It's a great time to make friends, especially close to home. Or perhaps you will meet people in a cooking or home-improvement class. Regardless, it will round out your routine and give you some relief from the countless daily details. You won't neglect any important responsibility. A slightly broader outlook will help you see through the sometimes imaginary pressures that are created by other people's concerns. Stand your ground, stay true to what you want to do, and true friends will support you and maybe join in. Enjoy a bright, upbeat year!
