“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 Winfrey

I love a good quote from Oprah, she always makes so much sense and doesn't dance around the truth or reality. I remember years ago when her show was shown on Channel 4 (remember that?), I was stuck in a bad relationship, making excuse for why I wouldn't or couldn't leave and I was at home watching her show on toxic relationships and self love while I ironed my boyfriend clothes and thought to myself "What the hell are you doing here?!" Cue me in tears and nodding my head along to the testaments of women who had also lost their way in a less that happy relationship. I realised then with the power of Oprah that my self worth was not being honoured by what was happening around me, although it took me another year to finally leave...

Other people's words can be so powerful sometimes, they can strike to the heart of the matter when you can't seem to stop bumbling along with something. This quote does just that for me, I'm big fan of practicing grattitude, reflecting on what is happening for me in the here and now giving it some merit but sometimes like many things in life I forget to honour the good things going on for me in life each day, being reminded by someone else words give me that little kick up the bum to see the good in each moment when I get caught up in the should ofs and could ofs and the what ifs.

What are you grateful for today?
