Alex Elle's #Anote2Self Journal Challenge.


Goal for October: fill up a journal.


Hi Humans,

The month of October will be busy for me so I wanted to find a way that I could settle down and write more during my hectic schedule. This writing challenge might do the trick. The #Anote2Self challenge is simple; fill up a journal with thoughts, poems, notes to yourself, prayers, etc. during the month of Oct. In return you may find peace of mind, self-love, relaxation and a few free gifts from me. During the challenge I ask you set aside 15 minutes a day (2x a day if you can-AM/PM) for writing a meditation w/ no distractions. No phones, computers or Internet. You will not have to share your work via social media. This challenge is first and foremost for you. However, if you choose to share you can use the hashtag #anote2selfJCOnce a week during this challenge I will host a giveaway. The giveaways will consist of free journals, pens, stationary, etc. I will be sending emails at the start of each week (SUNday), to inspire and encourage you (and I) to keep pushing, going and filling pages. This challenge should help anyone with writers block or folks who are looking to start journaling, writing, etc. :)

I am looking forward to writing with you all and channeling a deeper self in the process. Please click the link to sign up if you wish.

Kiss Them For Me


I am a wonderful dreamer
who goes through every door
seeking marmalade skies
and soul penetrating lullabies.

I am a girl
who does not kiss
on the first date,
but would rather
make you laugh
at the ridiculousness
of fate.

not black enough.
not white enough.
not light enough.
not her enough.
not straight enough.
not long enough.
not curly enough…
not mixed enough for your liking.
not tall enough.
not skinny enough.
not thick enough.
not in love enough to stay.
not faithful enough to make it work.
not true enough not to lie.
not here enough not to stray.
not small enough.
not wise enough to know
I’m not me enough for you…
but I’m still good enough for me.
