1. Life is a journey to teach you who you are.
  2. When people show you who they are, believe them – the first time.
  3. Live your life from truth and you will survive everything.
  4. Turn your wounds into wisdom.
  5. Be grateful.
  6. Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.
  7. Get God on the whisper.

Almost 20 years ago, I sat in that audience and listened to Oprah speak to my Wellesley sisters and me. I can’t tell you how many times since that day her words echoed in my mind at difficult moments and helped me find my way forward.  Thank you, Oprah.
