I’m quite an extreme person. I don’t really sit on the fence about the things that I like. I don’t like my friends a bit- I love them. That’s why I have a small circle of amazing friends who I know would do anything for me. Anyway, I’m waffling. My point is, I don’t like Oprah. I love her.
The OG. The gift that keeps on giving. When this woman speaks I pay attention. So. Much. Wisdom.
One of my favourite ever Oprah quote is “your life is constantly speaking to you”.
Ah. The truth.
This year hasn’t even ended but I already know that it will go down as one of those years. You know, the ones you look back at and say, damnnnnn. That was intense. The biggest highs and the biggest lows. In those times- good and bad- the best thing that I have learnt is to shut up and start paying attention.
The answers are always there. And as Oprah says herself, you don’t need to know all the steps, just the next one. And then the next one, and the next one. One baby step at a time.
But IMO the most important and first step is to get quiet. Figure out what you want. Listen to the whispers. I do that through praying, or meditation (ah, headspace my love) or time alone from everyone and everything. It doesn’t really matter how you do it but I’ve realised that you must.
Here’s Miss O saying the same thing in a much more eloquent way.
Happy whisper listening.
