Good Life!!

I have been obsessing over this song lately, I can't get enough of it. Not a lot of 'mainstream' songs these days, have positive messages, so I think that's why I love this song so much! Sometimes I think we all get in a rut where we're focusing too much on the things that aren't going 'our' way in life. Spending too much time focusing on the negative, when there are SO many things that we should be taking the time to just be thankful for! I have always been a 'glass half full' type person, but I'm not perfect, and sometimes need to remind myself that my life is pretty darn great. I am blessed beyond measure with a wonderful family, the best friends, a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food in my mouth (sometimes too much, ha). My family is not perfect, my life is not perfect, things don't always go my way, but I know that God is in control, and knows exactly what my family needs at just the right time. Instead of focusing on what you don't have today, think about all the things you DO have, it just might be the change you need to be happy! 



I love the lines in the song that says "Someone please tell me what there is to complain about?" and "When you're happy like a fool, let it take you over" Listening to my little girl singing 'B-I-N-G-O' is enough to make my whole day! How about you?
