Soul Mates

 (image via Tumblr)
"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." Elizabeth Gilbert

I first saw this quote in the book Soul Pancake, lovely book by the way full of inspiration and challenging you to think. This quote resonated with me, because I have always thought of some people as being my soul mate, but not the person I'm supposed to be with for the long haul. I think sometimes people come into your life and they show you things about yourself that you never saw and encourages you without trying to be progressive in your life choices. And this person doesn't always have to be "The One". Hopefully, like me you have found or will eventually find your soulmate(s).
