Daily Prompt: Life Line

Daily prompt: You’re on a long flight, and a palm reader sitting next to you insists she read your palm. You hesitate, but agree. What does she tell you?

“Things will get better.  You must learn to forgive yourself to let the pain and regret go. ”

I’ve had my share of palm readers, tarot readers and psychics. I have to admit, I am a believer — although not an “absolute” believer. I take all that I hear with a grain of salt. I believe that some people have a “gift”, but I take their caveat that  “the future is uncertain” rather seriously.

While I do listen, I do not hold every word I hear as the absolute truth. We ARE in control of our choices — so we can steer our future to go one way or another. Although some may believe we have a destiny to fulfill, the truth of the matter is, the direction we take towards or away from that destiny remains to be our choice.

Even in a make-believe situation I am learning to be optimistic again.  So yes, things will get better.. things ARE getting better.
