No, Oprah is not really my religion. Is that even a thing? I thought that was Beyoncé?
But, Oprah is my “best friend in my head”, and has been for a long time.
Michelle Obama is probably a close second. But not sure if I wanna be her best friend or just be her, so that one’s pending…
Some of my favorite Oprahisms:
“You have to know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world.”“Everybody wants to fulfill the highest, truest expression of yourself as a human being. And because I understand that, I understand that if you work in a bakery and that’s where you want to be, and that may be what you’ve always wanted to do … then that’s for you. And there’s no difference between you and me, except that’s your platform, that’s your show. So my understanding of that has allowed me to reach everyone.”“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.”
I could wax poetic about Oprah. And no I’m not a housewife with a daytime TV obsession.
I’ve just always been drawn to her magic–the way she does great work and makes major moves, so seemingly effortlessly. All without stepping on toes or creating a line of enemies along the way…instead, with every move she makes, she seems to also pave the way for someone else.
That, to me, is #goals. To build an empire and make a real impact, while lifting others up in the process.
Not to mention, Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire yall. And one of very few, as far as female billionaires go.
…Did I mention she is #goals ?
Oprah is my Spirit Animal ;)
