For the next week or two its all a question of too much energy bouncing around and how to direct it. We have a distinct tendency to jump the gun, dashing over the line before the start bell rings, which only forces everyone to go back and start all over again. And were so sure we can run that extra mile, jump that hurdle, make that stoplight -- but impulsive bursts of energy can lead to accidents and unwanted visits to the doctor.
On the other hand, when we get knocked down, we get up again, just like the song says. Whether were impulsively adventurous, thoughtlessly hasty or rebelliously risk-taking, our confidence is misplaced. Our blossoming egos may need some pruning. It won't be too severe, though, and well definitely be the better for it. Intermittent surges of energy can suddenly evaporate completely, so make hay while the sun shines. We should resist any temptation to gamble or speculate at this time, because we feel a sense of luck that time will betray.
