I have always thought of Oprah Winfrey as one of my girlfriends. I think she makes most women feel this way.
I tried to sit down and write a lovely post about how much Oprah has meant to me these past 25 years and I just couldn't put my thoughts together. I wanted to post something, because those who know me, know that I think of Oprah almost like family. I love her. I get defensive when someone teases me about her. I guess I will put a few thoughts down so that I can have some closure as Oprah finishes her last two shows.
I have watched her everyday at 4pm for all of my adult life. She has taught me so much about being a woman and she's had such a positive influence on me. Here are just a handful of things that I have learned from Oprah:
. I have learned to live in the moment.
. I have learned to have an attitude of gratitude.
. I have learned about forgiveness.
. I have learned to take responsibility and live my best life.
. I have learned about managing money.
. I have learned that being overweight is about something deeper.
. I have learned about "aha" moments!
. I have learned that chaos and clutter can drain you.
. I have learned about giving.
. I have learned that you should surround yourself w/ people that bring out the best in you.
. I have learned how to pick the right bra and that v-necks look better if you have big boobs!
. I have learned that anything is possible and to never let fear hold me back.
I know I've learned so much more from Oprah, but these are the things that stick out the most for me. I was 16 when she first went on the air. Although I am
grieving sad that Oprah will no longer be on the air everyday at 4pm...I am so very thankful for the 25 years she gave us.
Thank-You Oprah Winfrey!
It has been a great pleasure to watch and learn from you all these years!
I will miss you my friend!
