Feeling Inspired by Michelle Obama's, "Becoming"

“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
