People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…
don’t date someone that promises you forever. date someone who acknowledges that life happens, that people change, that things may get in the way. date someone who despite knowing all of that, tries their hardest for your relationship.
Sometimes it feels like everyone has it all figured out. Then I see there are those who have absolutely nothing figured out, or those who are somewhere in between.I feel like I fall in the “somewhere-in-between” category.
I’m 20. Is this normal? But really, who defines where we are supposed to be in our twenties or thirties or forties and so on? Is there some written guideline that tells us we are supposed to be at this age and that age? Is there some map we are expected to follow?
I have never been one to want to just settle.In relationships. In friendships. In careers. I don’t want to get to be ninety-years-old and feel like I settled for a mediocre life. I want to feel like I led a truly happy life. I want to feel like I at least tried for something bigger.When I say bigger, I don’t mean a big house, an expensive car, designer shoes. Although, I do dream of my future house…and more importantly my future kitchen. I mean bigger for my soul. I want to feed my soul with a real love for life. With passions that truly mean something to me. With dreams that are only found in my heart. With happiness that comes fr moments and memories.I have expensive taste, right? As far as how I spend the rest of my life, I just know that I don’t want to settle just yet.
…for now, I’ll dream of baking,having abs, motivating others in fitness and health, and writing books.…and work towards accomplishing all of it.
