What comes to mind when you hear “soulmate”? When someone talks about their soulmate, my first thought would be they are referring to a person. Until about a year ago, I wouldn’t have thought a soulmate could describe anything else. Now I realize that is just simply not true.
To make sure we are on the same page about what a soulmate is, check out this really “official” definition from Urban Dictionary:
A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet — a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soulmate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them. And when you are not around them, you are all that much more aware of the harshness of life, and how bonding with another person in this way is the most significant and satisfying thing you will experience in your lifetime. You are also all that much aware of the beauty in life, because you have been given a great gift and will always be thankful.
If I told you I had a soulmate workout program, would you believe me? Change the context above from a person to a workout and this describes my feelings about PiYo. Prior to trying PiYo, I had never stuck to any sort of regular workout routine, was stressed, and aware of the harshness of life. Enter PiYo into my life and I began to look forward to my daily workout and it connects with me in both mind and body.
Finding a soulmate workout is not that much different than finding your soulmate. Sometimes it takes meeting multiple people (or in this case trying different workout styles) and the right situation for the relationship to click. I often wonder if I had met my husband when we were both in high school instead of college if we would have ended up as soulmates. Maybe there is more truth to this connection than I originally thought. Prior to meeting my husband, boyfriends didn’t last for more than two months. Prior to trying PiYo, workout routines didn’t last for more than a few months. Everyone is different –
some enjoy lots of cardio, others enjoy working out with weights, maybe Yoga is more your style. I encourage you to keep trying to find your soulmate, don’t give up just because one or two relationships didn’t work out for you.
