Every so often you meet someone, male or female, who you just seem to click with. There's not necessarily a reason behind the connection, for example you may come from completely different backgrounds, different ages etc, and yet when you talk or spend time together you feel as though you could be talking to yourself.
The reason that I bring this particular phenomenon up, is I have just returned home after spending a night out, in a cute little coffee place in Wellington with one of my closest friends. I have actually mentioned her very recently as the writer of ragtraderiches. The funny thing about our friendship is in all reality, we would probably never have become close if not forced together by work. And yet, now that we have been, it's honestly like the girl is my missing piece. We think the same, we use the same language, interested in the same things.. Admittedly she has FAR better style than I do, but I always appreciate and ADORE what she wears.
We are not the same age. We didn't go to the same school. But fate (and yes I do think there were other powers at work) for some reason or another, decided that we should meet.
Of course I am infinitely grateful for this chance meeting, and I honestly do not know how I would cope without her now. But it got me thinking: how many people are out there, of which this 'click' would just happen. Soul mates if you will. There is the argument of course that we have only one soul mate. I would beg to differ. I actually think we have many, and these people are the ones that we will spend the rest of our lives with, be in a romantic or friendship sense.
I have also been contemplating my own 'situation' as it stands at the moment (read: very VERY single) and really thinking about the sheer number of people that are out there, waiting to be discovered... Who knows, maybe another soul mate is waiting to be met!
I know that this post was a bit rambley, but what I'm really trying to get at is you will never meet anyone sat at home by yourself, or surrounded by the same people you have known for years. My challenge to myself is to break this bubble and this cycle. It has proven beneficial in the past.
Anyway my loves, it is very late here in NZ and no doubt I'll have A LOT to do tomorrow... Maybe? Either way I'm going to say goodnight, and hope you're all well,
