oprah's life class: ego


I know this blog has seemed a little impersonal this week - but there hasn't been too much going on besides work and going to the gym. I have become even more obsessed with Oprah this week though. Please tell me that you're watching her new show Oprah's Lifeclass. This show has made me look at myself in a way that I never have before and I've been looking at life so differently...maybe that's why this week has been so pleasantly uneventful. My favorite episode so far as been the one about ego. Through watching that show I realized that a lot of things in my life that made me unhappy were brought on by my ego, especially the thing that seems to bother me the most - not having the career that I want. I am not an egotistical person - but we all have an ego and tend to define ourselves with things outside ourselves - our jobs, our cars, titles, etc. Watching this episode made me realize, that I am not "less than" because I don't have the career or paycheck that I want. I am enough. What I do for a living has nothing to do with who I am. It may seem kind of silly, but that was a big moment for me. That was where my personal ego, came into play. For you, it may be something else. For Oprah, it was her weight.

Have you been watching Life Class? Which lesson most resonated with you so far?
