Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

There's always this discussion about whether you find your soulmate in your life. I start to question that these days, and I truthfully don't think that you do. It's hard to say you've found someone that makes your soul feel at ease when in the drop of a dime, everything can change. I tend to think we all fall for each other way too fast when it comes to relationships and we forget to realize that you NEVER know everything about a person.

There will always be a few things that you may not know about a person. I mean, I find out things about my parents that I never knew and I'm in my 30s. So if I'm still learning about my parents, what makes you think that they won't learn something new about the person they are dating or are in a relationship with?

To me, I think you find the right person that you are supposed to be with for an allotted time (however long that may be) and that's it. My reasoning behind this is, the reality of life is things change and people change (all of the time). Nothing stays the same and the one person you say is your soulmate may not be. They may be a totally different person than you think they are or maybe they like or love someone else and you may never know it.

I think life is about growth and learning from each other through a plethora of experiences. Nothing lasts forever, if it did, we would never die and this Earth would be overcrowded full of people. We all love differently and we are always in the process of learning about ourselves and what drives us, motivates us, makes us happy, and what inspires us so how can we say that we've found a soulmate in someone else when we don't even know ourselves completely?

Your soul is something sacred within the core of your being and that should be cherished and kept deep inside of you. If someone is your soulmate, that means you've given them your soul and ask that they cherish it like a gift. Your soul is not just any ol' gift, that's something serious and it's not like it's materialistic where you can use it whenever you feel like it. Saying someone is your soulmate means that they are contributing to your inner core of your existence daily and every single day. That is an impossible task to hand to someone and expect them to give you that.

The reality is you have to feed your own soul, that sacred place inside of yourself that you don't ever want to lose. If anyone should be your soulmate, it should be yourself and who you are as a person. There has to be something within you that keeps you going and driven everyday. Handing your soul to someone to give you everything you could ever want and need is an unfair deal in my eyes.

This is just my thoughts and my opinion on it, too many times I hear people say someone else is their soulmate. I don't think I'd ever be able to say that in my life because there are too many things that calm and soothe my soul without any special woman being in my life. That's just me, my soul is fine with music, sports, living life, writing these blogs, writing poetry, writing poetry books. Just something to think about when you say you've found your soulmate.
