|Kyle McMahon and Oprah, Oprah's Lifeclass|
by Kyle McMahon
Since before I was born Oprah was on the TV. My mom always had the Oprah Show on, so I had literally grown up watching her. Over the years, I found myself listening more intently with the wisdom she shared with the world. Living your best life. Nourishing your spirit. Listening for the moments. It began to become a part of my identity. I picked up the books and did the worksheets. I began waiting for the next episode to help continue to enrich my life in the way that had become so nourishing to my soul.
She had become a part of my daily life. When the Oprah show ended, fittingly, I sat with my Mom and we turned on the TV and watched the finale. It was a powerful moment, but a sad one. I felt that I would be losing something I had grown up with. OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network had been announced and had launched, but I wondered if it would be the same. I wondered if I would get the same things from OWN that I got from the Oprah Show. Oh, how unfounded those thoughts were.
