Today I got to breathe in the same room with Oprah

Today I got to breathe in the same room with Oprah. It’s not my tea date, but it’s coming!

I have a respect for Oprah. I admire how she always sees the good. Her fame has nothing to do with my respect, but it’s her actions. Today as I sat listening to her, my seat neighbor asked me had I always followed her. I did watch her show many evenings after school, but as I have gotten older, I took time to learn her story.

I see me in her. I see so many of my girlfriends in her. I especially take note of her tenacity, drive, and her ability to be true to herself.

I have asked myself who I am many times. I know who I am just like you know who you are. I’m a lover at heart. I have been a people pleaser. I use to care what others thought of me and I must always reference things (show texts, messages, etc) to prove myself. I know I’m a genuine person with a genuine purpose, but I use to allow society to drive me crazy. I say use to because effective … now I’m living my life with a goal; to be who God placed me on earth to be. My superpowers are to love, to remind people of how great they are and to do that I must learn to better love me. To do this I must do things that align with my goals. This means pulling away from things, saying more, not being available, and anything else that will help me live my Devine purpose.

What are your superpowers? How do you use them to be a better person?

I am a woman who realized life is what you make it! I am a mom, an ex-wife (two times), a lawyer, an educator, a librarian, and most important an overall loving person! I am me and I am taking #ThisThingCalledLife and embracing it!
