What The Future Holds

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life...The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning." ~Morrie Schwartz

Today my mom and I ventured down to Lincoln where we went to the Indian Head Resort for a psychic reading. My reader's name was Lucie, and she was a wealth of wisdom. At this moment in life, I feel so confused about exactly what to do in life. So I asked her. I mentioned how I enjoyed writing and photography, and she said they would intertwine perfectly in my life, as I apparently help inspire people. I still felt confused about what college to attend, so she instructed me to go with how I feel. When I receive my acceptance letters in the mail, she said I'll just know, and I think this makes sense for me.

She also told me I have an "old soul", meaning my spirit has been coming to this world for several lifetimes. Apparently it originates from the stars, and I have a guiding star over my head that I can communicate with for guidance. (And I can always sit under the stars at night.)

All this may sound weird, but I think it's fascinating. Meeting this psychic helped put me back on track of navigating my way through life. I know I'd love to live somewhere peaceful and in tune with myself, and Lucie suggested somewhere near Burlington, Vermont. I'd love it to be able to surround myself with nature instead of people, and live in a small house to cut back on my bills. With the money I save, I'd love to travel, photograph, write, and learn.

Simply put, in the future I want to become more in balance, involved in nature, and in myself. I want to strengthen my philosophies and develop new ones based on my interactions with people, and the world. Most of all, I'd like to be a Crazy Old Cat Lady (haha).

All in all, I don't think one truly can plan their life. At sixteen, these are my ideals of how I hope it goes. One aspect that I know shall be certain, though, will be the absence of children! Good luck to everyone else on their journeys to "the future".
