In Oprah’s May 2012 magazine, “What I Know for Sure”

Posted Thursday, April 5th, 2012. Filed Under My Daily Dose

In her magazine this month, Oprah talked about sharing her wisdom with her 21 year old self…if she knew then what she knows now…

I wanted to share what she wrote in her “What I Know for Sure” page. She says, “No matter what you’re struggling through – no matter the pain or anguish – you can go inside behind your mind and observe it happening to you. Whatever it is, is isn’t you. You are the observer.
When you come to know this, you realize that even though the canvas of your life is painted with daily experiences, behaviours, reactions, and emotions, you’re the one controlling the brush.
What a wonder! It would have been nice to know this at 21. I could have saved myself a lot of heartache and self-doubt. But to fully understand, at any age, that you are artist of your own life – and can use as many colors and textures as possible (and erase when necessary!)… now, that’s a revelation.
