Monday Musings on This ‘N That
Rain, rain, go away…… Did we have the weather across our country last week! In different places we had rain…boy, did we have rain!
Then flooding from all the rain.
In spite of all the rain, other parts of the country still had drought.
Some places had sub tropic-like temperatures.
Snow skiers were rewarded by snow on their slopes.
All that to say that last week reminded me that no place is exactly like another place and no one is exactly like someone else. And wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same? As I’m prone to say, “That’s why they make chocolate and vanilla,” since we’re not alike and have our own preferences.
And what about the saying that “opposites attract”? Do you really believe that? If so, why do you think opposites attract one another? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. I’m guessing there are examples for both.
On the flip side we hear “birds of a feather flock together.” That probably means that birds that are alike stick with their kind. Many times when at home or away, I notice that when birds congregate they usually are very similar, at least cousins in the same “family.”
Okay somewhere among the two—“opposites attract” and “birds of a feather,”—some use the term “soul mate.” Is a soul mate one who knows you better than you know yourself? Does a soul mate anticipate your every move and thought? Can a soul mate finish your every sentence? Are soul mates “opposites attract” or are they “birds of a feather”?
Do you know folks who are soul mates? Are you comfortable being around them? Are you maybe a little envious of their obvious contentment with each other? You may know folks who are soul mates and will tell you that they are. Maybe soul mates can be likened to a pair of turtle doves.
Let me hear from you on this. So, how do you define soul mate? Do you have one? Would you want one?
Till next time ... keep on smiling.
