本周腾出时间来娱乐一下。看来, 最近当朋友给你打电话邀你一起去玩时, 出于某种原因，你没想加入他们。本周如果你让自己放松下来，拥有些乐趣，也不会有什么事的。
有时，你很自然而然地可以控制一切; 但有时就是不奏效。如果生活有点纠结, 看看你一直在控制什么。你可能会惊讶地发现,你不必真的掌控你生活的某方面，放手让它自由发展, 无论如何这都会给你带来更多的平和、享受。
本周当你感到悲伤时,问问自己, 问题真正来自哪里?你是不是感知到了别人的悲伤和沮丧?如果是这样, 对他们施与额外的同情, 但是千万不要加入到他们当中。
因为你通常都是“厚脸皮”，有时人们不明白他们的言语实际上可以伤害到你。这星期要当心，人们将试图挑战他们的界限，而与你说一些刻薄的话。与其逃跑, 不如面对他们, 确切地告诉他们，他们所说的话造成的后果。
最近你感觉像一只青蛙,跳来跳去,落到最终无法支撑你的荷叶上。或者你厌倦了呆在荷叶上，决定改变生活会更令人兴奋。是时间冷静下来, 休息一下了。选择一个好地方, 充满阳光的一个休息室。谁知道呢? 如果你继续呆在莲叶上，你可能会等到一个绝好的机会呢!
本周关注改善与朋友间的交流。有时我们理所当然地总是认为, 因为他们认识我们, 他们也会懂我们说话的意思。可并非总是如此。确保他们知道你只是在开玩笑,或者你是认真的，当你告诉他们你很高兴他们是你的朋友。
这一周，你应该尝试新事物。品尝新食物, 结交新朋友, 或者尝试一个新餐馆。最近你一直感觉有点停滞，改变你生活的常规，你可能会发现一些一直错过的令人兴奋的事物 。
本周的焦点将在友情上面。你有一个想成为朋友的同学吗? 你有一些你想结交的朋友吗? 本周落实这些计划。友情不是给等待的人的, 而是给那些愿意主动出击的人。
最近，你一直感觉额外暴躁。人们一直在打扰你! 他们有那么多的问题, 都想要得到你的关注。不要那么抱怨，还是帮帮他们吧。
你的耐心快消耗完了。人们似乎不太明白,是不是? 但也许他们永远也不会明白。问题是, 你发觉了吗? 如果你感觉就像一直被卡在相同的情况下,只是与不同得人而已,这就是你的标志! 看看你如何能改善这些情况。如果你搞清楚了,机会是每个人都会明白你一直试图想改变的事情。
有时小憩一下可以是一件好事。但不是本周。首先投入进去，把所有这些令人讨厌的小问题快速解决掉! 如果不, 它们会恶化, 很快就会变的非常糟糕。但是你已经知道这一点了，不是吗? 用那些你已有的想法去解决问题吧。
失望总是似乎让你感到十分沮丧!记住, 事情很快会有所好转, 通常比你想的更快。不要沉浸在消极当中，也不必要延长不开心的时间。去看看日出和日落。万事有一个循环周期。
努力去善待他人。甚至对街上的流浪狗。通常你不会注意到这些事情,但本周,所有令人悲伤的情景都会吸引你的注意。最好的缓解这种情况的方式是, 去尽你所能地帮助他们。你可能不会解决你看到的所有的问题,但是你最起码可以丢给流浪狗一块骨头, 那样它就不会那么饥饿了。
你感觉自己被遗忘在角落里了吗? 是不是每个人都在做有趣的事情,去有趣的地方,做令人兴奋的事情，而你却困在家里呢? 不要宅在家里了，出去走走! 。付出行动。你知道你想要什么。当你可以为你自己创造乐趣时，为什么还总宅在家里呢？
你发现你自己身处在一个棘手的状况当中，你不确定你是否喜欢这样! 一方面,你喜欢被别人需要和提供建议。你发现这很有趣。另一方面,人们并不总是采取你的建议, 当事情不如你预料地那样发展时，他们还责备你。看看你能做些什么来摆脱这个麻烦。也许只用提提问题,让别人发觉他们需要做什么?
本周你周围的人会因琐碎,无关紧要的事情而担心。只有他们不想看到这一点,无论你怎样努力、试着告诉他们, 他们都听不进去。他们甚至可能会生你的气，因为你试图渺小化他们的痛苦与磨难。让他们“经历风浪的考验吧”。他们会更快乐, 你也会如此，因为你所必须做的只是点头,说“可怜的家伙!”
你感觉像一棵树,慢慢地散落着叶子。不要担心感觉一无所有。大树会介意冬天吗? 不会, 因为他们在悄悄地等待着春天的到来。你的春天什么时候到来?只有你知道!
当你这么地努力, 这么地强迫自己，你肯定会崩溃的!本周花一些时间放松一下。当然, 你通常不喜欢这么做，因为你非常想有所成就。甚至一杯五分钟的热茶就够了。你的任务: 放松!
你还记得, 小时候当你第一次学会边走边跳的时候，你那所有的乐趣吗? 这个星期，花时间想想什么东西每天能带给你这种快乐。
一个有趣的挑战。你会接受吗? 拒绝的后果可能会很可怕，但挑战可能会力不从心。嗯, 那不是真的,是吗?你可以承担任何事情! 你知道要做什么。
