Inspiration comes in many shapes and forms. For author and wellness consultant Alexandra Elle it takes the shape of a Post-it note. Living in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and children, she shares uplifting mottos and daily reminders through notes that she then posts on Instagram.
Her poignant writing clearly resonates with others, with her Instagram page amassing more than 500 thousand followers. Now, Elle also passes her knowledge through workshops and retreats that are centered around assisting others in finding their voices through storytelling, poetry, and narrative writing.
“The highlight of my career has been building a community near and far, in-person and online,” she shared with Create & Cultivate. “It blows my mind how writing, storying telling, and standing in comradery can shift the dynamics of sisterhood and self-love in such a positive way, time and time again.”
But even with that many followers, she admits it’s still hard for her to open up. “I still feel vulnerable when I share my writing. It’s my heart’s work. I think vulnerability is good, so I lean into it. People relate to authenticity and I truly believe that being vulnerable helps amplify that.”
