At 4:52pm I'll turn 38 years old.
I'm not where I thought I'd be at age 38.
When I was 25 I thought I'd be married with at least two children.
Having what I thought was a "normal life." My idea of normal back then were all the expectations I thought I had to put on myself in order to feel like I was doing life correctly.
But the thing I've learned in my 38 years of life is that I have ALWAYS been doing life correctly.
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Correctly for me.
Some years back I was sitting in a crowd learning about marketing and life purpose from a brilliant woman @channelyourgenius and she said something that didn't register then but makes perfect sense to me now given all the work I've done and life I've lived.
I took notes that day (thank god!) and I'd like to share them with you today.
She talked about the process our souls go through before we get to physical form.
I am going to speak from the perspective of your soul. Because what I like to imagine is your soul looking at your current lifetime saying, "OK I’m going in and I’m going to endure a whole bunch of crap. Like I’m going to get the crap beaten out of me. I’m going to get bullied. I’m going to choose these parents who either do that or want to protect me and can’t or some drama and eventually I’m going to have this realization that I am NOT a victim and then I’m going to help a bunch of other people and nobody is going to be able to tell me that they are a victim because I am going to be like OH NO you don’t know what victim is because I was there. I am the most awesome puller-outter of victim person.”

I feel like you can substitute anything here for your life's purpose and get really right with who you are and where you''ve been.
True, some days I struggle with remembering that things are perfect FOR ME but damn today, on the day I was born, it's like I never knew anything else.
