Why waste all of your charm on new people who you don't know very well? Today, you should focus on the people who already know and appreciate you. They deserve the benefit of your wonderful wit and warmth more than anyone else, don't you think? If you spend all of your energy trying to put on a show every time you encounter someone new, what will you have left over for the people who stand by you through thick and thin? Let new people work harder at impressing you, for a change.
It's easy to be happy in hindsight, but better to do it in the present. During the first half of the week, make it a daily practice to appreciate what it is that you have now, whether that means being grateful for a sunny morning or the extra cream cheese the counterperson puts on your bagel. Your efforts to love life really come to fruition in the latter part of the week. The lesson isn't just to not sweat the small stuff, but to love the small stuff for allowing you to practice being in a state of grace. The weekend is a splendid time to get physical: Work in the garden or go for a walk.
If you're feeling a little like you just got off the express train to Dullsville and there's no plane, train or bus heading out of here for days on the 1st or 2nd, take a deep breath. Instead of feeling bored, why not concentrate on the fact that you are lucky enough to be in a calm spot right now. Instead of your usual, super hectic hustle and bustle, you can relax a bit. And there is nothing wrong with relaxation! Nothing at all. By the earthy, grounded, feeling-good 7th and 8th, you've eased into relaxation. Wonderful! Make the most of this lull in the action. By the ever so slightly crazed 13th, 14th and 15th, you need to make a serious effort to slow down. Even if somebody is pushing you to speed up! You're in a pretty great space on the 16th and 17th. You should definitely go on a date! You really, really should tell them how you feel, without leaving anything out, on the 21st and 22nd. Romance finds you waiting with open arms on the 25th, 26th and 27th. Yay! Share that box of chocolates with your coworkers on the 28th.
