Can I live there for the rest of my life?
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 mate’s 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…

Ok, so for all you guys across that big puddle, this is what growing up in the UK was like for all of us over here during the 70’s and 80’s. And for all you Tumblies who grew up here, just see how many of these you remember and back me up on just how accurate this is.
I suddenly feel like a kid again!!
UK? US? Does it really matter? I can still recall more than half of this stuff. =]
