By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oprah Winfrey’s twenty-five-year run in syndicated television officially draws to a close today, and the media maven’s final guest may surprise you.

It’s herself.

After a blowout, two-part, all-star finale from Chicago’s United Center, Winfrey taped her final episode alone on stage in her familiar studio, turning to the camera and speaking directly to her loyal audience to share the lessons she says she has learned over the past 25 years, PEOPLE reports.

“This is my love letter to you,” Winfrey said, showing some of her favorite clips from over the years and sharing important lessons.

“Each one of you has your own platform. You can help somebody, you can listen, you can forgive,” she said. “My greatest wish for all you … is that you carry whatever you are supposed to be doing and don’t waste any more time.”

“You are responsible for the energy you create for yourself, and the energy you bring to others. Don’t wait for somebody else to save you, to complete you, to fix you.”
