Oprah Winfrey: Age is just number


While getting older is a sensitive topic for many, Oprah Winfrey is a perfect example of a woman who embraces her age with confidence and is looking forward to the next chapter in her life.

The talk show host, who turned sixty in January, is on the cover of her O Magazine and she says that age is just a number.

“One day I literally woke up and thought ‘My god, these knees have been with me for 60 years. Wow! I’ve had these elbows for 60 years. My heart has been beating for 60 years. The feet I stand on have carried me for 60 years.’ And when you think about it that way, you can be nothing but grateful,” she explains.


Oprah dedicated the June issue to her philosophy on “aging brilliantly,” and “celebrating the process with vibrancy and vigor and grace.”

Speaking about the common fear of getting older, the talk show queen says: “Call me crazy, but I’ve never really understood our culture’s fear of getting older.

“The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey. Think about it: You get one chance to be 25, 38, 44, 61 and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?”
