A realistic outlook will be necessary this year. View situations from a distance and refuse to let your emotions run the show when practicality is required. Use your knowledge, experience and intelligence to outsmart anyone trying to disrupt your plans or life. Be yourself, don't make excuses and follow through with your commitments. Your happiness is your responsibility.
