Oprah Winfrey is sharing her wisdom about aging now that she’s reached the milestone at of 60 years old. She revealed she has no qualms about getting older; in fact she embraces it.

The media mogul turned 60 on Jan. 29 and she celebrated with friends with a birthday celebration at SoulCycle in California.

“One day I literally woke up and thought ‘My god, these knees have been with me for 60 years. Wow! I’ve had these elbows for 60 years. My heart has been beating for 60 years. The feet I stand on have carried me for 60 years. And when you think about it that way, you can be nothing but grateful,” she said.

“Call me crazy, but I’ve never really understood our culture’s fear of getting older,” she continued, ShowBizSpy reports.

Winfrey also looked at it in a way that celebrates all ages and phases of life.

She explained, “The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey. Think about it: You get one chance to be 25, 38, 44, 61 and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?”

Earlier this week, the former queen of daytime television showed just how far she’s come in her career when she shared an audition tape from 1983.
