Maria Shriver on Writing Her Deeply Personal Book

CC | tv-pg
As an award-winning journalist, producer, author and former first lady of California, Maria Shriver is no stranger to the spotlight. Yet, she tells Oprah on Oprah's Super Soul Conversations, she was "used to also being somewhat invisible" in a crowd. "I don't give up much of myself," she says. "I speak on behalf of somebody. I urge someone to vote. I urge someone to cure Alzheimer's. But I don't say, 'I've struggled here. I have anxiety.'"

Here, Maria opens up about why she finally chose to write her latest book, I've Been Thinking...: Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life.
