  • Spend an hour each day without saying anything except in answer to direct questions, in the midst of the usual group, without creating the impression that you’re sulking or ill. Be as ordinary as possible. But do not volunteer remarks or try to draw out information.
  • Think for 30 minutes a day about one subject exclusively. Start with five minutes.
  • Write a letter without using the words I, me, mine, my.
  • Talk for 15 minutes a day without using I, me, my, mine.
  • Write a letter in a “successful” or placid tone. No misstatements, no lying. Look for aspects or activities that can be honestly reported that way.
  • Pause on the threshold of any crowded room and size it up.
  • Keep a new acquaintance talking about him...

I waited so long to make resolutions this year; I think, for the longest time, law school applications seemed like a carry-over of last year and, because I wasn't able to finish them until yesterday, I have always been stuck on last year. Now for this year, which will be a sad but wonderful year. Last years always are. I have high hopes.

  • Go natural: I've never really loved make up that much, but I've always worn it because I've felt uncomfortable with the state of my skin which has always had something wrong with it. I don't have severe acne--or even moderate acne--and I never have. Still, I always feel like others have better skin than I do, so I frequently feel compelled to hide it. I want to stop doing that. I want to treat my body better and put fewer chemicals in and on it. I know that the secret to beauty is ...

  • 11012009: Queen of Pentacles / 6 of Cups / Queen of Swords
    • Today will start out strongly rooted in routine and duty. I will get the things that need to be done, done, and with very little resistance. The day then phases into a comfortable lulling of pleasant activities by midday. The evening will be filled with intellectual activities; however, it may also hold the potential for overly harsh self-criticism. Because the energy of the Queen of Pentacles resonates throughout the day, however, I feel like there will be a strong tension later in the day between wanting to get things done and mental embarrassment or anguish resulting from self-criticism. It's important to find a balance of mental self-criticism and having a positive effect in getting things done. In mid-day it will also...

  • 10132009 Eight of Pentacles / Death (XIII) / Two of Cups
    • Today will be about rebuilding and reorganizing my life on the most basic level so as to create a clean break from a past relationship or love problem; it will center around getting over a change in love through small but meaningful steps like reorganizing my closet, focusing on school, blocking time more effectively, etc. Today will also be about change, letting go of the past, spiritual rediscovery, making plans for the future, and stepping back to take a good look at the situation from a broader perspective. I also think that today will be realizing that there is more to be thankful for in my life than I think and I should seize those blessings and make the best of them.
