Today is a great day to hang out with a troubled friend and cheer them up. There has been a lot of drama in their life recently, and you can provide them with the quiet normalcy that they need so badly. Schedule something fun but mellow that the two of you can do together. A movie and a meal, a long hike, or even just some time sitting in front of the TV together will give them the chance to share their thoughts with you. And it will give you the chance to listen with your full attention.
You have everyone's email addresses, and you have the social capital to make things happen. You're the one to organize this get-together, which likely involves a combination of friends and family. With the stress of the week, you might find yourself taking a walk to clear your head and release some of the pressure on your shoulders, but by Friday, people are going to be thanking you for all you've done. Being the center of the social orbit is not easy, although it can be fun. Plus, knowing you've introduced great people to one another will be one of the thrills of your week.
Your natural instinct is usually to give, give, give, then give some more. Whether you're helping take up the slack at work or you're lending your deadbeat cousin money when you go home for a weekend visit, you tend to do a lot (and sometimes a little too much) for others. On the 1st, make a concerted effort not to give, give, give. Instead, keep. And if you're feeling adventurous, take. It's crucial, after all, that you allow others to help you out too sometimes. Otherwise, you're not really letting them be close to you. By the 4th, 5th and 6th, you are in control. Want these to be good days? Make 'em that way. Everything is pretty wonderful (without you needing to lift a finger) on the stupendous 12th and 13th. Enjoy the heck out of it! By the how-did-you-wind-up-with-so-many-family-obligations 19th and 20th, you had better just go ahead and meet the obligations you signed up for, and make a mental note to commit to less next time. Nothing is set in stone on the 25th. Take time for a little soul searching on the 29th, 30th and 31st.
