Jennifer Lopez Wants To Be A Great Parent

According to Jennifer Lopez, she doesn’t want to be just the best dancer, singer or actress in the world. The multi-talented entertainer says that she instead inspires to be the best parent that she can be. The mother-of-two recently opened up to In Style Magazine where she talks about love, motherhood, and surviving those tough times in life. Here’s what she says:

On motherhood: “Of course, I’m the same as any parent. I feel the pressures of wanting to be a great parent and of wanting to do right by my children. I feel the pressure of knowing you can’t be perfect even though you want to be. One thing I’ve learned: Being a mom, or a dad, is the most important job there is. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have to embrace it for everything that it is.”

On love: “The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys… The hard part is that you never stop believing in love. You never stop. But that’s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, ever give up.”

On surviving tough times: “I live by the mantra that God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle. It’s not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow. And then you realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize: There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be OK. At this point in my life, I’ve learned I can really survive things.”
