I just watched the final episode of the Oprah show. How moving. How beautiful her message was. If you didn't see it, you really missed out. I feel richer for having heard her words today.
What an influence for good she's been in the world. I wasn't a regular watcher of her show, but if I ever happened to be folding laundry at that time of day, I would turn it on.
Today she talked about following your dreams. That we are all here for a reason. To use your platform to do good. Whether your platform is as a writer, a wife, husband, friend, entrepreneur, secretary or whatever. It doesn't matter. Make your mark. Give love. Spread joy. Become who you were meant to become. The very best you.
I have used Oprah's words to teach my kids, to teach my Sunday school class, and to teach myself. You may not have agreed with her politics or all of her opinions, but there is no denying she was doing her best to spread love, happiness and joy to as many people in the world as she could.
She never missed of day of work in 25 years. Now that's amazing.
I will miss her, just knowing she won't be on every day at 4:00.
Good luck, Oprah, and God speed!
