Oprah Winfrey finds swimming to be the great metaphor of life


Oprah“Started out the week taking swimming lessons,” Winfrey said in an email Tuesday night. “Moving beyond my amateur doggy paddle. Learning the breast stroke today”. Admitting that for years she had been afraid of the water, she’s finally learned to go with the flow.

“This I’ve known forever is the great metaphor of life,” the lady who hates surprises emailed. “Move with the flow. Don’t fight the current. Resist nothing. Let life carry you. Don’t try to carry it. Sometimes we just have to be reminded. A swim lesson did it for me.”
