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. 

love // light,



I’m game.

The earliest evidence of ancient dentistry we have is an amazingly detailed dental work on a mummy from ancient Egypt that archaeologists have dated to 2000 BCE. The work shows intricate gold work around the teeth. This mummy was found with two donor teeth that had holes drilled into them. Wires were strung through the holes and then around the neighboring teeth.

Dear young Black men. Sag your pants if you want to. Wear super tight skinny jeans if you want to. Wear hoodies if you want to. Wear your long locks, your dashiki, cover yourself in tattoos - yes even on your face. Wear all white. It is not true that if we dress the way that whiteness determine is the most ‘professional’ that you will be granted more freedom, more jobs, better salaries or will it keep you out of prison. The prison is full of generations of Black men who never sagged their pants at all. Black men have never made more than .74 for every dollar a white man makes extending as far back to 1970, when it was .69 and I imagine these men were not sagging their pants either.

When white people went all the way to the African continent to get out of doing work (only to turn around and call us lazy after African enslaved people have literally done all the work) and they saw us as kings, queens, farmers, artists, weavers and we were also not sagging our pants, they still began a genocide whose effects persist even today. If that was all it took, just to dress like they say, or speak like they say and only when spoken to, then don’t you think our ancestors would have tried that? And in fact many of them did, tried very hard to meet all the standards that were established, assimilated into their schools, adopted their religion, speaking their language and we still are not free. Black men get shot and murdered in suits, and sweaters, black boys in tshirts and hoodies. The way that they dress has NOTHING to do with the war that has been declared on their bodies. I applaud every Black man trying to stay alive, saying fuck you to ‪#‎respectabilitypolitics‬ with your braidup tight and the ones who hold their own in a suit and those wearing long robes. I will always fight for your right to wear whatever you please, and to have the self-determination to make your own choices about your bodies.

PRO TIP: watching “how it’s made” is SUCH a good way to combat an anxiety attack! There’s soothing music, a soothing narrator who’s intonation never changes (narrators never yell or change their speaking pace), it’s engaging enough to keep you occupied but doesn’t force you to think too hard!

also sometimes the narrator makes bad puns

You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.

Reminded me of this: 

One day Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it and he asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah” (At-Tirmidhi)
