From teaching me the true joy that comes from giving to inspiring me to get my own TV show to continue her mission, Oprah has truly inspired me to live my best life and help others do the same. I’ve been in her presence twice: at the Oscar After Party in LA and at her “Live Your Best Life Weekend” in NY. I would love to just meet her and say thanks but until then (and after), i’ll keep working to improve humanity and make people feel good about themselves, just like she did.

How long will we all be Americans for THIS time?

As I see the celebrations taking place over the death of Osama bin Laden, I know tomorrow (if not already) that on both sides of the aisle, the battle for who deserves credit for his death will brew mightily. President Obama mentioned Bush in his speech. Bush said he congratulated Obama. That should be it, but we already see people outside the White House carrying Bush/Cheney signs. Maybe some have Obama signs but I don’t see them. It’s not about that! Both parties could have a president in power and this still could have happened. Let’s give Obama credit for carrying out on the promise made by the American government as we would if McCain was president. Let’s focus on the feeling we have right now and figure out how we can manifest it in our daily lives, especially as we move towards the next election. Congratulations America.
