On the piece of birthday cake that is your life, are you saving the rose made of frosting for the last bite? There's no need to hold off on enjoying the good stuff today. Dig right in, and don't worry that there won't be more coming along soon. You have to relish the gifts you are given today, and use them! Do not put them away for a rainy day, save them to share with someone else, or anything like that. What you have been given is yours to do with what you will.


There's only one cup of coffee left in the coffeemaker. Who gets it? This question turns into an outright battle at the start of the week. Monday through Wednesday, especially at work, everyone feels entitled, and no one's in a generous mood. Frustratingly, this has an effect on your job performance. It isn't until Thursday that you actually enjoy yourself and get something done. Friday is a good day for planning the details of a challenging new project, a project you might keep working on into the weekend. When you're excited about something, you can't help yourself.


Rather than worry about how on earth you are going to bring this project you just got started to a successful conclusion on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd, just do your best to focus on the issues at hand. After all, the only way to make a journey is step by step. So think about today's step, and maybe tomorrow's step. And don't worry about what will happen after that (here's a hint: It will continue to be a series of steps, with the occasional misstep). 'Tis the season, but be sure you aren't totally overextending yourself on the 4th and 5th. Get together with friends and loved ones on the 10th and 11th. You're feeling fabulous -- and looking very, very cute -- by the awfully positive 14th and 15th. Do some creative writing or poetry composition or finger painting on the 19th and 20th. Any gathering that involves a couple of bright-eyed kiddies will lift your spirits in a serious way on the 23rd, 24th and 25th. Enjoy! Don't over-plan, but do make a list of New Year's resolutions on the 30th. Celebrate the New Year in a low key way on the 31st.
