We all could use a dose of positivity in our lives, let alone our Instagram feeds. Author and wellness consultant Alexandra Elle is here to do just that, posting daily reminders about self-care and healing your mind.
Living in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and children, Elle admits that writing came into her life by way of therapy and the exploration of healing through journaling. Now, she passes it on, teaching workshops and retreats centered around assisting others in finding their voices through storytelling, poetry, and narrative writing rooted in truth without shame.
“I still feel vulnerable when I share my writing,” she admitted in an interview with Create & Cultivate. “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.”
Indeed, people are relating to her. With more than 500 thousand followers on Instagram, several books to her name, as well as her own podcast, Elle has got her work cut out for her.
“The highlight of my career has been building a community near and far, in person and online,” she shared. “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.”
