[Event Recap] Oprah’s “The Life You Want Weekend” in Miami, FL

“With the rising of the sun, you ask, What will I make of this NEW day?”- Oprah

I can honestly say that I had one of the best weekends of 2014 at Oprah’s “The Life You Want” Tour here in Miami, FL.  I was overly excited to see Oprah and all of her trailblazer friends in “real life”. The entire weekend’s experience was life changing not only for myself, but it was life changing for my friends who shared it with me.

We kicked off this powerful weekend at the “Power Meet-Up” of influential women that was hosted by COVERGIRL, Oil of Olay, Orgullosa and Publix. One of my favorite TV Hosts, Chef Carla Hall, led a panel discussion along with Celebrity Fashion Stylist Irma Martinez and Singer Jessi Leon about women exploring the topic of living our best life and these awesome ladies shared their history and words of encouragement.

In addition to Oprah giving us life with her “AHA” moments, she also brought along her trailblazers that had us jotting down quote after quote after quote! Deepak Chopra, Rob Bell, Mark Nepo, Iyanla Vanzant and Elizabeth Gilbert graced the stage with their life experiences and lessons for us to use in our daily living. In between the teachings we enjoyed breaks where we were able to reflect with our friends, network and connect with new friends, grab some lunch and even a Soul Cycle session that got us pumped for more lessons.

Overall, Oprah’s Weekend was not only about seeing Oprah and the trailblazers for the first time ever, but it was about starting a fresh journey to living the life I want!
