Following on from the phenomenal success of Michelle Obama’s bestselling memoir, Becoming (since its release last November, it has sold over 11.5 million copies worldwide), the former First Lady has released an empowering new journal that will take readers on their own personal journey of becoming.
Feeling lost? Struggling to find your voice? This journal is for you. With an inspiring introduction from Michelle and more than 150 questions and quotes to fill out, Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice is “designed to help readers reflect on their personal and family history, their goals, challenges, and dreams, what moves them and brings them hope, and what future they imagine for themselves and their community.”
Activities in the journal include writing down one struggle, failure and success and explaining what you’ve learned from each of them. As Michelle writes in the journal, “I hope you’ll use this journal to write down your experiences, thoughts, and feelings, in all their imperfections, and without judgment. . . . We don’t have to remember everything. But everything we remember has value.”
“This isn’t an exercise to sugar-coat your experiences, or write down something different from what you actually feel, or try to will yourself towards some perfect outcome. You don’t have to journal every day, and you certainly don’t have to feel like you have anything important to say. One of my favourite entries recounted an otherwise uneventful night at a neighbourhood restaurant where an old man punched the perfect playlist into a jukebox,” the former First Lady told Style.
With Christmas fast approaching, Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice is the perfect gift to inspire your New Years resolutions and get the new year off to the right start.
