I know this is supposed to be an instagram thing, but..
February 3, 2013: Your Role model (Someone that inspires you)-
Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 30 countries. Asked what she hoped to accomplish, she stated, “Awareness of the plight of these people. I think they should be commended for what they have survived, not looked down upon.”
She covered all costs related to her missions and shared the same rudimentary working and living conditions as UNHCR field staff on all of her visits.
I admire people that strive to help people in need; people that not only say they care but are willing to travel to another country and physically help them. It is one thing to admit you care or you’re willing to provide financial aid. But the ones that dedicate their time to build houses, educate children, spread necessities, etc. are the people that I truly admire.
“That’s the reason we kind of exist. It’s like our Job. To give to each other. And learn from each other. To capture moments of people. So it’s really strange to have somebody ignore the obvious human being right in front of them.”
“Love one person, take care of them until you die. You know, raise kids. Have a good life. Be a good friend. And try to be completely who you are. And figure out what you personally love. And like go after it with everything you’ve got no matter how much it takes.”
“I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life.”
“You could die tomorrow and you’ve done a few movies, won some awards — that doesn’t mean anything, but if you’ve built schools or raised a child or done something to make things better for other people, then it just feels better. Life is better.”
So if one day I’m feeling sad or discouraged, I’ll choose to do/find something on this list
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
