“Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”
― Michelle Obama, Becoming
I am reading Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, and while only a few chapters in, I am feeling uplifted and enthused about the power to connect via sharing one’s own story. I love her straight-forwardness as she delivers her words, revealing the highs and lows, the gems and the dirt, of her experiences.
As I work on my own memoir related to a growing up and becoming a more healed adult (a moving target :), hearing someone else’s words that are so honest about her journey gives me courage to make my story as genuine as possible.
I highly recommend reading her book, it will inspire your own writing. View more inspiring quotes from her book
