Author: Michelle Obama
“Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”
I have literally sobbed so many times reading this. (Y’all already know how emotional I am.) I loved Michelle and Barack before, but through reading Becoming, I have found a new love for the both of them.
I absolutely adore a book that allows me to feel all the emotions. I laughed, I cried, and laughed some more as Michelle told her story. It made me miss the time that we were blessed to have Barack as President and she First Lady.
As I try to wrap my thoughts up in this post, I must realize that there are no literal words worthy enough. Even though she was a very important woman (still is), she was/is so relatable. Her and Barack’s love story was probably my favorite part of the book.
There are many nuggets of wisdom Michelle dropped throughout Becoming. But one that stayed with me and will stay with me forever is one that reminds me that there is always another way, another way to do something, another way to be something…. “There are simply other ways of being.”
Until next time, until the next book.
