Listen to others, today, when they suggest you do something you're not totally comfortable doing. Their objectivity enables them to see this as a growing opportunity for you, and it's one you could really benefit from. You have nothing to lose, and the experience will be empowering in the end. Conquering your fears doesn't have to be a scary thing -- has it ever occurred to you that it could be fun? So step out of your comfort zone. They are right behind you, giving you support.


The first half of the week, you feel like there's so much going on you'll never be able to get it all done, but that's not true. Make a list of priorities, then look at your schedule and eliminate anything unnecessary. The last half of the week, don't distract yourself from what's really important in this life, so turn off the TV and head somewhere that stimulates your gray matter. Friday and over the weekend, the time is right for a little getaway, so hit the road. Grab your favorite companion and be ready to embrace adventure. You need to recharge, regenerate and reconnect in a big way.


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.
