Pi­ano Recital tonight

Cebu Daily News - - LIFE -


Your life feels like it’s on fast-for­ward, but your fi­nan­cial is­sues, pri­mary re­la­tion­ships, and home re­spon­si­bil­i­ties all cry out for ex­tra attention. This is ac­tu­ally a good thing—you should ac­com­plish quite a lot.


It’s not ex­actly com­fort­able when some­one de­cides that you’re go­ing to solve all their prob­lems for them. Tell that loved one that they need to find their own solutions—and to give you a lit­tle room to breathe.


Life is easy to­day, es­pe­cially with the uni­verse in such a gen­er­ous mood. A few nag­ging doubts might threaten to ruin your fun, but don’t get all bent out of shape just be­cause things aren’t per­fect.


Stretchin­goutin­some­one’sdoor­wayan­drefus­ing to leave un­til they agree you’re right is al­ways an op­tion, and so is hold­ing your breath un­til you turn blue. An­other clas­sic is the si­lent treat­ment, of course.


You may tend to­ward over­con­fi­dence—or even lazi­ness—on the job to­day, but they must be avoided at all costs. En­sure that your col­leagues know all about the sched­ule since com­mu­ni­ca­tion can eas­ily go off the rails.


If you’re feel­ing some­what frag­ile, han­dle your­selfwith­care—an­dle­ty­ourpeo­ple­know you need some warm fuzzies from them as well. It’s hard for you to say no to those you care about.


You need a lit­tle sympathy if you want to soothe your trou­bled soul. You’ve got peo­ple who are great lis­ten­ers. They could help you clar­i­fy­wheth­ery­ouneed­goodad­vice­or­justa fresh pair of ears.


Watch out for cal­en­dar over­load. It can be hard, es­pe­cially since so many amaz­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties are fly­ing your way, but they’re all worth­less if you're slug­gish thanks to ex­haus­tion or go­ing in­sane from stress.


You’re feel­ing a lit­tle less wild and quite a bit milder. You need a change of pace. Give your heart what it needs—start­ing with a day off. Don't work your­self to death just be­cause it’s what you think you ought to be do­ing.


Cyn­i­cism is the easy way out, and it helps no one in the end. It’s way too easy to grouch about how hard life is now, but when was it ever easy? It’s still a deeply in­ter­est­ing world around you.


Old mem­o­ries might be over­whelm­ing so be­ware of any sit­u­a­tions that could trig­ger nos­tal­gia or re­mind you of past pain. It’s a good time to avoid sad movies and deep con­ver­sa­tions with those who al­ways push your but­tons.


Ro­mance­can­beanaw­ful­lotof­fun—un­less­the rules keep chang­ing. It’s no fun at all for any of the play­ers. Don’t let your­self get caught up in emo­tional messes or ma­nip­u­la­tion by mak­ing your moral code clear and stick­ing to it. RE­MINDER for tonight at 7 p.m. at the au­di­to­rium of the Mar­colo B. Fer­nan Press Cen­ter:

It was a nice af­ter­noon at the Pres­i­den­tial Suite of the Radis­son Blu Ho­tel to meet the new gen­eral man­ager Stephan Sieberg and his l ovely wife Stephanie. They are from Ger­many, and look for­ward to a pleas­ant tour of duty in Cebu. They have been meet­ing key peo­ple from the Cebu com­mu­nity.

Our turn was with the Life­style icons, as you can see from this photo we have to­day.

*** We also have a photo of Dr. Warfe En­gra­cia who was among the Out­stand­ing In­di­vid­u­als (for cul­ture) awarded by the City of Cebu dur­ing the re­cent Char­ter Day cel­e­bra­tions. He shares his thoghts with us, and you, dear­est read­ers:

“In the spam of two months I re­ceived two pres­ti­gious awards, the other one be­ing Doc­tor of Hu­man­i­ties Honoris Causa from the North­west­ern Univer­sity of Florida, USA.

“Truly, I feel very blessed, with th­ese honors I am hop­ing that your read­ers will be in­spired to fol­low my hum­ble foot­step.

“It will not only ben­e­fit the re­cip­i­ents of such awards but most im­por­tantly the peo­ple who we serve are the rea­sons we are be­stowed th­ese honors.”
