Oprah Winfrey has revealed that she is only now learning how to swim.

In an email newsletter sent to fans this week, the OWN cable channel CEO and former talkshow host said that she began lessons last week and is finding the process to be enlightening.

Winfrey wrote: "Over a year ago, I pulled a picture from O mag of a woman gliding through water. It was such a striking image of freedom and possibility I put it on my vision board (which I've still not completed).

"Today, when I finished my swimming lesson, I passed the vision board lying on the table where it's been since 2009. I had an aha moment. I had just become that woman, gliding through the water!"

Winfrey went on to say that learning to swim has also offered greater meaning to her life, adding: "This I've known forever is the great metaphor of life. Move with the flow. Don't fight the current. Resist nothing. Let life carry you. Don't try to carry it. Sometimes we just have to be reminded. A swim lesson did it for me."

Winfrey was recently confirmed to be teaching a life lessons course to girls at her South African school this fall.
