Inspiration on the Gram

11 Instagram accounts that will inspire you to live, create, love, think, laugh, and be you, harder.


Wife. Mama. Author. And, the plug for all things self-care. Alex’s feed is a daily reminder to be more gentle, to love more, to be more.


It’s easy to get all caught up in your own world. Humans of NY reminds us that we all have a story, that everyone is going through something, and that we aren’t all that different after all. Be kind.


Smart, witty, and so eloquently spoken. Jill will make you laugh harder and think harder, at the same damn time.


Love, light, and curated good good. Nessa’s feed is dripping in black girl magic that makes you want to have a cup of tea, put on a print, go to Morocco, and love yourself beyond comprehension.


Melinda does women’s work. Her feed encourages you to take it off and shake it freely, literally and metaphorically.

You probably recognize her signature writing style, as her words are shared over and again. Her to-the-point notes are aligned with love, growth, and will feed your soul.


Pro Black. Pro Choice. Pro LGBTQ. A pro loud & proud unicorn. She organized the multi-city movement #SpeakUpSpeakOut to speak out against police brutality, hate crimes, and racially motivated violence. Her feed is private, so you’ll have to request access to all the her unapologetic & brutal truths.

It’s hard not to be inspired by #CurvyCurlyConcious goddess Shelah Marie, as she lets you in on her personal journey that is filled with laughs, beauty, dance breaks, snap rants, black love, and growth on growth on growth.


Style chameleon Charmaine has a fun and colorful feed that inspires us all to step outside of our comfort zone, take risks, wear pink hair, and not be afraid to change it up!


USA Women’s Volleyball rockstar Rachael Adams is a walking, living, breathing example of her personal motto: Strong, Capable, Enough. Using her personal story of overcoming self-doubt, she is inspiring others to do the same.


You knew I was going to throw in an animal page! The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is working to save Kenya’s wildlife and orphaned elephants. Their heroic efforts and dedication to end poaching, in a world where we are fed tragedy as a daily diet, is a reminder that there are selfless, compassionate and good people in this world. The sweet baby elephants with their little blankets is a feel-good bonus.
