In Celebration Of Her Special Day: 7 Life Lessons We’ve Learned From Michelle Obama

January 18, 2013  |  

Surely, by now you’ve learned that today is our First Lady, Michelle Obama’s 49th birthday. In just the short time we’ve known of Mrs. Obama, we watched her in pride and admiration. In that time of observation we’ve learned a few things from the our beloved First Lady, see what they are…

Never take yourself too seriously

If you’ve watched Michelle in the past 4+ years, you’ve noticed that she’s hit the dougie for the “Let’s Move” campaign, she let the family dog Boo sit on her lap while she was reading a story at a children’s hospital and during the Olympics she let one of the female wrestlers pick her up and both of the women posed for a photo. Michelle is the first lady of the United States of America and could easily have sunk into that “I’m too good for this,” mode. But instead, she’s remained down to earth, approachable and even fun. No wonder the country loves her so much.

    I listed to part of Kantor’s book on cd. I did not like it after I listened to the first couple of chapters, the author tried to make it look like that Barack and Michelle was always at odds with each other even when they had a minor disagreement. I also didn’t like the fact that the author made it look like from the staff that works with her that she was hard to work with. What is, the First Lady Michelle like things done right and in a certain way and she wanted select her speaking engagements, her clothes, etc. and they made it look like as it she was hard to work with. I stopped listening to the rest of the book. I am so glad I did not waste my money in buying this book. If I could have met the author, I would have told her about this.

  • Time to follow the lead of Michelle Obama-get a solid education, find a good man with good morals and then marry and build a strong family.

    I love the First Lady and wish her a very happy birthday….but let’s hold up with the idol worship. When she met him he was a Ivy league educated law student interning at an elite law firm…no he wasn’t ballin but he wasn’t exactly Pookie from down the street either….
