But the magazine mogul that I am, I thought checking out a couple of magazines might be a good idea. I didn’t have a lot of points, so I had to pick strategically. People magazine cost next to nothing in points, so I picked it.
That turned out to be a huge mistake. Caring what celebrities do is akin to me believing all the people on my Facebook feed who feel they must inform me how great of a time they’re having out to dinner, drinks, and on vacation. I don’t buy it, and I don’t buy that celebrities are any happier than me. However, are they really that much skinnier than me?
The bulk of my airline points went to Oprah, or her magazine, rather. I picked it because it’s Oprah’s, and I want to know more about Oprah. I haven’t always been a fan, but as I grew up I realized I like having examples of strong women to look up to, even if I disagree with them on some big issues. She’s also a smart business woman who is often candid with her struggles, as she has been recently with starting her own network. While I don’t necessarily relate to the magazine itself, I can relate with the struggle of starting something from scratch.
Oprah and I don’t have a lot in common, yet! I would like to get to a point where I single-handedly pick the president of the United States. But for now, all I have in common with Oprah is that we both started magazines; one is more successful than the other, but I don’t want to point out which…don’t want to embarrass her.
Oprah ends every issue with a “What I Know For Sure” article. This got me thinking, “What do I know for sure?” We all think we know a lot of things, but what do we know for sure? One of the joys of being in my 30s has been the things I’ve learned along the way. I’ve learned passions and stances not only change, but evolve. Knowing I’m an evolving mind, soul, and body makes me question what do I really know for sure. What will I claim to be true in 10, 20, 50 years?
The ultimate truth for me is there is nothing like Jesus’ love. He is and always will be my Lord.
