Over the last few months, Michelle Obama’s best-selling memoir has been such a big hit with readers, that the former First Lady was inspired to pen a guided journal to help people become their best selves.
On Tuesday, Obama’s Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice was released nationwide. The new work offers inspirational quotes from the former First Lady, along with writing prompts for an interactive and proactive way to help people work toward improving their lives, The IBTimes reports.
“It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about where you get yourself in the end. There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice. And there’s grace in being willing to know and hear others. This, for me, is how we become,” Obama says according to the journal’s description.
The journal offers more than 150 inspirational tidbits like:
“If there is one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your own voice. Write about a time when you spoke your truth to others. How did it make you feel? What did you learn?” and “Write about a specific experience when someone dislodged a dream of yours by trying to lower your expectations. How did it make you feel? How did you try to become that obstacle?”
The best-selling author told USA Today that she wanted people to be inspired.
“We don’t have to remember everything. But everything we remember has value.”
The journal is available now and is reasonably priced, ranging between $12.27 and $19.99 based on where you purchase it.
The book is not the only exciting thing going on in our “Forever First Lady”‘s life.
Obama also recently got emotional last month when she accepted the Tom Hanks Caregiver Champion award for the compassion she has shown towards wounded soldiers.
Obama attended the Elizabeth Dole Foundation’s Hidden Heroes gala in Washington D.C. and shared during her speech the eye-opening difficulties that members of military vets endure, PEOPLE reports.
She learned a lot about their issues during her husband Barack Obama’s two-term presidency.
“You all changed me forever,” she said. “You have changed the way I see service, you’ve changed the way I see war, you’ve changed the way I see this entire country. Whether we simply talk about the values we like to pride ourselves on, values like duty and honor and patriotism, or if we actually live them out.”
“I was like most Americans, sadly. I had absolutely no idea what the life of a military family member was like,” Obama admitted.
