Earlier this year, I pre-ordered a book that was suggested by actress, Sophia Bush on Instagram. After I finishing Looking for Alaska by John Green (great read by the way), I now have time to dive into this journey of self — and it could not have come at a better time in my life.
I am that Girl is about speaking your truth (owning who you are) and discovering your purpose — while, forcing you to remember you are good enough. Can we say woman power? Better yet, can we say human power?
I have been thinking a lot lately about how people (as a general rule) find it easier to be negative than positive about others and themselves — social media makes this ever present. Life is so much happier when we celebrating ourselves and the lives of others.
The next few weeks, as I read this book, I will write about what I learn. I want to share this journey with you guys because we should all feel empowered, beautiful, and special. We are taught to compete with one another — and that is just not the way to live. We should collaborate not compete, encourage not discourage, empower not reject.
Just to get started on the right track, I took the pledge:
You can do the same here.
The book is written by Alexis Jones, co-founder of I am that Girl, a global movement to inspire girls to be, love, and express who they are through education, content, and community.
