In celebration of Valentine’s Day, a compilation on thoughts about love — the idea of soulmates and beautiful quotations, a moving talk on vulnerability and loving wholeheartedly, diamond rings and romantic underthings and more …
“People think a soulmate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants, but it isn’t true. A true soulmate 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 soulmate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. Soulmates reveal another layer of yourself to you. Their purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego, show you your obstacles and addictions. Soulmates make you transform. They break your heart open so new light can get in.” –Elisabeth Gilbert
Why You Probably Sleep Better With Another Person In Bed
First, you have to contend with the ‘dead arm’ mid hug debacle, test out whether they’re a spooner or a ‘don’t touch me’ kind of individual, then find out whether your other half is a warm-blooded sheet lover or an ‘always cold’ duvet snuggler.
However, after a while, it appears your bodies slowly start to learn each other’s sleeping habits; you acclimatise to a partner’s early morning rising, their preferred lighting and temperature, and sleeping positions that are affectionate but not disruptive to a deep sleep.
So much so, that it soon becomes hard to imagine a night’s sleep without your partner, which is something a new study titled ‘It’s More Than Sex’ claims isn’t as soppy as it may sound.

“The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.” ―Warsan Shire
