How Great Thou Part

I miss Oprah.

The Golden Globes reminded us exactly why daily television just isn’t the same without her.

Oprah is what I refer to as a ‘Missionary of Life.’

She is devoted to helping others, lifting them up and carrying forward profound messages.

Few possess the raw, authentic and purposeful sincerity to achieve such great things yet continue to relate to all mankind in the same fashion.

3 Reasons We Miss Oprah

Hope

Oprah offers us hope.

She embraces the human condition.

The world and all of us who inhabit it are far from perfect but those exquisite imperfections are exactly what gives us meaning. We will stumble, we will fall, we will fear and we will ultimately triumph and find beauty in what once was ugly.

Inspiration

Oprah offers us inspiration.

She tells the stories people are afraid to talk about. Consequently, they are absent from the superficial and heavy on the substance and spirituality. They are complex, intriguing, and thought provoking.

They unite us in tears, laughter, awe or outrage.

 

Sisterhood

Oprah is our sister.

She shares with us, roots for us, connects us, fights for us, and is loyal to us. Because of this, we feel less alone and more understood. We feel a part of something bigger like someone not only has our back but is okay with us all being different but still family.

 

This is Oprah.

The ‘how’ and ‘why’ no one else can replicate her.

There are a lot of celebrities, journalists, and leaders who are in the business of telling stories.

But few who pass the popcorn and scoot over to make room for us.

Oprah genuinely wants to watch this thing called life together.

In the hopes, we too will become inspirational and spiritual converts by lifting ourselves and others up.

I miss Oprah.

At least we still have Super Soul Sunday.
