Happy Friday!


It's Friday...thank goodness. We've survived the week. And here is a simple little quote & a photo above...need a smile for your morning? :) spread the love!

Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
- Oprah

Oh good old Oprah, so wise. It's true though. If we are continuously focusing on the things we don't have, the things we want, the things we can't's a swirl of negative thoughts. We're spending our energy and wasting our time thinking, praying and wishing for things we don't have, can't have, want, want, want. We're too busy focusing on what we DONT have, that we forget how fortunate we are to have what we do.

This brings me back to a little something I read by a company called Mat&Nat...I bought a nice bag from them once.. :)

The 100 Person Village
It talks about fitting the world’s population in a village of 100 that would be representative of the current population as a whole:
- 6 people would possess 59% of the world’s wealth and they would all be from the USA
- 80 would live in poverty
- 70 would be illiterate
- 50 would suffer from hunger and malnutrition
- 1 would be dying
- 1 would be born
- 1 would own a computer
- 1 would have a university degree

If you have a full fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are better off than 75% of the world’s population.

- Matt&Nat


I hope you wake up today feeling fortunate for everything you have.

Sending love and a hug.
