Beautiful You by Rosie Molinary
Asia Adams, Staff Writer
Beautiful You is unlike any personal growth book I’ve ever read. While I’ve found that others tend to be repetitive, even cliché at times, this book delivers a fresh approach, and I am grateful to have come across it. From the first page, I was hooked. With 365 prompts for journaling all falling under the umbrella of acceptance and appreciation for oneself, it is wonderful for those seeking a short, daily read. It is practical in that it only requires a few minutes a day, and at the same time, provides more than enough material to leave me feeling affected (in the best way possible), and satisfied. My favorite prompts so far? Day 2: Pledge Allegiance to Yourself and Day 28: Stop Comparing. I give Beautiful You two thumbs up, as it has resonated quite well with me. It provides the perfect means for daily self-reflection, and is quite literally an innovative how-to guide for boosting a healthy sense of self, while decreasing self-deprecation. Every minute that I spend with it in hand is truly time well spent.
