Oprah's Farewell

One of the amazing blogs Simply Luxurious  written by Shannon Albes. She really has an art of expressing the written language in the really beautiful way. She covers all aspects from Fashion to how to manage your finances! Today, I expressed to her I would be featuring her as a Guest Blog on my site and she responded, 'What a lovely compliment, thank you so much' Well Shannon, your very welcome and thanks so much for being part of my blog. I feel really honored to highlight such a talented writer. I'm featuring one of the powerful blogs that really touched my heart, as it had to do with Oprah...Read on

In a custom L’Wren Scott coral silk dress with degrade chiffon belt, Oprah Winfrey walked onto the stage of The Oprah Winfrey Show for the last time. The guest, the best guest, the only guest that was necessary, was Oprah herself. Introducing the last hour as her love letter to her viewers. Oprah spoke of the many lessons she had learned, and so I’ve collected a few of them here as I had to write them down for myself, and wanted to share with you as well. While I thoroughly enjoyed the show, my favorite part was the last shot, as she finished the long walk through her Harpo staff and was greeted in the front of her office by Sadie, her blonde cocker spaniel, as we watch Oprah with Sadie in her arms saying, “We did it Sadie. We did it.” Someone who always listened to her calling, who is and was strong enough to be who she knew she could be and will always be an inspiration to the world. Here’s to living our best life.  Thank you Oprah for reminding us that we can.

“Be more of yourself.” 
“We are all called. Everyone has a calling. And your real job in life is to figure out what that is and get about the business of doing it.”
“That is what a calling is. It lights you up and lets you know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be, doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. And that is what I want for all of you.”
“Live from the heart of yourself.”
“You have to make a living, I understand that, but you also have to know what sparks the light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.”
“Start embracing the life that is calling you and use your life to serve the world.”
“Nobody but you is responsible for your life.”
“Don’t wait for somebody else to fix you, to save you or to complete you.”
“We often block our own blessings because we don’t believe we are inherently good enough or smart enough or pretty enough or worthy enough.”
“You are worthy because you are born and because you are here. Your being here, your being alive makes worthiness your birthright. You alone are enough.”
“Everybody wants to be validated.”
“Be still and know it.”
“Wait and listen for the guidance that is greater than my meager mind.  The only time I have ever made mistakes was when I didn’t listen.”
“What are the whispers in your life? Your life is speaking to you. What is it saying?”
“Your life is always speaking to you.”
