You're tempted to hide out today, but reality may not be so forgiving. You have pressing responsibilities that need your attention and there's little room for changing your schedule now. However, you can gain a better perspective that ultimately leads to new options if you take time to listen to your inner thoughts. This self-reflection enables you to come out of your shell later in the day. Remember, contemplation might not appear to be productive, but it's exactly what you need to clear your mind.
