alexandra elle  author + poet || @theheygirlpodcast book 3: neon soul (on sale now)

written in 2013. still relevant today.
starting over > staying stuck

be your best + authentic self, regardless. you can only be you—and that is the goal.

when i chose to believe that self-love could fill my emptiness, the blurred lines of my life became clear. be bold enough to submit to loving yourself immensely and entirely. it will take practice. you will be unsure at times. but when you get it, when you reach your peak of self-acceptance, self-forgiveness, and self-love, the adoration you'll get from outsiders will be a bonus—not a necessity.

neon soul, page 36, "bold" (available for purchase in stores and online)

note to self: don't be afraid to bloom wildly & lose petals as you unfold.

written in 2013 and still holds truth today. i am proud that i haven't let hurt + negativity stunt my growth. we can't always control what happens to us in life, but we do have a choice in how we decide to heal. don't let your moments of hurt, sadness, and disappointment be the deciding factor of your ability to love fully.

quote from my very first book (4 years ago), "words from a wanderer."

trust yourself. honor the healing process.

in my new book, neon soul, i write a lot about healing from hurt & preparing for joy. you can order your copy at or find it your local book store.

people are going to let us down. things aren't always going to go our way. even in the most trying moments of life, forgiveness can grant us freedom.

i am abundantly grateful for where we are + what's to come.

gentle reminder.

make space for love that's safe, healthy, and functional. love should encourage us to stand tall, not cower or crumble.

neon soul, page 107, "the difference"

buy your copy at a bookstore near you or at the link in my bio.

note to my younger self.

this takes practice. we may never be perfect it, but we are worthy of trying our best to let go.

today's mantra: make space for new beginnings.

gratitude, understanding, acceptance.
