Did you catch Oprah’s final show? Ohman, so beautiful, so wise – I can’t think of a better bookend to her success, please, give yourself a gift & read the transcript : I’ve talked to nearly 30,000 people on this show, and all 30,000 had one thing in common: They all wanted validation. If I could reach through this television and sit on your sofa or sit on a stool in your kitchen right now, I would tell you that every single person you will ever meet shares that common desire. They want to know: ‘Do you see me? Do you hear me? Does what I say mean anything to you?’ Understanding that one principle, that everybody wants to be heard, has allowed me to hold the microphone for you all these years with the least amount of judgment.

Just for today… How would your life be if just for today, you began to let down your guards and allow love to penetrate your heart?

The 30 Day Facebook/LoveBook Challenge : starting at the beginning of June, I will be taking the challenge of updating my Facebook status with a positive, true and encouraging comment about somebody else who I know.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them; disagree with them; glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. – Apple Inc.

Happy weekend! See you Monday!!
