I like things that make me smile and I surround myself with people who warm my heart. I believe in optimism and balance. I think a smile can cure everything. My blog is all about quotes and positive thoughts.

A soul mate..
When you need a little inspiration..
"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 mates 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.."
-Eat, Love, Pray (...Favorite book ever)
I find this quote just sings to me. Everyone has people who come and go from their lives. People who we thought would stick around, have a future, people we thought would make a change. But once in a while, if we're lucky...we get someone really special. They can be a friend or someone more, but it feels right, the shoe fits. They have such an impact on your life that it's impossible to look back to the way things were before they were around. It's hard, and sometimes those people leave...but they've left you with the power, idea and desire that things can be better, that you deserve amazing things and you are on control of your life.
I find this to be one of the most powerful quotes I've ever read. :) Happy Thursday night!
