Flaunting her curves and booty on the cover of the June issue of O Magazine, the one and only Oprah Winfrey celebrates her milestone 60th birthday and how grateful she is for the opportunity because, as she so eloquently states, it only happens once.
Oprah opens up about aging gracefully in a society that views getting older with fear.
“Call me crazy, but I’ve never really understood our culture’s fear of getting older,” Winfrey tells the mag. “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?”
According to Oprah, aging is a blessing, not a curse.
“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 says.
