What I Know For Sure – On Outlook and Perseverance

May 24th, 2011 No Comments Tags: , , , , ,

I continue to pay my T & T special tribute to Oprah on this final week of her show using the mag theme “What I Know For Sure” in the context of trying to be the best you can be. Did you catch yesterday’s show?? How many tissues did you use?? Today’s theme is on your outlook and perseverance. These final shows of Oprah have highlighted the many unique and special guests of hers who help ground me in my everyday life. Those who go on, despite the odds.

I get inspired by people with a sunny disposition and diligent approach to everyday life and burst through barriers you would never dream they could. It makes me reflect and take stock of my own situation. Many of us don’t realize we have been granted so many opportunities and privileges just by existing in an era of time and in a country where you can surpass your hopes and dreams if you play your cards right. You can certainly “dream  the impossible dream” and make it come true.

Instead, some people groan and complain about their half empty cup when indeed there are people in this world whose cup is totally empty, yet they persevere with a smile and hope for a new day. Simply turn on the news and actually listen to other situations then kick yourself in the pants and move forward.

What I know for sure folks is that the world certainly IS our oyster. We just need to figure out how to get the darn thing open then the sky’s the limit. While you’re at it, don’t forget to reach out your hand to someone else.

How about that Beyonce on Monday’s show, huh?? I’ve been singing “Who Won the World – GIRLS!!” all day long. I’m glad I can’t get it out of my head! Golly, if I tried some  of her moves I think I’d dislodge a hip :-)
