Did you see it?

Oprah Winfrey received the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award at the Golden Globes on January 7, 2018, and brought new meaning to delivering a speech that is relevant, powerful, and inspiring in a very challenging time.

Please watch, enjoy, and savor the ability she has to move an audience.

This may launch her presidential campaign (you never know!).

Seth Meyers did a fantastic job as Host, opening with the line, “Welcome Ladies and remaining Gentlemen”.  Brilliant handling of a very tough topic.

Although I don’t like awards shows in general due to the politics and slamming of sitting officials, I do feel this year’s was needed and different in the midst of the #MeToo movement, especially since Hollywood has been in the middle of so much of this for so long.  As I come from that world of entertainment, I know the power others can exert over us and it must stop.

If you have been harmed, hurt, or humiliated, as have so many, I hope you know there are many out there to support you, too.

I love that Oprah kept a grand promise, to herself, so many years ago, to keep going, to share her gifts, to bless the world.

Honoring all women today and always, and grateful for the men who stand by me supporting them.

    The true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of other’s above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of leadership privilege comes at the expense of self interest. Simon Sinek – Thx, Jason! Best, Cindi

      Love that quote, Cindi, and big fan of Sinek. I just watched the epic movie Gandhi the last week (it took that long!), and is what this quote is totally about. Thank you for reading and commenting.
