Talk to Miranda Kerr is like talking to an oracle, or some sort of ancient deities.
She ‘s so perfect, balanced, elegant, with big blue eyes and facial features minutes and sweet, she doesnât even look human, except for that earthly and maternal air of her own, and not just for pregnancy, now in its final stage. Just this month, in fact, her first born boy will be born. Of first born girl: Miranda and her husband, Hollywood superstar Orlando Bloom, did not want to know the sex of the baby. âWhat matters is that he/she is healthy, no matter whether male or femaleâ. Anyway, there is to be expected that will be a loved child: âWe will do our best to be loving and present parents. Besides, I’ve lived in a family like that, for which I am grateful, and I will do everything to ensure the same thing to my babyâ. Always a champion of healthy and natural lifestyles, Miranda is not one of those women who fear the changes of the body during the fateful nine months: â I am enjoying pregnancy, and all that entails. Changing everyday fascinates me, like feeling the little life growing in me. I consider myself very luckyâ. And she is: she is one of the most famous top models in the world, portrayed by all the great photographers, she has reached the highest goals of fashion and beauty and she has its own line of natural products for skin, Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr. â My passion is health, well-being. I have tested hundreds of products, but I couldnât find the one that contained all the ingredients I wanted gathered. In Koraâs treatments the various components work together and enhance each otherâ. She wrote a book then, âTreasure Yourselfâ, about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and acceptance for what you are. And, last but not least, her child has as father one of the most charming and desirable men in movie industry. All this at 27 years old. Like a fairy tale, better than in a fairy tale, Miranda has come to have it all: career, love, family. Was she ever surprised about this? âOf course. I am immensely happy with my life and my experiences. Itâs like Iâm protected by a blessing. However, no matter who you are, what or how much you have: we all have our daily battles and our obstacles to overcome. This is life. What matters is how we deal with challenges: we can choose to accept them, learn and grow through them, or we can let them drag us down. It is up to ourselves to create the life we wantâ. What Miranda desires, ultimately, is simple, and includes a house powered by solar energy, a vegetable garden and a hammock. This is not a recent thought, understandable when all the targets have been achieved. âI always loved simplicity in life. It is there, on the hammock and in the garden, that I see myself, one dayâ. Simplicity, however, would also mean to close with modelling career, feel sooner or later the lack of reflectors, especially since the risk for her is to transform from âMiranda Kerrâ into âthe wife of Orlando Bloomâ. âI am who I am. Being in the spotlight or not cannot change the state of thingsâ. Meanwhile, she is still the most loved Australian of America and she embodies the ideal of the girl next door. âIâm glad that people consider me accessible, not intimidating for anyone. Iâm glad being in my skinâ, she says, almost as if she is reciting a mantra. Which obviously works, given the results. Everything seems to flow, and she is proud not to have any regret: âEvery decision I made was an opportunity for growth and part of the learning processâ, she says about her career. That, however, something cost to her: she began working as a model at 14 years old, moving to Australia to New York and giving up adolescence, as often happens in this job. No cheerleading at football matches, shopping with classmates, or proms. How do you get through all of this? What is her secret to success and happiness? âEmbrace every moment. Being really present and enjoying every step during the wayâ. Living so intensely in the âhere and nowâ, her priority now cannot be other than âcarry on her pregnancy healthy, and arrive to a conscious birthâ. After the birth, and before the hammock and the garden, Miranda has some intermediate target, accommodating with her being a mother. For example, âlet known about my product line. Sure, through the website is available worldwide, but I would like to distribute it in stores alsoâ. She reflects, and then adds: âand I would like that my book was translated in many languagesâ. In all her interviews, including this, she appears confident, balanced, wise. But there is nothing that scares her? âTo me, life is not to be feared, but to be enjoyedâ. Miranda Kerr appears to have always the right answer to each question. She smiles: âI do not think we are right or wrong answers, only differences of opinionâ.
