In Becoming, Mrs. Obama shared how she cried when they left the White House for good. She cried because of the profound shift that was taking place in her life.

While she never has to work again, her passion in life is to work on projects that inspire her, which means starting a new career at age 56.

'Becoming' is the latest project under the Obamas' production deal with Netflix. The documentary is based on Michelle Obama's 2018 memoir.

She quickly learned that she had to be more reserved while Barack Obama was on the campaign trail. She ended up sacrificing her own ambition and describes her current situation as starting to own her own life again. She is free to be herself, and she has a lot more to give the world than she could when she was in the White House.

We Can Learn From Anyone

We are very quick to judge others, based on how they look and behave on the outside, but seldom do we care to know what their story might be. Every person has a story, and trying to know it before judging them and dismissing them can help us be better people.

All I want is an open heart on an open road because our growth expands exponentially just outside our comfort zone. When we are pushed past our limits, when we skip over boundaries and are confronted with the unknown, we see things differently. We think more clearly. We learn.

Life lessons don’t need a time or date to get underway

5 Ghibli lessons to life
  • Cooking and cleaning can be fun! The way these films artfully portray everyday tasks encourages us to work hard even at dusting.
  • A human relationship is more than just romance. The relationship develops from knowing the other person, having a common goal, and wanting that other person to succeed and be protected.
  • We all feel overwhelmed sometimes, but we must keep going. It will lead to a positive transformation if we choose to act. 
  • We have a lasting impact on nature, and we must be conscientious of it. "Princess Mononoke" taught us that the war humanity wages with nature is a losing one. 

  • Hardship, while difficult, can improve your outlook on life in the end.
