“I approach this milestone, the landmark of 60, with humility, supreme thanksgiving, and joy.”

Oprah Winfrey, who is well known for her inspirational words, turned 60 just yesterday.

The much-loved iconic figure has hit a huge personal milestone, but rather than going all out, she decided to have a ‘quiet dinner’.

Prior to hitting the big 6-0, the talk-show host shared some of her life experiences with the world.

“I’m turning 60. I’m alive. Healthy. Strong. I’m turning 60, and – please don’t take offense – I no longer have to be concerned about what anyone thinks of me! (You know, the old Am I doing it right? Am I saying it right? Am I being what or who I’m ‘supposed’ to be?) I’m turning 60, and I’ve earned the right to be just as I am. I’m more secure in being myself than I’ve ever been.”

She later mentioned that her biggest achievement in life was the ability to remain humble, even in the toughest situations – aww how inspiring!

We hope she a lovely day and we’re wishing her many more years to come.
