Happy birthday Oprah!


There are many quotes Oprah is famous for and that I have jotted down in my book of wisdom and here is a selection of a few of them. Please feel free to comment and share what you think about these words of wisdom and advice, we always love to hear from you!

“What we dwell on is who we become.”

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

“Learn from every mistake, because every experience, encounter, and particularly your mistakes are there to teach you and force you into being more of who you are.”

“The commonality in the human experience is the same. We have the same sorrows, and the same triumphs. Joy is joy is joy.”

“I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.”

“I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.”

“Surround yourself only with people who are going to take you higher.”


I also found a video that has both made me think and laugh a few times that I find well worth sharing! In this video Bishop TD Jakes talks about forgiveness and letting go of the past as part of the Oprah Life Class series. Oprah’s reaction is so Oprah : )

When you hold on to your history, you do it at the expense of your destiny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXIGlL8b0y8

Happy birthday Oprah! May you continue to bring joy and food for thought into our world!
