How I did it: Finding my soul mate is not something I made a goal out of. It's one of those gifts that just arrived on my doorstep after so many years of struggling. I spent a lot of time knowing myself, and I just became true to myself. People who understand who you truly are tend to gravitate towards you in one way or another.

I took steps to get to know people deeply and it is in this constantly probing nature that I found my male version, my soul mate. It has been a very rewarding friendship for both of us because we are like mirrors of each other. :)

How I did it: I had been going out with him off and on, only now do I realise that he was always there. You can't go around looking for your soulmate, they will come naturally, when the time is right, and your time will come, have patience. you'll know who they are, even if it takes you 2 years like it did me, but eventually you will realise it. Let destiny take you like a leaf in the wind. Although, if you don't seem to like where your destiny is taking you, don't be afraid, you know you can always make your own.

It’s taken almost a decade (Lord, I’m old now), but I’ve finally found the person I’m meant to be with for the rest of my life. He is my best friend and I could not imagine life without him now. I’ve gone through tremendous heartaches, breakdowns, highs, lows, friendships, apartments, car crashes, parties, getting arrested, etc. Now I’m here in a cozy little apartment, living a comfortable and happy life with my soulmate and three furry babies. Just believe and it’ll come to you too. 2 months ago
How I did it: but I met the one person that challenges me to be the best version of myself... and who happens to be my mirror image. My best friend of two years. We've been through a lot and he's broken my heart. But I know I will never find another person that I feel the same way about. Sappy, maybe stupid and hard to explain. The missing puzzle piece of life. Read how I did it… 3 months ago
How I did it: When I made this list, I was in a workshop, and I don't think I actually thought I was going to make any of these things happen. I want to encourage people who are looking for their soulmate to focus on doing things for other people. God won't forget you.
I got married on May 19th, 2012 to the most amazing man, Alasdair. We met in January 2009 when he replaced a teacher in my school who was on maternity leave.
For the first time in my life, I am being loved the way God intended me to be loved. No one else in my entire life has ever cherished or adored me selflessly. I have been forever changed by his steadfast love, his forgiveness day after day, and how he brings out the best in me while showing me the things inside me that need to change.
And this, this is a shadow of the love that Christ has for us.
Be encouraged! If I could do it, so can you. Read how I did it… 5 months ago
