I am still on a high after attending Oprah's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus event in Atlanta, Georgia last month. It included a workbook that was eye-opening (I actually discovered something new about myself, sitting in a stadium with 12K people!) I'm a new fan of The Rock after hearing him speak so lovingly about his family and heritage. I also was empowered to focus on overall wellness, which is a new goal for me. In fact, I was so incredibly inspired by Aunty Oprah that I redid my 2020 vision board. That's real!! I purchased as much as I could carry and one of my favorite is her book titled, The Path Made Clear. Some of my favorite quotes are:
"We have what we need to fulfill our destiny. But we have to bring it out. And you can't bring it out being against yourself." - Joel Osteen
"Find your lane. Make space for the flow to show itself. Follow the natural rhythm of your life, and you will discover a force far greater than your own." - Oprah
"I want to shake you, and rattle you, and stir you up to understand that every moment is a gift. Every second is a gift. Every thought is a gift. Every idea is a gift. Every opportunity is a gift. Everybody you meet is a gift. You are gifted with opportunities to begin to maximize what you've got." - Bishop T. D. Jakes
"I don't believe in coincidence. I know there is a divine order to the magnificent mystery of our lives". - Oprah
"Your life isn't about a big break. It's about taking one significant life-transforming step at a time." - Oprah
"There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It's why you were born. And how you become most truly alive." - Oprah
Since I recreated my 2020 Vision board, I have been more action-oriented and purpose-driven. I'm focusing on being mindful, intentional, and diligent with my personal and work lives. I look forward to reaching milestones in 2020!! I can. I will. Watch me!!!
