, because, according to her, one must act extra cautiously against the latter as they are easily offended.
For someone who has fought through all the issues women have faced in the past, especially in the media industry, Lucy is still as kind as they come. When an interviewer from The Independent paid her a visit, Lucy opened the door and immediately took the former in a warm embrace. Once seated, Lucy pointed out that the interviewer looked tired and suggested that she, the interviewer, rest up for an hour while Lucy would just talk and record all her answers on tape.
A Tough Life
Although we bet Lucy would never bring up the struggles she has faced throughout her life, there is no doubt that her life has been truly extraordinary. She came on TV at a time when female presenters were expected to look a certain way (and Botox certainly was popular among female TV hosts back in the 2000s), and so the pressure to fit the image was upon her. However, she navigated through that with a firm belief in herself and her abilities.
That is not the only challenge Lucy has had to face. The media industry is rather infamous for paying men and women discriminatorily, however, Lucy fought against that by not accepting jobs which followed that rule.
When Lucy was expecting Jess, her third child, she was also actively responsible for collecting her other children from school and recording episodes for her TV show, and naturally, everything became too overwhelming for her at some points. According to her, there came times when she would just sit down and cry while at the TV studio, something she believes happened due to all that stress and sense of panic in her life.
A More Balanced Approach
However, after she gave birth to Jess, Lucy realized that she now needed to spend more time with her family instead of devoting most of her time to work. She found this balance by working at Radio Nova for a show early in the morning, all the while filming Livin’ With Lucy and also preparing for Ireland’s Got Talent (the second season). She has also committed to working on a three-part children’s book series, the first of which may hit the shelves sometime in Autumn 2019.
This may not sound so balanced to you, but Lucy has made sure she is not working on two conflicting projects at the same time. This way, she is able to divide up her day and finish more work while spending ample time with her family, as compared to running back and forth trying to fulfill multiple job commitments at the same time.
Lucy is also very committed to ensuring that her kids grow up with all the love a parent can possibly give. Sometimes, when she tucks them into bed, Lucy asks them whether they are happy in life. This is an important question to ask because, according to Lucy, having money does not ensure happiness and hence, although she, along with her husband, has provided their children with all the material things, it’s still important that they grow up in a loving environment.
