I have always liked Oprah but the only problem that I had with her show is that I did not see a lot of people that looked like me. I wanted to see more show's with AA's. However I have always respected Oprah and never really spent a lot of time dwelling on it. After watching the Celebration and seeing Rosie O'Donnell serenade Oprah with the other talk show host she created (Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and Nate Burkus) I wondered; Why didn’t she create any black talk show host? Well I got my answer yesterday.

On the season finale Oprah was speaking of the common thread that runs through us and is the reason for most of our pain and suffering which is not feeling worthy. Everyone wants to know, do you hear me, do you see me, does what Im saying mean anything to you. We all want to feel validated. Oprah realized this the most during an episode with Iyanla Vanzant earlier this year http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Oprah...standing-Video. She had not spoken to Iyanla in 12 yrs. Oprah and her team were working with Iyanla toward developing a new show for her but Iyanla decided to work with another producer to develop her show. On the show in 2011 Iyanla revealed to Oprah that she did not feel that Oprah liked her. Oprah found this hard to except and did not understand why Iyanla felt this way, she advised her I liked you very much, I liked you so much that I would sit and give you the stage. Iyanla pleaded with Oprah and expressed that she couldn’t see that at the time and that she felt that Oprah only wanted her for the work and not for her. She needed to know Oprah liked her and wanted Oprah to understand that. After Iyanla passionately expressed her feelings, Oprah then understood Iyanla’s pain. Iyanla did not feel worthy to except the blessings that were being given to her. She did not feel validated.

What I got from the show is that
often times we miss our blessing because we do not believe in ourselves and we look outward for validation instead of already knowing that we are deserving. We look for signs and feel that we have to work extra hard to receive anything good that may come our way. This is not the case. We all have the ability to receive anything that we need want and desire however our infinite mind and frame of thinking limit us. We must now start to see the power that we have within us and go after our dreams and except the blessing that come our way. Do not second guess them or dismiss them.

I thought that was a very powerful message. It made me question... Do I not feel worthy to except the blessings that are already mine? Is this why I am hesitant to seek the financial freedom that I know awaits me. I believe that I know I am worthy however my actions show that I am living out of fear and not complete faith. I know that I am capable of achieving anything that I put my mind to. I have proven this to myself time and time again. I believe that it is now time for me to take one of the biggest leaps of faith that I have ever taken. The question is, am I brave enough to do it? I think so....

    You are brave enough to take the next step and that is all you need to do. Don't try to look too far out and know that focusing on just 1 step is enough.

    You are worthy, you are brave enough and you can do it.

    Thank you FaithVA. I believe I am also. I am taking the necessary steps to accomplish my goals and release any hesitation :-)

    This can be difficult at times but I am a go getter as well as a perfectionist so I am determined to have things work in my favor.
