Two Human Beings in a Marriage:

We Rise Above
"Your greatest power is the power to be. To be more courageous. To be more loving. To be more courageous. To be more joyous. To be more friendly. To be more sensitive. To be more aware. To be more forgiving. To be more tolerant. To be more humble. To be more patient. To be more helpful. To be a greater human being." — Norman Vincent Peale
Any wonder why we are Human beings, not human "beens," nor Human "dones," but human beings? For as long as there is life in us, there is no telling what we will become. What is in front of us eclipse all that is behind us. We are evolving beings, continuously happening, organic living creatures. There is no checkmating, there are no hopeless situations or circumstances with us. Why?

The power of being (to be) is causing us to continuously grow and evolve in ways that ups (surpasses) our environment, circumstances, or anything at all that stand in our way. We are limitless, for as long as we do not put a period where our creator has only left a comma. Our power resides between our two ears. It is our leverage in this life, creating for us a new and audaciously big future at the rate of 60 minutes an hour.

There is nothing like an irreconcilable difference in your path. In my native dialect, we say, "ọgbọ́n kin tan ni ile aye ka lọ wa ni ọrun" (meaning: wisdom does not get exhausted on earth that we have to go look for it in heaven). And, also, we would say, "ohun ti ko le sọrọ ko le gbọn ju eniyan lo." (meaning: that which cannot speak cannot be wiser than a human being.)

There is nothing you are facing in your marriage; there is nothing you will face that will ever be bigger than you. If any ever seems so, refuse to be moved. It is mere harassment. Give it the time it will melt away. There is always a way through the wilderness if only you are willing to find it. It sure accentuates when you have a partner who will do the work with you. That is just heaven.
