Oprah: The Two Questions You Should Ask Yourself Each Day
We live in a state of constant change. Whether or not we're paying attention, the process is always happening. Even people who can't see it in themselves witness change daily in their children or in others around them.
Life is about recalibrating. About continually asking yourself: "What do I have to do to get where I need to be?" "How do I create the life I want?"
This fall I'm embarking on a whole tour, The Life You Want Weekend, to explore these very questions, but the short answer is this: We have to make ourselves over daily, consistently, in order to keep moving forward. We are not meant to stagnate.
If change is the one thing you can be sure of, the goal is to figure out how you can use that certainty to your advantage, to modify, transfigure, refashion, and transform your day-to-day being.
The best way I know for sure to stay in steady makeover mode is to take care of yourself. To feed yourself with love and loving thoughts. To eat food that's delicious to you and to your body. To engage in loving practices, like giving yourself the gift of stillness at least five minutes a day. To surround yourself with people who bring you light, and to banish all forms of negative energy.
Moving forward, you will see that the value you give yourself is the value the world reflects back to you. When you care about yourself enough to embrace change, you're on the path that will lead you home to happiness.
