Hello friends! It's another frigid day in Minnesota, but the sun is shining and I'm chair-dancing (i.e., move my hips and tap my feet and bob my head but not enough so anyone in my office notices) to this currently. The track, Ghost, is today's favorite. Life is good, man.
Day 21 not smoking. Fuck yes. I am doing it, and I am really proud of myself. I treated myself to a massage last week and it was AMAZING. I plan to spoil myself rotten each week if I stay smoke free.
I've also been gluten free for about a month now. I have not had one stomach ache since I started and it's been a lot easier than I thought it would be. I also am feeling a lot better in terms of my mood. I am leaning toward grain free - but still eating rice, quinoa, and lots of legumes. C has been making us really delicious dinners - lucky for me she is trying to make this whole process as delicious as possible.
Friday was my FIRST Friday off. I am now only working four days per week at my full-time job, so I can focus more on Tandem Vintage. I am also still freelancing for a non-profit doing some writing and editing, so my plate is still full, but I feel like a HUGE weight has been lifted because I have a WHOLE day to now work at the shops, get organized, SHOP, tag, and hopefully start having time to just relax!
Friday we moved a couple more racks into Find Furnish and spent the day tagging and organizing our space. It's a work in progress, but we are excited to make it ours. We want to have a big party to celebrate our new home. We are working on that. I wish you could all come! :)
This is what I want to build for the space!
I also purchased this book last week. You can see where my head's at! My mom is not feeling this plan - "what about when you have kids?" "health insurance?" "retirement?" "what if, what if, what if..."
And then I think, but WHAT IF I was living the life of my dreams...Would love to hear your thoughts if you currently are self-employed or ever think about making that leap.
Big hugs and love!
