focus.on.the.game

I'll feel totally flirtatious around strangers today. Give 'em a wink and a smile! I wasn't on my game last week, mostly because I was concentrating on a certain someone, and quite unable to think about much else. Well, it's a whole new workweek, and this time out I'll need to have my wits about me. Even if I have to force myself, I really must put all my energy into the task at hand. I can do it. Focus, now. Focus.

show.them.what.i.got

A challenge will draw upon one of my hidden strengths and I'll surprise someone. I'm so ready to get the show on the road that my enthusiasm has caught on with at least one of my dear friends. They may even be thinking of doing something that's similar to what I'm up to, or of asking if they might follow my lead, quite literally. If I manage to combine my plans and make a team effort of it, so much the better. What could be better than making a new start with an old friend?

patience.is.a.virtue

My patience will be tested today, and losing my temper will lose me some power. Ready for a break in the action? Well, it's about time and a surprise message will bring me just that happy news. Since I've been out so much lately, I'll actually be in the mood to relax tonight with friends, chatting over the news. In fact, regardless of the plans I've made, I may be much more likely to insist on staying in and either cooking or ordering out, simply to please a party of two. It's okay. We all like to hide out from time to time. After all this celebrating, it's certainly my turn.

secrets

I'll take the advice of friends and associates, I'll start planning my next vacation now.
Secrets have never been my specialty. I much prefer talking about everything that crosses my mind just as soon as it happens by. At the moment, one particular secret is becoming just impossible for me to keep quiet about. It's just too darned exciting to keep to myself. If I feel the need to share it with a friend, go right ahead. I'll just be sure to choose the right one.

top.secret.secret

Remember: Dreaming about a change is a waste of time. Making a change is progress.
I may have something I'd like to share with someone, but if it's a deeply personal matter and I don't feel comfortable about it just yet, I'll be right to hold back. While I have no problem keeping quiet about a secret that belongs to someone else, being quiet about my own top-secret news is a bit tougher. That doesn't mean I shouldn't share, only that I should take special care when I'm deciding whom to invite along for this underground ride.

relax

A misunderstanding causes gigantic waves; resolve to be more direct next time. I have to go out today. There's no doubt about it. Right? I've got to get provisions. Real, actual food, and maybe a video I haven't yet seen for later. Of course, I'm also fighting the urge to stay in, watch my favorite movies (again), have egg noodles (again), and continue to entertain myself on my own terms. Oh, well. When was the last time I played hooky? I'll stay in my flannel jammies and stay comfy.

swallow.my.pride

I'll hold on to my ideals. It's the one area where compromise is totally unacceptable. It's Day Two of a brand new year, and the continued absence of a certain far-away loved one may be making me cranky. Well, stop it. I'll do what I've got to do to reestablish contact, even if it means swallowing my pride and being the first to apologize. If I'm finding it tough to pick up the phone, I'll think about this: Five years from now, or ten, even, will either of I remember who made the first move? Or will I both just be glad that someone did?
