    I love the one from Oprah! “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” What you focus on will magnify. If you focus on the abundance and bounty you will attract more of that. Thanks for the beautiful quotes!
