A casual conversation between my style friends taught me the most important lesson of life! This lesson would be to live in my truth. No matter how brutal the truth is to always live in it.
That conversation stuck with me and made me accept the fact that I am no perfect! My truth is sometimes ugly but it makes a beautiful ending. My truth is also for others to be set free and live in their truth without shame!
Last night, Oprah Winfrey reminded me of those same words that left me full of zest! Oprah’s speech left women and young girls around the world inspired. She shared a story that how at a young age she watched Sidney Poitier become the first African American man to receive the Cecil B. de Mille award. Years later that same little girl is the First African American woman to receive the same award. Many other parts of her speech left the room standing on their feet as she spoke of the future for women!
However, the most important part of her speech was “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we have.”
