best possible place.

'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 they leave.  
And thank God for it.  
Your problem is, you just can’t let this one go.  It’s over.  
David’s purpose was to shake you up, 
drive you out of that marriage that you needed to leave, 
tear apart your ego a little bit, 
show you your obstacles and addictions, 
break your heart open so new light could get in, 
make you so desperate and out of control you had to transform your life...

Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving.  
You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, 
but your life was changing and you were in the best possible place in the world for it-in a beautiful place of worship, surrounded by grace.  
Take this time, every minute of it.  
Let things work themselves out here...' 
-eat, pray, love
