Born today, you see things as they really are, but you never let that get you down -- even when things are tough all over. Why is that? The fact is that you see potential in everything, and even when things have declined dramatically, you recognize the simple truth that, in most cases, there is nowhere to go at that point but up -- and that's what really gets you going. You believe that forward motion cures all ills.
Because you are likely no stranger to hardship, you're likely to find great pleasure in the little things, and simplicity, when you have the time to enjoy it fully, becomes a kind of balm that soothes you and supports your positive outlook. When it comes to relationships, you are understanding and quite tolerant -- almost to a fault.
Also born on this date are: Mary Martin, actress; Bette Midler, singer, actress, entertainer; Richard Pryor, comedian and actor; Lou Rawls, singer; Woody Allen, actor, writer, director, comedian; Lee Trevino, golfer.
