I’m almost at the end of Whispers at Moonrise and Kylie finds herself wondering if we really have soul mates in this life? Is there one person you were meant to find and spend your life with in this world? Or are we capable of connecting with several someones that we find during our lives. Yes, she’s trying to decide if Lucas or if Derek is her soul mate.
As a writer and reader, the premise of soul mates is found in so many literary works. There’s something romantic in the idea of being on a journey in which our main goal is to find that one perfect person. Ahh, is that really real? I have to tell you that I’m not completely sure I believe it, I’m not completely sure I don’t believe.
When I look at all the little things that had to happen for my husband and I to find each other in the world, it’s makes me wonder if Fate didn’t have a hand in it.
You see, he was from Texas, I was from Alabama. When bad economical times hit in Texas, he applied for jobs all over the US. He had offers in several different states. The one he took was in California. When he moved there, of all the apartments he could have chosen to rent, he picked one in the complex where my mom lived. Because she had a southern accent, similar to his Texas drawl, he met her one day out by the pool. And when I found myself needing to start my life over, I moved to California.
So many things had to have been lined up for us to meet. Is that not Fate?
But the thing about soul mates, and finding them, is that sometimes it seems our hearts tell us this one person is it, and then later down the road in life, it seems to be evident that they weren’t the person. Both my hubby and I had thought we’d found the right person before we found each other. To be honest, as a teen, I thought numerous guys were my soul mates.
Maybe they weren’t so much my soul mates, maybe they were simply stepping stones, learning tools, to help me grow into the person I am, and the person I needed to be when I did meet my hubby.
Yup, the idea of soul mates really does intrigue me–almost as much as it intrigues Kylie. So what about you, do you believe in soul mates?
