The new law specifically states that there is no deduction for: --Any activity generally considered to be entertainment, amusement, or recreation --Membership dues to any club organization for recreation or social purpose --A facility, or portion thereof, used in connection with the above items
Deductions for a person's individual meals can still deducted 50% for food and beverage associated with running their businesses.
Consulting with your tax advisor is always recommended!
"Questa statua, che campeggia al CERN, rappresenta Shiva Nataraja, ossia Shiva, il re della danza. È un dono fatto dal governo indiano al CERN ed ha un significato molto preciso!
Nella tradizione indiana infatti, Shiva è uno degli dei più antichi, e quando rappresentato danzante, mette in luce il ciclo di nascita e distruzione dell’universo che si ripete all’infinito (ottimo per il luogo nel quale in assoluto si studia l’inizio e la fine del mondo). Ma Shiva danzante rappresenta anche quella impalpabile vibrazione ed energia che permea l’intero creato, quella radice comune che accomuna tutti gli esseri viventi.
Non ho potuto non pensare che quando i @sammyrunsbrenta si allenano, si crea proprio questo: non importa chi corre, perché le gambe e i piedi di tutti sono di tutti! Così come le difficoltà! Così come le risate! Così come l’amicizia!
Dall’India, al CERN al Brenta...e chi ci ferma più?" @sammybasso
I may or may not be a slight veggie addict... 🤷🏽♀️🥦🍠 Cooking up some butternut squash and broccoli to get me through the rest of this week. Sometimes I like to meal prep everything on Sundays, but sometimes I like to save it for a mid-week mindless study break. What about you? When’s your go-to meal prep time? 🌈
This is actually the color scheme of my guitar. And I think it suits this new song well because of it. I'm not going to post lyrics for this song though. The message is kinda scattered so any part of it out of context might ruin what the song is trying to say. 😄🎸🎼🎹 New #songsaboutgirls series entry out Friday!

This time last year ❤🏝
If there's one thing I've learnt since the twinnies came along it's the importance of 'us time'. Remembering that we are more than just 'Mummy & Daddy' and in the midst of the chaos, crying (us&them🤦♀️) and sheer exhaustion making a conscious effort not to take it out on each other 🙈 .
This time last year we were in the thick of 24/7 unsettled, non sleeping babies & to be honest I think at times I almost resented the fact that Keith got to do normal things like play squash, go to football etc when I never left the house. Dont get me wrong I didn't hold it against him, if anything it made me cross at me 🤷♀️ If anything I would say I admire him for keeping going when he was running on empty 🙌
I was the opposite. I became a total recluse. I gave up pilates, didnt bother trying to socialise with friends unless they came to mine, and if I went out for an hour on my own (normally because Keith would force me out) I felt anxious about whether the girls were 'kicking off'. It was hard but to be honest I think I made it worse for myself. Mum guilt had me thinking I had to always be at home. As much as Keith encouraged me to do things..I felt an emotional ball & chain was stopping me. I'm so glad he pushed me to take a breather here & there even if it was just a scoot to Tesco because unless he was with us I barely ever left the house on my own with the girls.
Whisking me off to Portugal just us was his best idea ever I think it was the first time I actually allowed myself to relax. I knew the girls were being spoilt and it was so nice to just do couple things ❤ I know some will read this & think I'm being over dramatic but if there are any mummys out there in the thick of it with young kiddies. Hang in there it gets easier & so very rewarding. One thing I wish I could go back & say to myself is..take a little time for you 💕 #youcantpourfromanemptycup#lessonlearntthehardway#thedaysarelongbuttheyearsareshort#wednesdaywisdom

GIVE skills are guidelines for interpersonal effectiveness. These skills are used to build or maintain relationships.
In group, we like to give 2 similes to help clients understand what relationships are like.
1. Relationships are like an apartment, the relationship needs maintenance.
2. Relationships are like a garden, because they need nurturing (water, sunlight, pruning, etc.) The key in GIVE is the V. Validation plays a huge role in building and maintaining relationships. Validation does not equal agreement. You can still disagree and still see their point of view (POV) and their emotions. Validation is showing them that some part of their experience is VALID.
What makes this a skill is it is hard to do when there are emotions rising within the relationship. Remember to express anger directly with words and do not use manipulative statements. Stay in the discussion even if it gets painful and remember to exit gracefully.
Do you have a relationship that needs work? #dbt#dbtskills#dbttherapy
