When David and I got married, I put an inscription inside his wedding ring. It said: “Welcome to heaven.”
Cause that’s what I thought.
That it would be heaven. For him. For me. For us. I also thought it was supposed to be…heaven, I mean.
I was wrong on all counts.
This isn’t heaven. And it isn’t supposed to be.
This is earth. And earth it’s supposed to be 50/50.
Life is 50/50. Marriage is 50/50. Parenting is 50/50. We are 50/50. It’s 50% amazing. And 50% difficult. And it’s supposed to be. It’s that way by divine design.
It’s not hard half the time because we’re doing it wrong or because we don’t love each other. But because that’s how earth life was designed.
And that perfect design, allows us to choose. While we’re here in this 50/50 world, to feel love and to feel joy we have to choose it on purpose by the way we think. It’s not automatic and it’s not supposed to be.
Earth was designed to be 50/50 so that we’d have lots of practice choosing heaven, especially when it’s hard as heck.
It’s not heaven.
And for eternal beings who came to earth to learn, it’s kinda perfect.
Your life is not supposed to be perfect. It’s supposed to be the perfect place to learn. And the best thing you can learn is how to manage your own brain so you can create the feelings, the thoughts, and the life experiences you want. This is what you came to earth to learn and I think coaching is the best way to do it! If you want to join my group coaching program, our first session starts April 1st. You can learn more and schedule a call here.
