Until I met Andrew I had never really believed in soul mates. Well, actually that’s not technically fair – before I met Andrew I’d never really thought about soul mates. But now I give it a fair bit of thought.
There are so many ways that Andrew and I may never have met. Ever seen the film Sliding Doors – I think about those kinds of scenarios a lot. What if I’d never taken the call from the recruitment consultant that got me that job? What if he’d never gone to live in the States and missed his family so much that it made him move back to my home town?
The what ifs are endless. But then again, I wonder if they even matter. I often find myself convinced that we would have met all along anyway. If not at work, then in some other capacity. I had after all applied for university at the same city he lived for years; I had applied for a job at the place his sister works. Maybe, just maybe, fate had a plan for us all along, and we would have found our way to each other. Somehow.
And so leads me back to soul mates…
Never had I imagined I would find someone who was so in tune with me, who thought as I think, who understands me with no explanation. Andy has from day one just ‘got me’. We slipped comfortably into each others lives so seamlessly it were as if this was always where we were meant to be. Perhaps it was…
“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same”
