African American Quotes: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey Time QuoteOne of the things my husband is fond of saying is, “You can’t afford my free time.”  My husband used to say this when people asked him how much it’d cost them for him to fix their stuff during his off time. It reminds me of a quote by Oprah Winfrey:

“All the money in the world doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t have time to enjoy it.”
~Oprah Winfrey

There’s a a balance. Yes, money can bring comfort, yet how comfortable are we if we’re working so hard we can’t enjoy the comforts in life?

Today I ask you, what are you doing to find balance in your life, so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor?
