Soul - Mate..Two entirely different words,yet bound in one quintessential meaning.. Today i got thinking, if there was anything as soulmates in the present world that we live in?
Is it true that we can only have one kindered spirit in our lifetime? The 'one' soulmate? Or is it possible to have a couple of them? My mom got talking this morning on how one should only marry somebody who 'feels' right, the one soulmate (??)who looks at you perfectly in this otherwise imperfect world. I admit it's tempting to wish for the perfect boss, the perfect relationship, or the perfect outfit. But maybe the best any of us can do is not quit, play the hand we've been dealt, and accessorize what we've got.
Why do we keep regretting a relationship that didnt work? Contemplate the reasons that it still feels unfinished? Feel 'oh i thought that person was my soulmate'...Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? What happens to the love when a relationship gets over? Does it go away too? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and sadly people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love & care about are always in your heart. And hopefully, a plane ride away.
Why cant we look within our circle of close friends & be each others soulmates, to love, guide & inspire? Why does it have to be a stranger to come & rescue you? My soulmates are my close friends who have known me over the years, my soulmate is my younger sister...There are many in my life...Or are we just confusing the idea of being in love with somebody as 'the' soulmate??
There are no right or wrong answers here. I know one thing for sure - I do believe in hearstoppingly insane colorful holding hands in the snowfall trying ice skating for the first time sharing java chip frappuccino at the airport kind of love. And if he is 'the one' like my mom says, i am sure he will find a way to become my alter ego, my smile in the darker days of life! For the soulmate tag, he's gotta try harder!
