Vinas, as you know, we are beings that crave visual stimulation. For many of us, the life we lead reflects our immediate environment. If there is chaos happening around us, there is chaos happening inside of us. If there is complacency surrounding us physically, there is complacency surrounding us mentally. Add to that this crazy society that constantly tells us we will never be good enough, and life gets as dry and brittle as my ends when I skip getting a trim. Yikes! I mean, in this social climate, how is anyone supposed to get their lives together?
Well….what if I told you inspiration is always at your fingertips? Literally! All you need to do is just open your Instagram. Instead of following accounts that preach to alter who you, follow accounts that help inspire you to unlock that badass that already exists within you.
Here’s a few accounts you need to hit the follow button on:
