There won't be much time for personal endeavours. The needs of others will come first.
Did you forget just how wonderful it can be to step out into the world and experience life? Have you spent too much time in the shadows, dealing with problems that never seem to let you break out and bask in the warmth and pleasure of the sunshine? This is your day to step away from your worries and let life sweep you up into its arms for a moment of healing and reattachment to the people and places from which you have become disengaged.
Don't make promises that you can't keep. It will only weaken your credibility.
