Soulmates (stole this one from my friend Kim)

18 Oct

from eat pray love.

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’s 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 they leave. and thank God for it.

    I enjoyed “eat pray love” and have revisited Ubud through new eyes, but my main memory from this book is the above quote, the most perfect description of a soul mate ever. I am glad I read the book just for the description of a soul mate, so complete. Thank you.

    Clare – I haven’t actually read the book, but my friend Kim insists that it’s a must read. It’s on the list of books to read soon. Thanks for stopping by.
