Oprah gave us twenty-five years of her life… and now it’s our turn to change the world.
Something happened to me yesterday, or technically, I suppose it was today since it is 4:07 am. (You see, that is the sort of chaos that happens when you have an Aha! Moment — courtesy of Oprah Winfrey and all that she touches — you don’t sleep, and reference words like ‘yesterday’ get fuzzy.)
So, the show is ending, and while watching the second to the last episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show, I got one more rather epic wake-up call. She’s out of here, gone, fled the building… and she’s leaving us in charge of this planet.
Yes, there is the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) where we can find many of Oprah’s Favorite Things… er, I mean, people, but the whole in-my-living-room-every-afternoon-with-a-show-that-alters-the-way-I-see-the-world-and-more-importantly-see-myself thing is over. Our worlds have been rocked and she’s no longer going to be coming by everyday to say, “You’re awesome. I believe in you. You can totally do this.”
She just wants us to go rock it.
