I received Oprah Winfrey’s new book, What I Know For Sure, for Christmas. I had picked it up atI didn’t want to keep reading it because I was taken with all of it immediately and wanted my own copy! As trite as it sounds, I found this book to be one of the most inspirational books I have ever read. While I am not a huge Oprah fan, I do respect all that she has done, and find her spirituality to be quite on target with my own beliefs. I found myself wanting to mark every page for something written on it, and finally realized that I just couldn’t do that. I had to accept that I found the whole book inspirational.
The book is a compilation of her monthly columns in the Oprah magazine. So each essay is quite short, but distinct. It is divided into sections: Joy, Resilience, Connection, Gratitude, Possibility, Awe, Clarity and Power.
The book also has a small bookmark ribbon attached! Bonus."You have the choice this very moment-the only moment you have for certain. I hope you aren't so wrapped up in nonessential stuff that you forget to really enjoy yourself-because this moment is about to be over. I hope you'll look back and remember today as the day you decided to make every one count, to relish each hour as if there would never be another."
