BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION | MICHELLE OBAMA'S "BECOMING"

. Dienstag, April 9 .

3:39 PM As I close this book and put it inside my book shelf, I am not sure what to really discuss with you today. I love reading biographies and I love reading stories. 
The Obamas were always super intriguing to me and that's why I was more than excited to get Michelle Obama's book (- also because everyone was talking about it)... 

Throughout my life, it was hard to find women out there who inspire me or help me understanding certain things. I wouldn't call Michelle Obama my rolemodel, but I always loved her appearance...she seems to be a hard-working mom with a strong and positive potential to do good. I have not had one bad thing in my head when I guessed about her being... 
I was ready to get to know this person now through every page, every word. 

Again, I say this after and actually before every book club session - I am never sure if you like my current book club selection... I just love to alway try different things and maybe get to know issues and topics we never thought about. I never really thought about reading a book about Michelle Obama.... there I go. 
I try to show you the world through different eyes and important words. 
You can say yes to this experience or no - up to you! 

Thinking further about Michelle's book, I feel a postive vibe. I "got to know" FLOTUS and I fell in love with her words and the way she writes. 
Shall I discuss her writing style with you? Shall I tell you about her story? How she met Barack or how cute their first weeks of dating was? 
In case you still want to read the book, I am not going to spoil anything here. 

I want to discuss something that I realized several times during reading. I often caught myself smiling or thinking that Michelle is doing such or the other thing so right. I started writing a list very early with the things that made me think or which simply inspired me. 
At the end, I knew this was a great thing I wanted to share with you. 

I want to emphasize what great things we can learn or take from this book and Michelle. 
We don't need to follow her footsteps or need to be like her, but it's always great to see how other people handle certain things and situations - we never stop learning! Don't forget!

1. Be positive!
2. Be proud of your roots and where you come from!
3. Be proud of who you are!
4. Be passionate whatever you are doing!
5. Be ambitious and don't be scared to reach for the stars!
6. Feel good being a female!
7. Dare to feel!!
8. Be engaged or always give back!
9. Write a journal - writing is so important!

Those things sound so simple, but here and then we do forget about them. We always want more... too much, too soon! That's okay, learn, make your experience, but also make sure to maintain those super simple and easy things! 

I ended this book with a good feeling and I am happy that I had a little insight into another female's life - even though we don't share the same career. I learned many things or at least recalled myself to live more...and just be in the moment, because these are the things that matter. Focusing on more important things which don't distract me. 

I just feel good about her words and I am happy that I got the book!
How did you feel about the book while reading it?

Have fun reading it!
