Extremely long day with two edit sessions to plow through which equaled 16 hours away from home. I'm very lucky, I know, in that my work is pretty energizing. So I can't complain about anything except lack of sleep most days, being pulled in many directions every day, and a burgeoning case of irreversible high blood pressure maybe someday. I'm working on the last part. My doctor's pretty good. But it's nice when scheduling days like today when I get to take advantage of breaks (in this case during the time it took for rendering and DVD encoding). I couldn't make the machines go any faster when at my West Village publisher, so I did what anyone who wanted to clear their head would do. I went upstairs to the next floor and visited the storefront psychic.
It seemed harmless. She was advertising a sale, and where else could I find out so quickly what my future holds? There was the usual, long life line (thanks, at this point!), strong career, still figuring out love. Apparently 2013 was a tough year for me (tell me about it!) and I made some career choices that stuck (that's true!). I had past lives as a journalist, an educator and a therapist (o.k…two of those apply now). This June and July my career will be going so well I'm going to have two choices put in front of me and will have to make a big decision that will lead to even more success. August is the time when the man who has been wanting into my life will reveal himself for that happen (She's sure?…That's nice). What a packed June - August ahead. Clearly this woman has a thing for summer.
What was interesting, though, is that she did say I needed to reconnect with my spirituality. I kind of was ready to call her out there. Anyone who enjoyed and laughed their way through their reading as much as I did (did I mention I found the whole thing ridiculously amusing?) obviously exhibited some doubt in getting everything they've ever wanted. Well, I had to tell her. No one gets everything. I'm the happiest I've ever been knowing and accepting that. She tried to convince me otherwise. I had to respond, "No, really…Give your future clients the option to be happy where they are. It works! For real!" She just smiled and suggested I reconnect with God. I've never heard the God reference from a psychic. I did mention just the other day, though, that I've fallen short of my daily prayers that mainly consist of declarations of gratitude. I must never miss a day of that. Not ever.
