let it go

Antoni Porowski, COLUMNIST “WHAT’S COOKING?,” PAGE 136 Forgiveness is important to me because…it actually affects my well-being. Holding on to resentments ultimately hurts me more than the person I’m upset with. The most forgiving person I know is…my best friend, Ben. We have a system where we never end the day with unresolved issues. I choose to forgive and forget because…the bigger picture is more important: Love feels so much better than hate. Emily Bernard WRITER “A FAMILY AFFAIR,” PAGE 106 The most forgiving person I know is…my husband. I am constantly awed by his ability to leave the past in the past. I choose to forgive and forget because…I’ve learned there is no other way to live a healthy, happy life. To forgive is to choose to be connected to humanity. I am still…

Makeup lets you experiment and be whoever you want to be in that moment.—OPRAH When Lizzo’s anthem “Juice” filled the dressing room, the opening line—Mirror, mirror on the wall—was right on cue. There sat Oprah in robe and slippers, occasionally checking her reflection as her trusted glam squad, makeup artist Derrick Rutledge and hairstylist Nicole Mangrum, expertly did their thing. “At this point, they could get me ready blindfolded,” Oprah said with a laugh. Meanwhile, photographer Ruven Afanador was liking the way the glow of the mirror lights framed his subject, and when it came time to shoot, the set was ready with an illuminated vanity that similarly showed off Oprah’s dazzling look. We ask you: What better way to kick off our Fall Beauty O-wards than with a cover close-up…

when were you glad to be forgiven?

It’s been said that we hurt the ones we love the most, and this mother-daughter relationship was a case in point. It’s not that I didn’t love my mother. I was simply incapable of demonstrating that affection and hated myself for lacking the warmth and vulnerability to show her how much she meant to me. Instead, I voiced my irritation about her weaknesses, my frustration about her inability to get a handle on her weight, and my disgrace over her lack of style and poise. When she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and given six months to live, a frenzied sense of guilt welled up in me, and I wanted to make up for a lifetime’s worth of disrespect and insensitivity. As she suffered those long months,…

here we go!

FOR TWO YEARS I didn’t sleep well. Never a full night. No peace. Restlessness and heart palpitations were my steady companions at nightfall. This was back when I was 48 to 50. I went to see a cardiologist. Took medication. Wore a heart monitor for weeks. And then one day, walking through the offices of The Oprah Winfrey Show, I picked up a copy of The Wisdom of Menopause, Dr. Christiane Northrup’s book, and the pages fell open to the heading “Palpitations: Your Heart’s Wake-Up Call.” I took it as a sign. Contained in that book was the answer I’d been going doctor to doctor trying to figure out. Heart palpitations and sleeplessness were indications that The Change was coming. But no one, including my trusted doctors, had warned me, and…

the high five

Drawing Attention Consider this new book your personal docent: Great Women Artists is a wide-ranging collection of exceptional work by women. It spotlights more than 400 old masters, modernists, and other talents from the past 500 years—from the instantly recognizable (like Georgia O’Keeffe; that’s her Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1) to the unjustly unsung. Get the picture? Heart’s Content For 15 years, the New York Times’ Modern Love column has explored relationships of all stripes: romantic, platonic, familial, unrequited. On October 18, eight of those real stories hit the small screen—brought to life by a cast including Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, and John Slattery—in an eponymous new Amazon series. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll fall in you-know-what. Gettin’ Jiggly Wit It For Beadnose, Chunk, and the more than 2,000 other brown bears in Alaska’s Katmai…
