Birthday anxiety. You may recall the other week it was my birthday. Writing that gives me anxiety 🧠🤯☠️👀 You see I struggle with birthdays and this year being vocal about my own mental health issues around that day brought to light how many of YOU also feel the same. After years of silent pain on my bday and handling the whole situation and my PTSD in various different ways, I feel I’ve learnt a lot on how to best manage making the most out of a day that I enjoy the least. I’ve just published my ‘how to overcome Birthday anxiety’ blog post on my blog www.rochellefox.com.au 🎈 wether you yourself have issues with birthdays or celebrations or know someone that does, I hope this post will give you some hope, help and love, to get you through your own challenges. You’re not alone, so please don’t ever be. Lots of love Fox 🦊 A post shared by Fox (@rochelle_fox) on

Humans of New York | @humansofny

At this point we’ve probably all heard of Humans of New York, but I couldn’t leave it off my list of the most inspiring instagram accounts for women in their twenties! @humansofny is a collection of wisdom gathered by Brandon Stanton from the streets of New York City. Follow his account for tear-jerking stories, hilarious videos and life-altering perspectives on day-to-day life. It doesn’t get more real than this!

“My husband had a sudden heart attack a few months ago. It was just a few blocks from here. They called me in to identify his body and then just let me walk right out onto 7th Avenue. I felt so lost. My friends were wonderful and supportive but eventually everyone moves on with their lives. I don’t have children. And I’m not a workaholic. So I was left with this intense loneliness and void. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. Then one day I started researching dogs that are good for grief and depression. And ‘poodle’ kept popping up. But when I went to the rescue fair, all the poodles were gone. There was this one old dog in the back that nobody was looking at. She was skin and bones. She was trembling and scared and mucus was running out of her eyes. She seemed so fragile. She reminded me of myself. I named her Grace because I think my husband sent her to me. She’s my first dog. She’s been pure joy. We spend all our time together. She’s gained her weight back. She comes with me to therapy. We’re getting better together.” A post shared by Humans of New York (@humansofny) on

3 years ago today i self-published ‘milk and honey’. as i sat on that kitchen table putting it together i did not dare envision that we’d be here today. could never have imagined that this book would change the course of my life so drastically. my intention was to share an intimate part of myself with my readers (shoutouts to my day ones!!!). i thought that we’d sell a few copies (meaning my friends would purchase them to make me feel better 😙). and then i’d finish my undergrad. find a job or move onto my masters. but like all the best laid plans—they came to a halt. i could never have imagined that over 2 million of you would own a copy. that today it would still be sitting on the new york times bestsellers list. at #2!! right behind #thesunandherflowers !!!!?!whatislife 😩🙏🏽 i spend everyday grateful. trying to focus on love. learning. asking myself how i can do better. be better. how i can share with those around me. i am blessed to have your love and support. i am blessed to be able to do this. thank you. i hope to always stay grounded and honest with my artistic expression. thank you for your unparalleled and magnetic belief and strength ❤ A post shared by rupi kaur (@rupikaur_) on

Bonus: Sam Brown | @perfectionismproject

Yes, that’s me! My insta account is @perfectionismproject and when I’m not sharing quotes to help you make the most of your twenties and become your best self, I’m writing bloody long insta captions and posting unfiltered photos so you can see what my real life is like (because I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get a little sick of feeling like everyone else has got their shit together). You can follow me here!

By far the most important thing I’ve learned this year 👆🏽✨🌿 . I know I’m not the only one who’s put an insane amount of pressure on myself to have everything figured out 💭 The funny thing is, I’ve never actually found that pressure to help 🙈 . Instead, that pressure magnified the importance of every decision to a point where I felt too crippled to make any decision at all ❌ That pressure made me to feel disheartened and lost even though I was doing my best 😞 That pressure made me dismiss all the wonderful things I already had around me because I was constantly wanting more 👠 . Letting go of the need for everything in my life to be neat and certain has been the best thing I’ve ever done 💃🏼 I am here, I am learning, I am living, I am loving. And that’s all that matters ❤️ . 📸 @perfectionismproject

A post shared by SAM BROWN | @perfectionismproject

A few weeks ago I wrote a huge post about how I improved my self-confidence (which btw is devoid of confidence ‘boosters’ – I wanted to talk about the stuff that ACTUALLY works! ✨). . I used to believe that I would finally feel confident in myself when I could do everything perfectly 💁🏻The only problem was that, because I was putting so much pressure on myself to be perfect, I ended up doing nothing 😴 I over-planned, I procrastinated, I made excuses (all of which felt real btw) so I could justify falling short of my crazy expectations. And I had no confidence in myself because I was never producing anything and I was never achieving my goals 🙈 . In the past few months particularly I’ve felt a huge shift in my self-confidence ✨ It’s happened because I’ve allowed myself to be a learner, to be a beginner, to stumble around as much as I need 🤓 When I gave myself permission to be imperfect, I started doing so much more and using my time so much better💃🏼 And I started to think of myself as a doer, rather than a dreamer 💭 . What’s your thoughts and experience with this? I’d love to hear! 👇🏽 A post shared by SAM BROWN | @perfectionismproject

Almost every morning, I look at my emails and Instagram as soon as I wake up 🙈 But today I decided I wasn’t going to look at anything until I got everything on my to-do list was done 📝 . Normally the first thing I want to do when I can’t think of what to write is distract myself with my phone 📱but today I decided to push through it (without using Forest app 🌿 like I usually do) 🤓 I got my 2 blog posts done an hour quicker than planned 💃🏼 and I’m really starting to learn that procrastination is much more tiring than hard work ever is (and a lot less stressful) 😂 Anyone else have this experience? . Also swipe left for the unedited version of this photo 📸 I use VSCO (filter A5 and a few other tweaks) and Snapseed to de-saturate the background
