just.keep.swimming's Journal, 30 December 2011

:) Today I am choosing to have a good day.
I got all of my moping and wallowing out of the way yesterday and I am going to do better today. I'm going to end 2011 on a positive note.

I've gotten my punishment for cheating on my diet... Last night I was up most of the night with a fever and nausea. Plus all of the weight gain.

On the topic of sending out the year with a bang- I still don't know what I'm doing. My brother and sister-in-law are throwing a party at their new house and I'd planned to attend. Now, they call and tell me that the party is still on, but they lied and told my best friend that it's off so she wouldn't come. So I'm pretty sure that I'll be having a quiet New Year's with my friend.

Random topic: I never check my horoscope because they kind of scare me- the idea that you will read that it'll be a bad day and then make it one simply by your expectations. However, I was on another website and mine popped up. I thought it was funny in a wonderful kind of way.

Today in general- "You may not feel like your engine is working today. For some reason, it seems like you're using the wrong fuel. Don't be surprised if it's a bit harder to get in touch with your emotional state. Your feelings are playing tricks on you. Do your best not to be thrown off balance by this energy. It gets easier from here."
Finding a job has been the topic of distress this week- here's the career outlook- "Tend to your garden of work-related projects. You need to stay disciplined in order to produce the results that you are hoping for. Stick to the schedule and don't deviate from your plan. The more stable you are, the more you will accomplish."
I've put off dating for right now, because I feel I need to get myself straightened out first. Part of my love horoscope-"You may decide to give up on love and relationships altogether, given the current planetary aspect. Be patient and don't deter from the path you are on. Keep going!" "Show how strong, smart, and self-sufficient you are. Save doubts and fears for the friends who can talk sense into you."
Other excerpts- "Communication is one of the main tenets of good health [...] Try to exercise with the awareness that you're heart must be healthy in order to speak its truth." "This week is about balancing your family obligations with your social commitments." "Think before you act on Friday. Hasty decisions will lead to regret later."

So I don't really believe in horoscopes, but almost everything on there worked for me today. I do however, generally believe that the universe gives you what you need and it seems that today I needed some thoughts reinforced.
That's it for today. Time to go stick to my schedule. :)

*EDIT* It's the end of the day now. I stuck to my diet, and got a decent amount accomplished. More than 25 applications submitted, (HOLY MOLY!) maybe I'll get a full-time job from one of them. Tomorrow I might be a little more domestic (ie, time to clean...) and hit the applications again on Monday. I'm pretty darn proud of myself for accomplishing something worthwhile today. Bring on 2012.
