My mind is kind of spinning – a little on overload and a little overly fatigued from all that transpired yesterday while attending Oprah’s Lifeclass Live in Toronto. It was an amazing experience – one that I am sure I will never forget and I’m going to try to share some nuggets of wisdom that I picked up here with you.
Before I do that, though, indulge me by allowing me to share an observation. None of what was said at the Lifeclass was anything new. Ok, hold on, don’t get me wrong here and think that I’m trying to say that it was stale or unnecessary or not worth my time. What I mean is this: we already know all of these things that are being shared in Oprah’s Lifeclass. Truly. If we were to take the time to really listen to our hearts, to really listen to other people, to be open, and come from a place of love at all times, and to always be true and authentic to ourselves, we wouldn’t need Lifeclass, because we would already be putting it all in practice.
But here’s the thing. We forget. We suppress. We get too busy with the daily grind; we get too wrapped up in technology; we try too hard to be what we think others want us to be instead of who we truly are; we let our insecurities, peer pressure, and our egos get in the way. And that’s why Oprah’s Lifeclasses are so important. Oprah and her guests serve as our reminders. They put the things that we are overlooking in our hectic lives into perspective. They help us overcome the blueprint of our past and the script in our heads.
