When I was 10 years old, I decided I wanted to be the next Oprah. Years later, I stand by the decision because… just look at her. If 60 looks this good, you can imagine what all the years between and after are going to entail.
The lady in red, who turned 60 this past January, is giving us life in this Badgley Mischka dress. The heels are from Sarah Jessica Parker’s new line (available at Nordstrom.)
In the issue , which hits stands May 13, Ms. Winfrey gives us all sage advice on aging gracefully and being grateful for the lives we live and the bodies we have. On body acceptance and how she finally got over her hang ups, she said:
‘One day I literally woke up and thought ”My god, these knees have been with me for 60 years. Wow! I’ve had these elbows for 60 years. My heart has been beating for 60 years. The feet I stand on have carried me for 60 years.’’ And when you think about it that way, you can be nothing but grateful.’
When asked about aging:
Call me crazy, but I’ve never really understood our culture’s fear of getting older. The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey.
‘Think about it: You get one chance to be 25…38…44…61…and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?
If you’re blessed to enough to grow older, there’s so much wisdom to be gained from celebrating the process with vibrancy and vigour and grace.’
As a throwback and a salute to herself– a testament to what time can do for a person– she even posted her original audition footage for the Oprah Winfrey Show from 1983.
I love it!
