It’s hard to believe, but Oprah Winfrey turns 60 years old today. “If you’re blessed enough to grow older, which is how I look at aging … there’s so much wisdom to be gained from people who are celebrating the process with vibrancy and vigor and grace,” she once wrote about getting older. “Every year should teach you something valuable; whether you get the lesson is up to you. Every year brings you closer to expressing your whole and healed self.
I celebrate that. Honor it. Hold it in reverence. And I’m grateful for every age I’m blessed to become.” A few days before her big day, the talk show queen celebrated by working out at SoulCycle, but her plans for her actual birthday aren’t clear. But there is one way for you to celebrate now. Brush up on your Oprah knowledge with these 60 fun facts about the former talk show host.
1. She’s selling her condo in Chicago and is moving to her California estate full-time.
