So listen. Oprah is awesome. People melt like buttah when it comes to her opinions, likes and dislikes. It's insane. I enjoyed The Oprah Winfrey Show as much as the next person. Here's how it works. Oprah's Lifeclass show comes on Monday through Friday on Own. She then has a live webcast with additional thoughts, comments and questions.
Lifeclass is the TRUTH.
I was hooked on episode #3, You Become What You Believe. When Jim Carrey said he would sit in his dream neighborhood and just dream...I almost lost it. I've been doing the same thing for nearly 3 years now. Just a few months ago, I went to the very development and snapped several pictures, just to keep me inspired. My short term goal is to live in the home that I grew up in in downtown Baltimore. Super spacious, urban, full of sentimental value. That image of that home is the first thing I see anytime I pick up my phone, 40 or 50 times a day. It's constantly on my mind, and that picture (and my vision board) pushes me to work harder to make those goals happen all the time. It's all about the law of attraction. I'll be re-watching that webcast tonight.
I tape all of the episodes, and catch up on the ones that I'm interested in. Last night, I watched the people that were "living a financial lie". Come on, son. You have 6 kids, spend $400 on Starbucks a month, get your hair and nails done faithfully--but none of your kids have health insurance?
That Starbucks part kicked my butt, though. I'm a chronic eater-outer. It's the dumbest thing in the world, because I absolutely love to cook! I even started a food blog, Funky Brown Foodie, to document the yummy foods that I make. I can't worry about new clothes and stuff like that. I'm trying to save up to move into that home. I need to pay off these student loans. I need to see the world. I want to be my own boss.
