Becoming by Michelle Obama
“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” - Michelle Obama
I was so looking forward to receiving my gifted copy of Michelle Obama’s book in the mail a few months back. I was so grateful that I attended a MindBody Bold Conference in September where Michelle Obama was one of the keynote speakers and we were gifted her book to be mailed out to us when it released. I started reading it in March and finished it over 2 short weeks. I love the feeling of not being able to put a book down!
After hearing Michelle speak in California in September, I knew reading her book would only offer more insight and golden nuggets!
Two major takeaways were the power of education and the importance of taking care of your well-being through exercise and nutrition. Two things I have benefited from personally and in my career.
It was also a gentle reminder of how blessed I am and we are as citizens of Canada or in her case, the US. We have many opportunities to educate ourselves, grow, share, communicate and better our lives through health and education. It’s not an easy decision or road to walk down.
Earning certifications takes hard work and dedication. Learning healthy lifestyle habits takes consistency and growth. But man did both opportunities shape who I am today🙏
If you’ve read her book, what was your major takeaway?!👇
