Last weekend when Liz was visiting me, we kicked around CT on Sunday, by kicked around CT, I mean we hiked up and down Greenwich Avenue and spent the rest of the afternoon at the Stamford Town Center before getting a li’l tipsy at karaoke at Casey’s. It was the perfect weekend, and beyond needed.
One of the better parts was when we were in Greenwich, my old store had a psychic there doing free readings. I’d never pay for anything like that but I was curious to see what she had in store for my future.
“Make two wishes. Tell me one and keep one to yourself.”
I wished for financial stability. My 2nd wish was being curious if I was on the right path with my career – all the changes I’ve made in the past year have left me insecure and uneasy in some of my decisions.
I don’t remember exactly what she said but she said something about new opportunities, a lot of travel, lots of new doors opening, the next few months may be difficult financially, but the next year has lots of financial growth. She mentioned how I already know my soul mate and we’ll have a long happy relationship. (Perhaps reading into the Elizabeth Gilbert version of soul mates was a bit cynical). She didn’t say a lot about our future in regards to children (not that we’re thinking about any anytime soon) but she did say that I was being held back from growth and needed to find a way to grow but was definitely on the right track.
I definitely agree regarding the being held back from growth. I hope that’s not the case much longer down here in Maryland but I’m not pursuing those until I get settled in down here for good.
I don’t usually believe psychics. I’ve never seen one but I always believed they were kind of hokey and/or a ripoff. I don’t know why this felt different, maybe hearing everyone else’s experiences with her prior to mine (and following) and how close they were to the truth/knew what they were going through, gives me a slight glimmer of hope. And maybe, just maybe, even if she was/is right, maybe this is what I needed to hear to reaffirm our decisions recently.
Do you believe in psychics? Would you ever visit one?
