Oprah Show Ends
Yesterday, May 25, 2011, was Oprah’s last day on her tv show… Her words just sang out to me! The following is taken from my notes of her last day.
Yes, I grabbed my trust composition notebook and started recording what I heard. These are not her exact words, but what *I* heard Oprah say. I hope they strike your heart, as they did mine!
OPRAH's WORDS (via my notebook):Wendy here:
Every day, I stood here, exactly where I needed to be, I never missed a day in 25 years of the Oprah Show. This is what I was called to do.
Everyone has a calling… your job is to follow your calling. Your calling lights up your life!
Each one of you has your own platform, mine was this show. Yours is where you are – your family, your friends, co-workers, classmates – your stage, your sphere of influence. Every day, in Every way, let your life speak to others.
We all have our own powers, be it nurturing, forgiving, listening, healing – not everyone is paid for it either, but it’s still your power, your calling. Use your talents, your powers, every day to help those around you.
Honor my calling and carry your own calling, to share whatever you are supposed to do in life.
Nobody but you is responsible for your life. All life is energy – you, flowers, trees, rocks. Dr. Taylor (book author) says “Take responsibility for the energy you bring to me, to this space.” Use your life energies, don’t wait for someone else to complete your life, take hold of your calling, use it, you are worthy to be happy.
We often block blessings from God because we believe we aren’t smart enough (or whatever the case), we feel Unworthy.
30,000 people have appeared on my show and they all have one thing in common – they all wanted validation. People have the same desire: Do you see me? Do you hear me? Does what I say mean anything to you?
OPEN your mind, OPEN your heart – Validate people in your life. Tell them you see them, Tell them you hear them, Tell them they matter to you.
Finally, GOD. I’ve felt the presence of God my whole life.
Let it in closer than your breath.. Be Still and Know It. With every move and every decision – wait and listen for guidance, he is greater than my meager mind.
GOD is LOVE, GOD is LIFE, Always speaking to you, in whispers, very subtle…
What are God's whispers in your life?
Will you hear him?
Will you listen to what he says?
I hope you will find your calling in retirement. I really do. We aren’t meant to retire to Couch Potato status, we should live a vibrant, active, loving life!
I challenge you to do just that…p.s. I think This website is MY calling!
Let me help you, in some small way, find your retirement purpose...
