“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…”
— Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)
Today, I share with you this quote.
In a little more than a week, I plan to meet my soul mate, maybe several. I will trek to Atlanta to attend HRevolution where I am sure of only one thing: I WILL have some life altering conversations. I will peel back the outer shell and revisit why and how and what. I will question some of my beliefs. I will get some of the clarity I seek.
I will not get answers, but what I will get are new questions and ways to think about the issues I face daily.
Who will be your soul mate, if even for a moment?
