“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”

Oprah Winfrey

This is dedicated in honor of Louise Hay.

I paid attention when Oprah Winfrey let it be known her show, that brought her much fame, was coming to an end. I will confess at that time my viewing waned as my days became busier and Oprah was a constant.

Then when she announced that the clock was ticking and the end of the Oprah Show was on its way out my viewing interest was renewed. I mean what she chose to say, the points that matter to her, would reveal themselves in that last year. She earned the right to have a voice to anything she saw fit. I decided to sit up and take notes. I didn’t know my voice but I could admire and recognize a woman that did.

A woman that had brought us so much. Who after paying her dues is now doing it her way. Why wouldn’t I pay attention? She is an icon, she is a ground-breaker, a rule breaker, a voice.  I loved her online serious with Eckhart Tolle, I loved her connection with the young poet, Mattie Stepanek. Oprah was making a difference with these brilliant people, she was changing lives.

Was it a vicarious look into a woman that could do whatever she wanted or was I looking for something more?

As it turned out it was something more.

Among her many platforms was books, book clubs and reading. Okay, she onto something, god bless the girl! I remember her saying we all have a story write it, share it, let your story be told. Okay Oprah I did. It took me five years and a team but my story has been written.

Why did I do it? It could not have been the Oprah voice in my head, that would be bonkers. It was more like what she said resonated with me. Resonated with the time in my life and the journey I had been on. My friends wanted to hear more stories of my love life, my dating life. My friends wanted a vicarious peek into what I was experiencing.

I relate to all kinds of people with great curiosity I am grateful for that. I relate to Oprah; I relate to the girl who answers the phone at a hair solon. Why not? We are all people making choices on our journey. My story that I blame on, or give credit to Oprah, is no different than anyone else’s. It is a story a journey.

There are times in our lives when certain things just resonate. When we are able to absorb and take in information that will help us evolve, will help us heal, information that we are ready for. I am grateful for women such as Oprah, and the recently passed Louise Hay a woman that I hold in great esteem. If these women are in anyway my guideposts than I am a lucky woman.

Although I would like to say I am organized, focused and cookie-cutter, that simply would not be me. I am no different than any other woman in the world. I love to love, love hard, and, in the end, have learned to love myself above all else. So here I am, writing about the many men and the multiple purposes they have served in my life. Realizing that not one man on my roster had fulfilled every single one of my needs. Perhaps one man is not supposed to? I have compiled snippets of the men that have entered my world. In the end, they have shoved me towards my bathroom mirror, forcing me to take a better look at myself. Reflection is brilliant and the strongest guidepost into ourselves.

Working on the next book in the series “A House for Every Purpose, My Journey From Pillow to Pillow” revels a woman abandoning her home in search or her identity beyond men, motherhood, author.
