Each Friday, we are taking a look back over the week and bringing you the “Top 5 Moments” of OWN programming each week. There were plenty of moments to pick from….so much good stuff and we did our best!
“Oprah’s Next Chapter” with Gloria Steinem – Although Gloria’s personal story was amazing, the part of this show that resonated most with viewers was that the conversation was opened up and we were reminded of the difficult road so many women took to get to where we are today. Paths that greatly impacted the lives of brave women like Gloria Steinem. There is no one quite like Gloria, but we pray that there will be. All of us are Gloria, whether we are women or men. Equality is so much more than about doing what is fair…it is about respecting one another. Kudos to OWN for putting a spotlight on such an important woman in our history.
“Oprah’s Lifeclass”: The Tour Goes to Canada – All FIVE teachers on one stage…each taking us through 30 minutes of life changing lessons…but the real OWN moment was Oprah in Canada. For weeks since the announcement, Canadians have been flooding the social media scene with excitement and anticipation. Starting in the early hours before daylight, #OinTO participants lined the streets for their moment in Lifeclass. Ending into the night with the second taping and the sun going down, Oprah took in all the love from the 17,000 in attendance at the events from the day. Students were there because of one teacher…one woman…and one amazing team to bring the lessons to the world LIVE! With an amazing energy and great Canadian OWN and Oprah fans, Canada finally got their Oprah moment and now, they are already ready for the next time!
“Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s”- Trust is such an important part of our daily lives. Whether it is your childcare provider, an employee, a boss, or a loved one, we all need people in our lives that we know have our back and we can believe in. Without trust there is no peace of mind. This week “Sweetie Pie’s” reminded just how important trust can be with stolen items and young TJ’s care.
“Breakthrough with Tony Robbins” – It is easy to get stuck in disappointment about unfulfilled dreams. This week was a great example of the emotional quicksand which makes us resistant to change. Juaquin Hawkins’ path from basketball star to stroke survivor was a lesson to us all…a great example of how your job doesn’t define you or what you are to become. Life is so much bigger than that.
Super Soul Sunday’s Film, “Autism: The Musical” – Sometimes change can only occur when you step back and look at a situation from a different perspective. In this film, not only do we learn new innovative techniques to help children with autism, we are reminded that anything is possible. In a world of boxes and can’ts, this film sends a resounding “yes you can” message and OWN viewers heard it loud and clear.
