Oprah Talks Aging, Being Comfortable In The Skin She’s In


Oprah’s June O Mag’s June issue features a very glamorous Oprah.

The issue theme is ‘Age Brilliantly’ and is all about lightening up on the subject of getting older because, as you’ll see in the issue, there are delights to be found in every decade.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

Oprah on being comfortable in the skin she’s in:
“One day I literally woke up and thought ‘My god, these knees have been with me for 60 years. Wow! I’ve had these elbows for 60 years. My heart has been beating for 60 years. The feet I stand on have carried me for 60 years.’ And when you think about it that way, you can be nothing but grateful.”

On getting older:
“Call me crazy, but I’ve never really understood our culture’s fear of getting older. The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey. Think about it: You get one chance to be 25…38…44…61…and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?”

On not looking back on the years that have passed:
“If you’re blessed to enough to grow older, there’s so much wisdom to be gained from celebrating the process with vibrancy and vigor and grace.”

O, The Oprah Magazine’s June issue hits newsstands on May 13th.
