A Quote

{picture}



"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. 

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."

Great quote! I found my soul mate in my best friend :) Even though we've loved and lost, she is the one to get me back into seeing the sunshine and vice versa! Hooray for soul mates!

I SO needed this (and now I'm really thinking of reading that book...)

I've been wondering so much whether my bf is the one, and this definition puts me back on track.

That has been my favorite quote ever since I read the book. So perfect and dead on.

My husband is my person... but he's NOT my soul mate :)
