JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 287 :: running into oprah

16 Oct

I ran into Oprah at CVS today. Well, not really, not the REAL Oprah. Her face did jump out of the magazine rack at me.  And I was like, “Oh, hi! See you tomorrow!”  Wink. Wink.  Then I bought my toothpaste and tampons.


The reason I am going to Oprah’s event tomorrow is because right after my mastectomy I received a text message. It was from Kim. She asked me if I wanted to be her guest at Oprah’s Houston event. Even on intense pain killers and mind numbing medications at the time I instantly knew the answer was a wholehearted YES! In all caps!

So I have to admit, I am excited to participate in Oprah’s event tomorrow and hear what all the speakers have to share and say about peak performance in work and in life. I think it’s the perfect way to round out my peak performance year (thus far). And I have Kim to thank for bringing me along for the ride. For making this little dream come true.

And for that I want to say something. Thank You.

I am convinced that it’s never just one person who makes their peak performance dreams come true.  There is a long line of teachers, mentors, friends, doctors, scouts, lawyers, accountants, assistants, family, and miracle workers standing behind us.

Who knows what dream you made come true for someone else yesterday, today, tomorrow … right now.

All I know is that it takes a village. That’s how I have come through with flying colors after a year of three surgeries and shocking diagnoses. I had a long string of strong-willed, big-hearted, never give up on me people carrying me through the worst of it. They were by my side for the good, the bad and the utterly confusing.

And now I’m on the other side. So it’s time I give back.

Next up! A new series from me to you. I will be interviewing one of my “helpers” next week. If you would like to find out more, please click here

I will share more from Oprah in Houston tomorrow. Until then, you got this. Whatever it is that you have ahead of you. Because there is a long line of people rooting for you — and I am one of them.

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
