Soul Recognition

Something about him was familiar. I knew we never met before but his presence felt extremely familiar. Those bright eyes pierced me with comfort. That smile overwhelmed me with a cozy feeling.

How could you feel so familiar when our paths had never crossed before?

I was in a new city, surrounded by strange people, and everyday you stood out. I would smile, I would say hello, but for a confident person, I couldn’t summon up the courage to approach you and start a conversation.

On our last night in that interesting city I decided it was now or never. We ended up speaking for hours, and I understood how my soul got attracted to you before I knew anything about you.

You have a vibe that I haven’t been introduced to before. A personality of gold, and the more I got to know you, the more my heart¬†wanted to hold on.

My insides did not just do jumping jacks all night, they started a protest inside of me to not let you walk out of my life.

As the sun started to come up I realized this night, that felt like a chapter out of my favorite romance novel, was about to end. You would be getting on a flight back home in a few hours, and I would be getting on a flight back to my home later that day.

How can a conversation with a stranger change so much in you? A couple of hours with you changed my point of view on important aspects in my life. Days later and your voice filled with advice and knowledge rings in my head. You left a print on my soul, and I sit and wonder if I left a print on yours.




As we grow up we learn various lessons. Lessons about life, love, family and friends. Lessons about hurt, pain and death. Some lessons we learn just by observing and soaking up our daily lives, while others we learn after hitting rock bottom. A lesson, I believe, that needs to be accepted and not stopped is, change.

Change surrounds us, we breath it in every second of every day. Change is the only thing that any one should be certain of in their complicated, and uncertain life. Whether we like it or not change will mingle with our days and mix with plans. Many people look at change as a destructive force, however, when known how to handle it, change tends to be the light at the end of a tunnel, or the push someone has been waiting for.

People must learn to just let change take over. keep your hands on the wheel just direct yourself to the current of change. It may mean needing to alter goals, or certain ways in life, but the faster change is accepted and understood the easier moving on will be.

My life became clearer and less of a jigsaw puzzle when I understood that nothing lasts, and nothing stays the same.
