Two Oprah Moments I Can’t Get Outta My Head

June 7, 2011

Yes, I’m on Oprah fan.
(please, please, please… please keep reading even if you’re not).
Whether or not you would watch her show daily, she’s a total inspiration.
During her recent three-part finale (!),
I almost lost it (ok, tears were in def. in effect) when
Kristin Chenoweth sang “For Good” from the musical, Wicked,”
as hundreds of graduates from Morehouse College who received an Oprah scholarship fled the stage holding lights in Oprah’s honor. It was incredible and awe-inspiring.
If you haven’t seen or heard it, watch it here.
Another amazing Oprah moment during the final weeks?
During her “besties” ep with Gayle, her best friend for more than 25 years.
We should all be so lucky to have one friendship in our lives like this. They’re really lucky.
While I have close friends, I can’t say I’ve yet to be this lucky to have a friend for that long that I’m still as close with on a daily basis. Life moves you around, ya know?
My favorite part of the show was when Gayle responded to how people ask her if she’s jealous of her bff, Op’s. Her response?
“I feel like I’m
standing in her light,
I never feel like I’m
standing in her shadows.”


Think about that! I have been obsessing over this the past week because it’s such a powerful reminder to always cheer on our successful friends and think about how you can rise even higher,
not think of jealously during your bestie’s best moments.
I LOVE IT. Like want to scream it from the roof tops, LOVE IT.

    Definitely two amazing moments! The whole finale was killing me- couldn't stop the water works! I think it's amazing how close Oprah and Gayle are, and I think what Gayle said was just perfect.
