Oprah Inspires Us, Yet Again

As a self-made billionaire, Oprah has inspired us here at DailyMulligan so much we can’t help but share more insight she professed when her latest TV show, Love Is ____, premiered on OWN the other night.

On the topic of mental health, suicide, and the concept of death, Oprah did what she does best and made it into a positive learning opportunity for all of us to grow from. In an interview she said the following:

“Every death, not just Anthony Bourdain, not just Kate Spade, not just people that who are famous and names that we know… every death is here to teach us how to live better. Every death is here to remind us of our own life and the value of it. So what will come of these deaths in sequence like this, the suicides, is a more open desire to talk about it. There are lots and lots of people who have not been forthcoming because they are ashamed still of talking about mental illness in their family and mental illness in people around them, but it is serious and it is real.”

Wouldn’t it make sense to take all of these tragedies and use them as reminders of the value of a life? We should honor those we have lost by continuing to live our own lives and pushing forward, even through the toughest days.

And lastly, we need to spark a discussion. Oprah was (and still is) one of the best talkshow hosts in the history of television. If anyone can make people talk, and more importantly, make people listen, it’s her.
