7 Memoirs That Will Motivate You To Live Your Best Life

While novels take the cake for imagination, sensation, and drama, there's nothing like a great memoir or autobiography that gives an unexplainable inspiration and helps us believe anything is possible.

One of the things I've loved about reading biographies is that I feel like I've gotten to know one of my faves and her story. A lot of times we never know what someone went through before they got to the platform we see them on now. We know it's possible to go from foster care to hosting award shows, or from an overlooked Black girl to being the first African American FLOTUS. And while that's crazy motivating, to read that they experienced racism, disappointments, not being taken seriously, and being left out of countless men's clubs along the way, has me feeling like I have no excuse not to follow my dreams.

Check out our picks in autobiographies and memoirs below to spark inspiration in you to lead your best life:

“The Last Black Unicorn” by Tiffany Haddish

Get ready to laugh, cry, and everything in between with Tiffany Haddish's memoir The Last Black Unicorn.

This book reveals Tiffany was in an abusive marriage, suffered abuse while growing up in foster care, and struggled to read beyond a ninth grade level. And to be honest, that only scratches the surface of what she's been through. Still, this is probably why she's one of the most successful yet down-to-earth actresses out there (and why she doesn't feel any shame spilling tea about other celebrities like Beyonce). Besides, she's not just a one trick pony. Homegirl isn't going anywhere anytime soon. So why not get motivated by her story?

7 Underrated Signs That He's Truly 'Marriage Material'

While in an interview a few months back, someone asked me what I personally thought it meant for someone to be “marriage material.” Off top, the first thing that came out of my mouth is that it had to be an individual who actually desires marriage (more on that in a bit) because that kind of person will be proactive about doing what needs to be done in order to prepare for that kind of life journey.
