Have you ever met someone who just changes your perspective on life?
You talk to them and instantly you feel your whole body fill up with energy and inspiration. Every part of your conversation with this person feels spiritual in a sense.
Have I known this person my whole life?
These encounters happen to me often. When I travel, I tend to meet these types of people.
How wild is it that you can have a deeper conversation with someone you’ve known for less than an hour than with someone you’ve known for years?
Have I met this person in another life? I know we are here at the same time for a reason.
When these conversations come to an end, I tend to think to myself: I’ve made a new life-long friend. How are we going to keep in contact? What will our relationship develop into going forward?
Often times- nowhere. A week later and I still think about this person and our conversation.
Only recently have I realized this: Not every person you meet needs to be your life-long friend. Maybe in essence, but sometimes these one-time encounters are all they are meant to be in your life.
This has been hard for me to swallow, but it is also a beautiful realization.
How wonderful is it that life sprinkles random encounters that have the power to change our lives?
