Winfrey reflects on her legendary past in the January 2014 issue of O magazine where she rocks a gorgeous gold gown for the Ruven Afanador-shot spread.
The 59 year-old talk show host opens up about her experiences over the years and chats about how she stays positive.
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! 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.
Oprah looks amazing to hitting that 60 year mark! Is 60 the new 40?

Oprah on overcoming the adversities in her life:
Never shutting my heart down.
Even in my darkest moments ? through sexual abuse, a pregnancy at 14, lies and betrayals ? I remained faithful, hopeful, and open to seeing the best in people, regardless of whether they were showing me their worst.
I stayed open to believing that no matter how hard the climb, there is always a way to let in a sliver of light to illuminate the path forward.
Welp… they say ‘Black don’t crack’ and Oprah is looking dayum good as she enters her big Six-Oh!
