The interview covers everything from the now debunked rumour of an Oprah 2020 presidential run to empowering women and manifesting goals. Oprah, explores the moments in her career that made her career and how she has worked through low moments and identifying with the impact of the #TimesUp movement at the wake of Hollywood’s internal cleanse.

“It has seared into the consciouness a level of awareness that was not there before. That’s the most important thing to me. When Reese Witherspoon can tell her story at the same time as a farm worker in Iowa or a factory worker in Alabama, it says to a person, ‘Oh well, I’ve been putting up with that asshole supervisor for all these years. Maybe it’s time for me to do something to.’ You can see that you’re not alone. We don’t have to turn our heads to pretend something isn’t happening in order to keep going.”

Oprah who is called on for many things has the expected busy workload of a Hollywood media mogul. Even she can become overwhelmed by the exhausting news cycle and ability to constantly refresh for more on social media. Logging off is the first step Oprah takes in staying on top of it all.

“I have taken a step back and a couple notches down. I don’t get up and turn on the TV first thing in the morning. I spend quiet time. I try to center myself, and I’m conscious of what I allow in because there’s so much all day long. I have the app that has all the news stories, so I scroll through the 5 Things You Need To Know Today and then choose which of those things I want to explore more.  I try not to lean into the hysteria.

Oprah continues the lighthearted yet heavy hitting interview discussing food, life and more. She even credits Ava DuVernay, citing her as inspiration. When asked “Who’s your Oprah?” she responds with DuVernay and Maya Angelou.

“Ava [Duvernay] is my new one. She’s just burning up; she’s a light! I’m inspired by her. And I feel a real connection, still, to Maya.  Sometimes I can just hear her in my presence.”

Oprah’s full interview is full of inspring and heartfelt words. Read the full interview here.

    These days of austerity along with relative anxiety about running into debt, most people balk contrary to the idea of utilizing a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or maybe pay for a holiday, preferring, instead to rely on the particular tried as well as trusted procedure for making repayment – raw cash. However, in case you have the cash on hand to make the purchase entirely, then, paradoxically, this is the best time for you to use the card for several good reasons.

    I believe that avoiding highly processed foods is a first step to help lose weight. They may taste fine, but processed foods have very little nutritional value, making you consume more to have enough power to get over the day. When you are constantly taking in these foods, switching to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will assist you to have more strength while taking in less. Good blog post.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
