What is a Kindred Soul/Spirit?
Here is the defintion:
Also known as a kindred soul, a kindred spirit is one who shares
certain beliefs, values, or interests with another person. For example,
if two people say they are kindred spirits, it means they have certain
similarities. By the definition of the words that make up the saying,
the two people have a likeness that forms a relationship or association
between them. Other factors, such as similarities in age and gender, can
help make a kindred spirit relationship stronger, but they don’t have
to exist for two or more people to be kindred souls. Likewise, a kindred
spirit relationship isn’t limited to one between two people, and can
exist among larger entities like groups and organizations.
Do you have someone/group of people in your life that fits that description? Are they your online friends or people you see frequently? Would you say that person is your spouse or other half? I have been giving this some serious thought because I think it is really important to have someone in your life that shares that creative side of you. Someone that encourages you to step outside the box, move beyond your normal range of things and is doing the same thing. Have you done anything crazy creative lately (something you have seen on Pinterest or another blog) and thought, "I would love to do that"?
Because of blogging for 6 years, Flicker, Pinterest, Yahoo Groups, online classes and so many other sources, I have found some Creative Kindered Spirits, some of them I do not know very well but still think -wow I could really hang out with them!
I hope you have found some wonderful friends/group that you feel that way about because it is just so important to your creative soul.
Have an amazing day!
