Soul Mates

It took me 38 years to find my soul mate—the one I wanted to work with to make our relationship last, but it was worth the wait. Then, after his death, another eight years to find a true soulmate again. This time, although we’ll never be a couple in the conventional sense of the word, I’ve found someone exactly like the 50 percent of me no one else has ever matched so completely.

Sometimes we find parts of our soul in different people, so that somehow, in our relationships with all of them, we are completed! In these times of so many sad stories, how lucky we are to find these connections that allow us to grow new parts of our souls.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I really like this thought. It is so very true, once we find the person who so nearly fits our “ideal” we only see small pieces of them in others. I see a little of Shirley is several people but never the whole person that she meant to me.. In fact it got me to thinking, so I kluged up my own thoughts on the subject.. So sense I stole some of your thoughts I thought it was only proper that I also plagiarize the photo to go with it. Hope you do not mind~!!

    I agree Judy, each of our friends can offer us some kind of different food for our soul. It is lovely thought that all of them coalesce into a lovely big relationship soup, some playing bigger and smaller ingredients, but each vital to the end product!
