What Does Oprah Winfrey Know For Sure?

So I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed last week (which that in itself is a momentous occasion because honestly Twitter has been holding my heart for a while) and saw Oprah Winfrey sent out a message about her new book.

Two things immediately ran through my mind:

1. How did Oprah release a new book without me hearing about it?

2. Why hadn’t any of my so called “friends” bought me the book?

Everyone knows that I love Oprah Winfrey maybe not as much as my mother does but close enough. When I was younger my mom used to tell me that Oprah was my god mother and I believed her. Yes, I was gullible and should have questioned that but hey, I was young so I went along with it.

Per Amazon:

As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show – the highest-rated program of its kind, launched her own television network, become the nation’s only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons—which, for fourteen years, she’s shared in O, The Oprah Magazine’s widely popular “What I Know For Sure” column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation.

 

Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful cloth bound book with a ribbon marker, packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme—joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power—these essays offer a rare, powerful and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world’s most extraordinary women—while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again.

As someone who enjoys her monthly columns, I am excited to read this book. So much so that it is already on my Kindle and has been pushed to the very top of my reading list.

This book does pose an interesting question for me though: What do I know for sure? And while I will never be able to write it as eloquently as Ms. Winfrey, it is something that I need to begin to put into words.
