Who wore black today and watched The 75th annual Golden Globe Awards? Can we just talk about the Times Up initiative? What a beautiful sea of black that graced the red carpet in support of the movement highlighting harassment in the workplace and in protest to gender inequality. I loved how the women were showing each other so much love and building each other up. I feel like this is the new way that women will treat each other moving forward.
Oprah Winfrey was honored tonight and presented with the Cecil B. DeMille Award and I think it’s safe to say we were all moved by her acceptance speech. I love Oprah, and while I’ve always found her to be inspiring, tonight she reached a deeper part of my soul. Her words were empowering. One thing Oprah said was: “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” She delivered a message of hope. With everything going on in the world, we need hope now more than ever. While we cannot change things overnight, at least we are having the dialogue and moving in the right direction.
Also, Thank you Oprah for bringing to light, the story of Recy Taylor. Read more of her story here: Recy Taylor.
One of my goals for 2018 is to read more. Thanks for the reminder Oprah, that I need to check out your book club!
What are you all reading this year? Please leave me your suggestions!
Have an amazing week everyone!
