Soul mates. That was on topic in my mind today. I am a romantic, without a doubt, but what is a soul mate?
I got to thinking about that a lot today. How do you define a soul mate and how do you know you’ve found yours? Do we have just one soul mate or do we have a few?
Is a soul mate the one who is exactly identical to who you are?
Or is a soul mate more of a yin and yang kind of thing that balances you out?
Will we just instantly connect?
Or will it be a friendship that has built over time?
Do our soul mates gravitate towards us in the hands of faith?
Or is it the person with the zodiac sign that is said to “be perfect with you”?
So many questions about soul mates, yet no real answers. As I sit here and think about it though, maybe everybody’s soul mate is different. Maybe my soul mate will be one who balances me out, because lord knows I need it. Maybe my soul mate right at this very moment is someone in my life. We never know, but wouldn’t we love to?
If we all have soul mates, what happens if we never meet them? Will our heart always yearn for something we can’t seem to put our finger on?
Maybe what a soul mate is, is just a person who strikes a match so fierce inside of us, whoever that is. It’s the one who is deeply rooted in our hearts. A soul mate isn’t just a fling, or an ordinary love, I believe. I believe a soul mate is somebody who knows you, inside and out and loves you unconditionally.
For me, personally I believe my soul mate would have to be one that loves my stubbornness, who even though I get a little fiesty, will let me run my course and then calm me down. I believe it’ll be somebody who will hold my hand, but never drag me down. I believe my soul mate will be somebody who gets my crazy, who will laugh at my love of corny jokes and cupcakes. I believe my soul mate will not try to hold me down, but instead runs just as wild beside me because I am somebody who cannot be tamed. I believe my soul mate will love and be just as passionate as I am about life, about things that strike my fancy. My soul mate will be my travel buddy, my best friend, my lover, and most importantly somebody who makes me laugh.
Then again, do we ever really, truly know who are soul mate is? Maybe it’s the person we least expected.
Do you believe in soul mates?
With all the love in my body,
