This is a good day to celebrate yourself! At least once a year, whether it's on your birthday or not, you have to give a cheer for who you are and what you bring to the world. Make some time to do something just for yourself today -- take yourself out for a long lunch, convince some buddies to meet you after work for dinner, schedule a spa day, or go shopping for something you don't really need. Take on the possibilities of the day and resist the comfort of a rote routine.
On Monday you realize that there's a big difference between taking action and reacting. The former is calm and cares about doing the right thing, no matter how it looks. The latter has qualities of over-compensation and worries about how other people will react. You have the courage of your convictions by midweek, thanks to this epiphany, and you do what's best for all parties involved. By Friday, you see miraculous results -- listening to your intuition and following it is scary, but it pays off in numerous ways. Use the weekend for doing what you do best: talking, laughing and enjoying life.
A couple of unexpected interruptions and a bunch of delays and a few extra details could leave you feeling downright harried on the 1st. Rather than go along with it and let yourself get flustered, why not take advantage of the uncertainty and get in a little five minute walk? You'll feel a lot better with a little fresh air. If you can, sneak out at lunch and get in a swim. You'll feel better than ever, despite all the unexpected interruptions and nagging details, if you do. You're in a good spot to get creative on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th, so get creative! By the super terrific 7th and 8th, everything you want will be within reach. What could be better? Almost nothing. Except that awesome grilled cheese sandwich you get for lunch. Mmm, good. Give yourself plenty of downtime, especially if you're feeling a little blue on the 13th, 14th and 15th. You need to acknowledge your feelings and indulge in plenty of TLC. Give your major relationships some major thought on the 20th and 21st. How are things working, as far as you're concerned? Make something more beautiful on the 27th and 28th. End the month with a whole-hearted creative effort.
