The ANote2Self meditation journals were created with self-care, healing and emotional evolution in mind. Author, Alex Elle, wanted to give journalers an outlet where they could not only feel safe but be open and honest with their healing process, on paper. #ANote2Self came to fruition in 2013 during the writing of the author's first book, "Words from a Wanderer." The hashtag made its debut to promote positive self-affirmations and to encourage others, writers or not, to take part in being kind to themselves. Years later, this movement has attracted thousands of people worldwide.
