I thought that this was an excellent suggestion to help someone like me who at times lack inspiration. I don’t read many magazines but do enjoy Oprah because of the useful and insightful tips that is available. It’s not all about the drama. Thank you for this great tip. Always enjoy reading your great ideas.
