The butterflies rising quote ‘i think we find our soulmates in the places we go to find our souls’ is an excerpt from the following prose piece:
“where we are drawn and pulled. and when we are shifted and stirred. in what makes us feel. and feel alive. or feel understood, like outstretched hands and lifelines, like home. in our self-searching, where we feel soul memory. or in the inspiration touches and in what feels like free and brings us wide-lung breathing. and in our fire-catching and lightning-chasing, they meet us there with sparks. where we light-find and heart-reach or lose breath and dream wild… i think we find our soulmates in the places we go to find our souls.”

The poem and quote are both are many-layered in meaning. They are about the idea of seeking self-love and connecting to your soul first, and then love being something that is waiting for you there. And then they are also about the idea that we find connection in the things we love – that where we find light and joy or passion and inspiration, there are connections that are meant for us waiting.
