“What I know for sure is speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”  There you have it Queen Oprah has spoken and I for one have listened. I wasn’t able to watch this glorious speech live, because of the whole-time difference thing. However, one of the first things I did yesterday was read the speech and then I watched her deliver her sermon. As some of Hollywood’s elite said, “We went to church!” It was exactly what I needed to see and hear as I left the holidays and placed my two feet firmly in this new year: 2018!

Times up…Times up… Times up… 

Those words resonated with me in a way that was so unexpected. This post is not about sexual abuse or sexual predators, but rather a call to action. As this hellish process is entering its third, yes, the THIRD year with no end in sight. Of course, I am eager for this thing to reach its conclusion. However, now I am fully accepting that it will happen when it happens. I can’t rush the court to reach a decision any more than I could wish all the players in this Greek tragedy acted like fully functioning adults, but I digress…

Before I was waiting for someone… anyone (my lawyer, the judge, the legal system) to do something for me. What was I thinking? I am sure you have heard that saying that if you want something done right… do it yourself!  Don’t get me wrong, a little help would be much appreciated but now I realize and embrace the fact that I will have to do most of the heavy lifting myself.

Mother Oprah’s words shone a light in all the darkest corners of my soul. Places that were hidden to everyone, including myself. The crazy thing is once you step into the light, there is no going back to the shadows. Then it hit me; I AM MY OWN RESCUE! No one can or should save me!  So, I am calling times up, on myself. I no longer have time for, not speaking my truth, living in fear, inauthenticity, not walking in my purpose, and self-doubt. Remember, the universe is always conspiring in our favour. With that said this year is going to be fucking MAGIC!

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, BEGIN IT. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” – Goethe

  1. Oprah’s words were inspirational to each of us as face our own personal battles. Time is up for so many injustices. As you said it may not always be sexual. Physical, psychological and gender abuse are suffered every day by women world wide. So happy that you took Oprah’s phenomal speach as a personal call to action.
