I love reading great quotes and I’m always posting on social media the ones that make me feel tingly in the spine. The ones make me stop and think, YES! And my brain juices simmer, encouraging my writer flow. Indeed those are the kind of quotes that truly resonate with me. I read one a few days ago that was about love, friendship and soulmates.
Here it is: “Having a soulmate is not always about love. You can find your soulmate in a friendship too.”
Firecrackers. All Truth. Swoon. Until now I’d only considered my desire for a soulmate in love. This quote altered my perspective of the label and heightened my awareness of what I already have in this life. Immediately I thought of Lekule, whose images are posted here. Ain’t he stylish? He’s my best friend and the absolute coolest person I’m honored to know. He’s super amazing and our “thick as thieves” friendship spans over 20 years. I don’t know what I would do if he were absent from my life. Maybe I’d become an alcoholic or something. Firmly, I believe he’s my soulmate in friendship because our lives have been quite parallel since the day we met. We’ve experienced great love and loss. You probably wouldn’t believe some of the stories we could tell. But I won’t go there. I know that’s teasing you so just try to forgive me and know that I have to keep some things in strict confidence. That’s what great friends do for each other, right?
We share the same sun sign, yep, Scorpio. Mmhm, everything that has been written about us in zodiac news is mostly true. Cross us and, well, our stinger erects to unleash a wrath like you’ve never felt. Lekule is the male version of me. And guess what? As long as we’ve known each other we’ve never had an argument. Shocked? Believe it. I wonder how many people can say that about their soulmates or friendships. I’m blessed to be able to say so. And I know it’s because our communication is stellar and solid. We have much in common: love for music, entertainment, and really anything related to the arts, dance (side note: we could hold our own on Dancing with the Stars), fashion and style, poetry, reading, writing.
We talk every day, sometimes for hours, but that’s only because I can be long winded. I’m a talker. He’s not and yet he listens to me until his ears are ready to fall off. We send soliloquies in text messages and when we laugh, gosh, we topple over until our guts hurt, crying from laughter about funny things. He’s my confidant, my biggest supporter in my life. He’s always been there for me no matter what. He never judges me and you know what, he can if he feels inclined to do so because I know that his heart is in the right place. He’s a beautiful man inside and out.
Get to know my soulmate in friendship. He’s a multi-creative entertainer, artist, poet, musician, and songwriter. Check out his YouTube channel The Lekool Show and follow him on Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter.
