Boost your blue mood with some nice conversation today. Seek out a friend who's always good for a laugh and try to book them for lunch or dinner. Relaxing with one of your favorite people over some delicious food is just about the best way to make yourself feel happier and more content. Nothing heavy should go on today -- so avoid making big decisions, signing any paperwork or dealing with any legal documents. Keep the tone of your day easy and breezy.
Let go of some power today -- you do not have to be the one in charge in order to shape the way things evolve. Focusing on who is sitting behind the steering wheel is a huge waste of your time. What you should be focusing on is where the entire vehicle is headed! Give another person the platform to push their agenda, and you will quickly see that they were thinking about things in a more effective way. You aren't wrong. You're just learning that you're not right all of the time.
Watch where you step this morning, because if you maneuver yourself into the middle of a heated discussion, you might get burned! The arguments between these people are going to be confusing for you -- they don't seem to be trying very hard to come to an agreement. That's probably because there's something about the drama and the friction that they love, and they don't want to stop. Your peacemaking skills are strong, but they are wasted on this duo. Move away.
You've been running around so frenetically that you have cheated yourself out of one or two special experiences. So today, you have got to slow down -- or else you'll miss the point of the life you are living. And your multi-tasking needs to come to a stop, too. You've got to fully experience everything you are doing one hundred percent, whether it's watching a television commercial or listening to music. When you divide your attentions, you devalue your experiences. Focus.
When you get yet another voice mail from that overeager friend today, it might be time to draw some boundaries. This person has been getting a little bit too greedy for your time, and if it's starting to bother you it's time to stop it. There's no reason not to start saying 'no' to their next invitations. If they ask why, you don't have to mince words -- but do tell them that you need a break in a diplomatic and sensitive way. You need time to yourself, and they need to understand that.
Nothing is for certain today, even the things you take for granted (like noon time hunger pangs). And while this uncertainty could be uncomfortable, you could choose to see it as an opportunity. Today can be a good day or a bad day -- depending on what you choose to make of it. Missed that killer parking spot by three seconds? Wonderful! You get to enjoy a little more fresh air as you walk from the spot that's farther away. Your creativity enables you to make lemonade out of any lemons.
You will encounter someone whose original way of seeing the world could shock you to stillness today. Whenever you experience new things like this, though, you know enough to slow down and take them in one detail at a time. Ask questions whenever you need clarity about what they're saying. Make no assumptions. This person has a different perspective on life, and while it might not be one that you agree with, it should be one that you respect and learn more about.
Memories of someone you used to be in a relationship with are keeping you from moving forward in your life. Are you getting stuck in the past? While it's important to understand how old relationships can affect your new relationships, you could run the risk of getting bogged down in nostalgia right now. Not much can get done when all you do is compare your current life to the life you used to have. Put away the photo albums and focus on moving on. Your future awaits!
You know when someone is just telling you something that you want to hear instead of being square with you -- and today it's going to be quite obvious to you that someone who is all talk and no action is simply stalling for time. But if you can afford to give them more time, why don't you? They'll appreciate your compassion and will owe you a big favor in the future. You don't have to let on that you have this person's number. Leaving them in the dark will help you stay in control.
You've been attracting some flighty people who are looking to you to make the tough choices in their life that they in fact need to be making themselves. Today, their dependency on you is going to get on your nerves. It's tough to shove someone out of the nest, but it's tough love time. Let them know that while you care about them and support them, you cannot have this much responsibility in their life. They might not like what they hear, but you have to say it before they get too dependent.
You'll be able to be everyone's hero today by solving all sorts of problems. All you need to do is use your own special brand of creativity to get the job done. From something as minor as a broken zipper to something as major as a missed deadline, you can easily master every little unpleasant surprise that comes your way. And the fact that you are feeling so calm and confident will go a long way toward helping people trust in you and give you the power you need.
Someone's cliche commentary will start to get on your nerves today -- you're sick and tired of them beating around the bush, trying not to offend anyone. You want them to choose a side, say their true feelings, and face up to the consequences! You can't control another person's behavior, but you can show them how you want them to behave. Encourage the type of direct communication you crave. They might be surprised by your boldness at first, but they will get the message.
