Happy Thursday! How are you?
I’m nearing the end of two weeks eating entirely “clean”, meaning no gluten, no sugar, no dairy, no alcohol, no fun (just kidding, kind of). It’s not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I gotta tell ya – despite my best efforts to believe the contrary, sparkling water is a sad, sad substitute for a crisp, glass of white wine. (I miss you, sweet vino.)
Here’s a few things I’ve been distracting myself with this week:
This article on the nine things people don’t understand about entrepreneurs spoke to my self-starting heart. “They don’t simply want to gain a skill and then live a routine.” YES. That’s right! We don’t.

If you’re still in the beginning stages of your business, this list of quick tips is a must-read.

“We hold on to feelings of anger, sadness, happiness, regret. We hold on to things. We hold on to the idea of things. We hold on to dreams. We hold on to certain ideals. We hold on to people. And it’s not healthy. Holding on isn’t good for your mind and most importantly, it’s not good for your heart.” What are the things that are no longer serving you that you need to let go of?
Is there anything cuter than a dog and his adorable baby twin?
How do you do the things you don’t want to do? (Bookkeeping, washing the dishes, giving up wine for 30 days, to name a few.) You could meditate, be grateful, or just embrace the suck (my personal favorite) – or a combination of the ten great suggestions listed here.
