It’s not about being perfect, it’s not about where you get yourself in the end. There is power in allowing yourself to be known and heard in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice.Michelle Obama, Becoming
Today, I completed “Becoming” by Michelle Obama. I am sad that it ended. An invisible thread exists between us – Michelle and I. Listening to her every morning while driving to work in the last few days have been a delightful experience.
The fact that she looks like me, uses phrases like me, loves similar music, shares my sentiments about so many things – makes her a kindred spirit. She has my attention more so because she excelled to the highest position of honor as First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Each day, I looked forward to hearing her authentic voice. If anyone else had read her book in Audible, I doubt if I would have been as drawn to listen.
“A journey toward a better self…”Michelle Obama, Becoming
Michelle taught me that no matter how well you do, there is still room for self-doubt, fears, insecurities, grief, love of family, friends, and mankind in general – because we are human. We live, laugh, love on every level. All of that is fine as long as you have the will to stay the course on a journey toward a better self.
My Truth on the 44th day of 2019, comes from FLOTUS 44 who ends her book confirming there is power in owning your story while using your authentic voice. I am forever inspired.
Peace and blessings, Davina
