The life of the small-business owner is not all sunshine and roses. I know, I was shocked, too.
It helps to keep some no-fail smile-inducers on hand (it also helps to reserve the smile-inducers of an alcoholic variety for after business hours....). I found the site It Is Just You, Everything's Not Shit this week. It's a definite pick-me-up. Almost every day, Steve Stack posts about the things that he finds really cool, from Nice biscuits to Taiwanese Notebook Slogans. See? Smiles.
Another blog I read regularly is Zen Habits. It doesn't always make me smile (they talk about fitness sometimes!) But this essay on following your dreams is wonderful.
And, in my never-ending quest to find people as odd as I am, I've found Junk Creation, a fun little blog with lots of ideas for turning useless junk into something cool (including his thoughts on gravy, a junk creation of sorts).
Well, that's it for this week. If you have any links you'd like me to include, send me an email, and, if they even remotely fit the scope of this blog, I'll include them in a future Lazy Sunday Links!
