It’s okay if your patience is running thin with a flighty friend, and it’s okay to take a break from spending time with them. Relationships go through phases, and it’s just not healthy to pretend that your feelings for someone else never go through changes. Right now, you need to clear up your emotions about this person and get your distance. Figure out what they add to your life, and figure out if you are adding anything to theirs. Are you just friends out of habit?
A couple of your recent hunches might have been slightly off the mark, but that doesn’t mean that you should lose any confidence in your intuitive powers! Your reaction to an unusual development later in the day will reassure you that while there could be periodic glitches in your sixth sense, you really can rely on your gut to help you make the right choices in life. You are taking control of your own destiny and shouldn’t hesitate to do something surprising just because it feels right.
Thinking of the bigger picture will help you avoid a lot of conflict today, so try to let the little things slide. If a friend is adamant about something, don’t point out to them how they’re wrong. Just do it their way. And if a co-worker needs you to do a certain thing for no apparent reason, just go along with them. These are not the kinds of battles you should expend the energy to fight. Save your strength for the things that count!
Keeping track of what you need to do and what you have done is important today. You need to be organized in order to be prepared for any surprise additions to your schedule. Someone’s signed you up for something you didn’t know about? The good news is that you’re going to love getting involved. The bad news is that you’ll be under a time crunch. That’s why it’s in your best interests to get all your ducks in a row as early as you can today.
Arguments are inconvenient things. They create delays in progress, they create hurt feelings, and they create distraction. If you’re in the middle of a conflict with someone today, ask yourself who is benefiting. Is someone on the outside affecting your thinking or even fanning the flames of this fire? Focus on who you have issues with, and speak to them directly. Don’t go through a third party. They will only confuse the issue. Don’t add more noise to the discussion.
Just because you feel strongly about something doesn’t mean that all your friends do, too. If you make a speech about a certain issue or comment on a topic today, you shouldn’t expect everyone to applaud you. Be ready for some disagreement from the group. Luckily, the debate that ensues will be fun, respectful, and, most importantly, educational. The best way to learn more about the people you love is to hear them argue their case.
You’ve got a lot of things going on right now, but you don’t have time to deal with all of them. Solution? Delegate. Give away as many errands, tasks, and jobs as possible today. You have plenty of family members, co-workers, and friends who would be happy to take something off your hands, so give them a call. Find out who can help you out. By the end of the day, things should start getting back to normal. Don’t forget to thank them for their help so they’ll want to help you again!
You need to let yourself go, or at least try to. Having too much control over other people’s lives might make you think that you have more power, but that is merely an illusion. Give control over to fate today. Let things happen the way they happen, and let other people make all the decisions for a while. This will free you up to explore the more passive side of your personality, and greatly reduce the amount of stress on your shoulders.
Your “just ignore them” philosophy for handling busybodies might not be enough to get you through the drama that today brings into your life. The bad news is that so many people will be poking their noses into your life that you won’t be able to ignore them all. But the good news is that you can take advantage of the attention they are paying you to teach them how to mind their own business. Be more aggressive about the fact that you know how to run your life just fine, thanks.
New beginnings happen every day, usually without you noticing them. If you’re wishing your life were different, take a moment to realize that it actually is! Focusing all the time on what you wish could be better is too negative and narrow-minded. You should try a little harder to take note of the progress you have made and pat yourself of the back for the good things you have accomplished. Sure, you may have a little farther to go, but who doesn’t?
You’re feeling possessive about your belongings today, and you won’t be in a very sharing mood. Luckily, you won’t be expected to give up very much of what you have. The only problem that might arise could be in terms of a friendship. You’re feeling a stronger connection with someone, and it’s verging on proprietary. Remember that they have a right to spend time with whomever they want, so try not to get upset if they don’t choose you. It’s nothing personal!
Today, someone you love may need some cheering up. They are doubting themselves a little bit right now, and you are in the best position to put them back on the track to self-reliance. You’ve been where they are, so you have unique insight on how they are feeling. Lend your support. You can start with a relaxed conversation about their issues. You don’t have to take on the burden of solving their problems. You just have to get them talking. That’s all they need.
