I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of a soul-mate lately. I’ve always believed that somewhere out there was someone who shared a connection with me greater then this life. My one true love.
Yes, I believe in past lives and I feel that our souls carry a connection from life to life and if you are lucky, and the connection is strong, then fate will bring you together in future lives.
The Urban Dictionary defines a soul-mate as “The one person who can always make you smile, who shares your hopes and dreams, who makes you whole.” Based on this I have been fortunate enough to have found many soul-mates, but not “The One”. No, he is still out there somewhere… hopefully in search of me too.
Further definition states “Folklore claims that when a soul descends to earth it splits in two, each half of the soul inhabiting a separate body. These two people are forever after ‘soulmates,’ and will never be complete until they find one another.” How utterly fairy tale…I can just feel the dreamy sparkles in my eyes.
So, I asked my friends on Twitter and Facebook if they believed in soul-mates and after the responses I received I am starting to think now that soul-mates can be greater then just your one true love.
According to Merriam-Webster.com a Soul-mate is defined as “a person who is perfectly suited to another in temperament”, which very well could mean best friends and such. Especially my BFFs…they’d never be able to stand me with out a similar temperament. 😀
Well, Perhaps they are the people who are most meaningful in your life. Those who take you at your best or your worst and love you unconditionally? The ones who make you laugh so hard you cry? Those who are always there for you no matter what?
All I know is I really like the idea of a soul-mate. I imagine one day mine will find me out of the blue, very random and completely unexpected… then we will ride off into the sunset.
Ok, enough of the day dreaming. Must get back to work, but I am interested to hear if anyone out there has found their soul-mate and the story that goes along with it.
Please do share!
