Self Love Notes II by Michelle G Stradford is a collection of poetry intended to uplift and motivate. The book is divided into three parts: inspire, imperfect, and grow. Together, these three parts represent a path to self-love as we are encouraged to picture a brighter life that we may pursue and embrace. This is a significant book for recognizing your own value and discovering a happier you, with well over a hundred verses and concepts to consider. We are advised to firmly resist letting past bonds keep us from accessing the future. We are also told that sometimes outgrowing people is acceptable. Stradford inspires us to think confidently about our abilities and maximize our potential through the poetry in this collection.
Along with the brilliant poetic writing style, the formatting is well executed. The illustrations bring out the appeal of the poetry. The titling of each piece of writing, for instance, "Rediscovering me", "Summon your Instinct", etc., is quite eye-catching. These poems are the ideal length for a convenient and delightful read. A page after each of the three sections titled "My self-love notes" encourages readers to note down positive things about themselves. This approach is quite unique and engaging. The book has precise, simple meanings and practical teachings that anybody could relate to, which is commendable. Also, the poems' topics have a smooth flow, making them more intriguing. One can come back to read this book at any time. Overall, Self Love Notes II by Michelle G Stradford is an excellent book for anyone looking to improve their self-esteem and grow through their flaws.
