DAILY HOROSCOPE • JUN 17, 2019: Your task today is to appreciate everything. This doesn't mean that you should write a thank-you note for everyone who smiles at you today, but it does mean that you should take an extra second every once in a while to remind yourself that you have it so much better than so many other people. Sure, things aren't perfect—and sometimes the people you love can drive you a bit crazy. But you wouldn't trade it for anything—this is a day to contemplate that.
DAILY HOROSCOPE • JUN 17, 2019: Turn all your attention toward resolving unfinished business today. Is there a project you left half finished, a person who is waiting to hear from you or an errand you need to run? Get on it as soon as you can this morning. Minor plans could turn into major headaches if you're not too careful. Don't be shy—make as many phone calls as it takes to reconnect with the people you need to speak with. You'll be grateful you went through all the effort.
My young son declared, “When I grow up, I’m going to marry you, Mommy.”
“You can’t marry your own mother,” said his older sister.
“Then I’ll marry you.”
“You can’t marry me either.”
He looked confused, so I explained, “You can’t marry someone in your own family.”
“You mean I have to marry a total stranger?!” he cried.
Blac Chyna is firing back at her baby daddy, Rob Kardashian, after he had his attorney sent a letter instructing her that their daughter, Dream, absolutely CANNOT appear on her new reality show, "The Real Blac Chyna" ... while taking some swipes at his own family at the same time. She posted a lengthy statement Saturday, saying in part ... "Had Rob contacted me directly rather than through his attorney Marty Singer, Rob would have learned about Dream participation in the show." She goes on to say that Dream was never going to be part of her show, and that she would never subject the kid to "long hours" on set. Further, she says she'd never let Dream be in the presence of the real drama that Chyna and her mom experienced while filming. Chyna writes, "It is very unfortunate that Rob could not simply have an adult conversation with me 'the mother of his child,' Dream Kardashian, appearing on my show." Then come the shots at the Kardashian family as a whole. Chyna went on to criticize the fact that Rob and co. have featured Dream on their own reality show, allegedly without ever consulting Chyna and seeing if she was good with it. BC gets pretty nasty with her critique, writing ... "I also would have pointed out to Rob the hypocrisy of his family's insistence that Dream appear on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' in the family's desperate attempt to boost the dismal ratings for their stale and contrived show, without my approval, including an entire scene being Dream's birthday party, again without my consent." Chyna finished her thoughts by saying, "My show is about my life and my kids are a huge part of my life. It's really sad that everything I do to better myself or my family the same people have something to say to stop or hinder it." Rob Kardashian's pumping the brakes on his 2-year-old daughter becoming a big TV star ... or at the very least he's making sure it doesn't happen on Blac Chyna's new reality show. Rob's lawyer, legal pit bull Marty Singer, fired off a threatening letter to Chyna, telling her their daughter, 2-year-old Dream, CANNOT appear on her show, "The Real Blac Chyna," without Rob's consent, and he will NOT give consent. As we reported, Rob and Chyna share 50/50 joint custody, and Singer says there's no way Dream's mother can turn a TV camera on Dream without Rob being on board. According to the letter, Chyna sent Rob an appearance release for Dream to appear on the series, and he's not gonna sign. We're told Rob has several reasons for withholding consent. He's seen all the drama with Chyna ... most recently, getting into a crazy fight with her former hairdresser while Dream was in the house and an explosive fight with her mom. We're told Rob feels her life is way too tumultuous and a reality show would just exacerbate the situation. Beyond that, Rob's had his own experience with reality shows, and for the most part, the experience wasn't good. He doesn't want his daughter subjected to the long hours, the lights and the drama.

Give credit where credit is due, and make sure you communicate how impressed you are. It can be hard to praise someone (especially someone who might not be your favorite person), but acknowledging truth can be an empowering act. Think of the greater benefit to yourself, and pat someone else on the back.

It is only a matter of time before you are proved to have been right all along, so just bide your time and bite your tongue.

This isn't a question of ignoring real problems you may be mulling over, it's a question of letting go of worry. There are things you just can't do anything about—those are the things you have to stop thinking about today. Move on with positive thoughts, and leave the old ones behind.
DAILY HOROSCOPE • JUN 17, 2019: Sitting around and worrying about your personal problems is not going to help you work through any of them, now is it? A much better tactic would be to focus on other people's issues and think about what you can do to help the people you love. You'll feel better about yourself, and you'll gain a new perspective. You have a strong ability to be compassionate without losing your objectivity. Strive to be honest without hurting anyone's feelings.

DAILY HOROSCOPE • JUN 17, 2019: It might not make you very comfortable to take a wait-and-see attitude about your latest risky move, but it is the smartest tactic to take. The universe is testing your patience a little bit, in an effort to prepare you for some long-term opportunities that are right around the bend. To keep yourself from trying to push things further today, distract yourself with a social event. Even going to a movie by yourself will help take your mind off of the things that you can't affect.
