Amid everyday stresses, Winfrey learned to savor the peak experiences that make life worth living, which she calls ‘ahhh’ moments. Her first principle of joy is that, whether working or playing, people should delight in what they do and live in the moment. To illustrate this, Winfrey relates how terrified she was when singer, Tina Turner, invited her to be a backup dancer for a show. She feared embarrassing herself, yet went up on the stage and found joy in dancing.  Second, Winfrey has come to understand, despite her lifelong weight problems, food still should be a source of joy, as when she and her friends shared a memorable dinner at a trattoria in Rome. People who love chocolate, as she does, need not ban it from their lives, but instead eat small amounts and savor every moment of it.  Finally, Winfrey learned to delight in her friends, such as her beloved, best friend, Gayle King, and her diet guru, Bob Greene. King, whom Winfrey met in 1976, both keeps her grounded and cheers her on. Greene guides her on the path of eating foods that are right for both her body and her spirit…
