I just want to know exactly what stood out the most to you while you were viewing the interview tonight. For me it was how she described her relationship with her bestie Gail. Oprah said "She (Gail) is such a good listener." I personally have told myself to just shut up and listen to what other people are saying. Being a good listener is an art form and I know that I have not mastered it. However I am very particular about who I consider a friend and The best way to feel someone out is to just let them talk. Try to find out what their passions are and ask them some questions.
Have you ever met someone at a party and exchanged numbers and then suddenly they are different on the phone. What is up with that? I just don't get it. Can someone please explain it. I know that I am very easy to talk to and it may be that people are just using me to have the illusion that they are having a good time. Or is it that they are talking to me because no one else wants to talk to them. Actually that is exactly why I chatted them up, I do not like smug, cattiness or airs. I've been a have and a have not and then a sorta have:)!
Okay may Almighty God guide Oprah. I am from Chicago and I have never been to one of her shows at one time I was interested in going but not anymore. I have watched her shows rarely because I know what my purpose in life is and I no longer have this sense of "something just isn't right" feeling. I do not know why Oprah has to let everyone know of all the charity that she does i would have liked to ask her why she does not do it anoynomous. Maybe it is just the making of great daytime television.
Material things are not going to bring you any lasting happiness. At least not to me. Many people are depressed and they aren't sure why. We are all connected and we should care that children are going to bed hungry, that children are being abused or being killed. And that war is ravaging the homes of civilians who have never done any acts of terrorism. Here I am in America just like Oprah and we all need to do more to help one another for the sake of Almighty God. It could be a smile, a cough drop, a pat on the back, holding a door. many of us need to find our humanity to do good deeds and also to say thank you when someone does something for you. The sense of entitlement and being ungrateful has to stop.
On another note has anyone seen the show American Pickers? What is up with all this piling up of possessions. I cringed when I watch this show as well as Clean House. Can you believe all these people have all these things and they're not happy? I watch these shows to stay grounded and think before I bring another thing into my house. Pardon my rambling, thanks for being such a good listener, I mean reader. :)
