inspiration part 1

I get inspired by so many different things; photos, quotes, novels, lyrics, people, places. I thought I would a couple of posts on things that inspire me, maybe you will read it and be thinking 'I don't see why this is inspiring..' and I totally get that, everyone is different, right? But I thought I would share anyway. I have started with celebrities, this is something that always changes, reading interviews can change opinions about celebrities so easily, and I find celebrities extremely inspiring with things such as fashion, which changes a lot, too. But these are my current inspirations and some of them have always inspired me (such as the Olsens and Reese Witherspoon) and maybe always will.
I will do more posts, which will have quotes, photos, lyrics.. anything that has is inspiring me or has inspired me, so yep there is more to come.
Celebrity Inspiration
I find these three women extremely inspiration because of the people they are. They are all strong, beautiful, successful, independent women and it amazes me at how grounded they all seem. For example, recently I read in an interview that on date nights Christina Aguilera and her husband play board games and it shocked me, I never expected a celebrity to be that normal, especially one as successful as Christina Aguilera.. Angelina Jolie has given A LOT of money to charities along with husband Brad Pitt, and has adopted children from suffering countries. Reese Witherspoon balances her successful actress and film producer jobs and being a mother so well and she is actively involved in children and women's charities.
