Motivational and Inspirational Stories
Author: D Anthony, D-Rose Impressions, 03/02
my short ride to work one morning I turned on the radio
just in time to hear a listener call in to weigh in on
that morning's topic - the existence of soul mates. The
woman committed that she knew without a doubt from personal
experience that soul mates existed - because she had found
and lost hers.
her story, she told of, by chance, accompanying her sister
on a trip to the hospital to visit the brother of her
sister's boyfriend. She walked in the room to find him
in the hospital bed with his arm in a cast. Though the
only words to pass between them that day were a pair of
hi's - they were accompanied by a chill that went through
her body. Carrying the feeling that there was something
really special about this chance meeting the following
day, she was surprised to receive the word from her sister
that he was struck by her and really wanted to see her
From the first
date it was obvious that they were meant for each other.
Each kiss brought fireworks - the more time they spent
together the closer they became. After dating for a few
months, they were each convinced they had found their
match. Then they lost each other.
A few months
into the relationship her ex-boyfriend had become a problem.
After threats and an attempt at running the two of them
off the road, the ex-boyfriend had attacked her soul mate.
Fearing any additional trouble and any further harm to
the man she loved - she cut off the relationship. A few
months later, feeling terrible about what happened and
missing what she had, she contacted him to explain. His
response was that he was disappointed that she didn't
have more faith in him and his ability to handle the situation
to take care of her. They lost contact.
she met another man ten years her senior. He was a nice
guy who went out of his way to do things for her
to show her he cared. She fell in love with him, married
him and they have a beautiful daughter together.
though, in spite of loving her husband, she thinks about
her soul mate - and the closeness
the passion they
shared. The two of them have re-established contact
as friends - and both concur that things should have been
different and they should have been together. Her husband
is fully aware of the history between the two of them
and knows that if it wasn't for her commitment to their
family and him being married - she would probably go back
to him in a heartbeat.
contact she discovered that the two of them had purchased
a house on the same day - and that each of them had daughters
born on the same day of the same year.
that every time she thinks of him and the feelings they
shared together she knows that soul mates exist.
It was about
this time, as I turned into the parking lot that the morning
show host ended the call - opening the lines up for comments.
The first call in
another listener voicing the opinion
that the last lady was crazy
how could she love
how could she tell her husband
and her husband must be crazy if he knew all of this and
continued to stay with her. The other morning show personalities
chimed in that her story only further confirmed their
beliefs that soul mates could not exist.
I was with a tear in my eyes, (I'm a sucker for touching
stories) talking to the radio - "You are missing
the whole point." True fulfillment in life comes
from the believing
for something special
something that awakens your
passion. Believing in, and caring about, her story
not only awakens a part of us - it gives us so much more
to look forward to.
your story Barbara. I for one believe.
