Soul mates

Happy LUUUURVE day!!! 
My day got off to a very productive start with some BoxFIT at my gym. My hands are a bit shaky now tho.. I have a feeling I'm going to be feeling some DOMS tomorrow (Delayed Onset of Muscular Soreness!!)
the fuel for my workout : a sesame bagel w. garlic n herb light cream cheese

I sauteed some spinach and mushrooms
threw in some cold pre-cooked chicken tikka pieces
I placed a few tablespoons of quinoa in my wholewheat tortillas, topped with chicken/veggie mixture and a swirlin of siracha
Wrapped up nicely :)

I finished Eat, Love, Pray yesterday. Once I started, I really couldn't put it down. I found the author's spiritual journey to be so authentic and her love musings heartbreakingly relatable. Definitely on my must read list. I also couln't help myself; I bought the movie today even though I've already seen it two times :-D I'm such a sucker.
"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..."
