Let’s be honest. It’s Oprah’s world–we just live in it!
Today, OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, launches, and I’m excited to announce that I’ve been chosen as a Conversation Leader with the She Speaks / Oprah Winfrey Network OWN the New Year Program. (Official disclosure: I received this opportunity as a Conversation Leader at SheSpeaks.com.)
Here’s a little peek at some of the new shows you can expect in the coming year:
Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes, giving an unprecedented look at what really goes on at The Oprah Winfrey Show (I want to see the doubtlessly crazy prep for her “My Favorite Things” show!)
Miracle Detectives, a real-life X-Files, where the detective duo of a skeptic and a believer examine unexplained events around the world
Finding Sarah, Sarah, Duchess of York’s reality show following her as she tries to get her life on track after last year’s “cash for access” scandal
Oprah Presents: Master Class, interviewing stars like Jay-Z, Diane Sawyer, Simon Cowell and Condoleezza Rice
Every December 31st, I carve out a little Jolie time to reflect on the year–writing down accomplishments, thinking back on both rewards and disappointments, examining how (and if) I could have changed things, and then harnessing that purpose and resolve while writing a list of goals for the new year. My mission statement for 2011? Here’s what I wrote as it currently sits in a word document in my “Personal” folder:
“My intention for 2011 is to write, to work harder, to create, and to own my power!”
I didn’t even mean to use the word “own”, but as I was writing this OWN post and then looking back at my goals document, I realized I had and that it was a nice little tie-in!
So, now it’s your turn. Feel free to just think about it and keep it to yourself, if you prefer, but I’d love to hear from you in the comments as I’m genuinely curious:
How will you own 2011?
Hugs, and here’s to a healthy year full of love, laughter, abundance and beauty!
