Turn your wounds into wisdom
"Turn your wounds into wisdom."
A quote from Oprah Winfrey. Oprah Gail Winfrey (born January 29, 1954) is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer and philanthropist.
She is best known for her talk show ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’, which was the highest-rated programme of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011.
Dubbed the "Queen of All Media", she has been ranked the richest African-American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history and is currently North America's first and only multi-billionaire black person.
Several assessments regard her as the most influential woman in the world. In 2013, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Former President Barack Obama and honorary doctorate degrees from Duke and Harvard.
She is an incredibly humble person and has written many amazing quotes and inspirational pieces along with trying to support many people on their journeys of growth and self-development and discovery.
Today's quote is about ownership and development. It's about learning from something negative. Turning it into an experience to be gained from rather than continually impacted negatively by.
When I turn my hurt into wisdom then I accept it. I no longer allow it to pull me back into the past. Into a dark place that allows the wound to fester, get worse or never heal.
It doesn't mean I am OK with it necessarily or that I can completely forget what happened, but it can't harm me anymore or impact my choices and decisions negatively.
Even more than that; I change my mindset to move forward from it; to learn from it and to grow.
I can then make more informed and considered choices and decisions; without them being emotionally driven. I am then in a space and place where I can help others too (how wonderful is that?!)
I allow my wounds to empower me rather than debilitate me.
Choosing to stand tall and confident rather than defeated and confused.
Blessings to you!
