If you don’t see that your story matters, chances are that no one else will either. So even though it isn’t always easy, it’s important for you to find the strength to share your truth. Because the world needs to hear it.
Was there any doubt that this one would be 5 stars??
If you have NOT read Becoming by Michelle Obama, go out right now and pick up a copy.
It truly was one of my favorite books of the year – such an amazing, and powerful story.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your own voice.
As Michelle Obama was writing her Becoming book, she really had to dig deep into her memories. For some of the years, she had journals to help guide her writing but that wasn’t always the case.
She found herself wishing she had written down her moments – the truly important ones – that guided her life.
And with that thought, she began to write this guided journal.
Each page has a new set of prompts and every few pages change theme.
From your most memorable holiday dinners, to favorite moments with mom and dad to the music that shaped your life – Michelle has found a way to include all of those in this short journal.
The only thing I’m hesitating on is filling it out – it’s such a pretty journal that I really don’t want any mispellings or crossing-outs. (hence, I am pre-writing all of my entries, so I don’t make a mistake!)
All in all – I love this!
A huge thank you to Mimi from Goodreads for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review!
