In the last two years, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of living a through-me life. The highest of the four stages, to-me, by-me, for-me, and through-me. I used to live a very to-me life. I did nothing but blame and complain. It made me powerless because it put me in victim mode. I created my own prison and nothing good happened.
When you believe you are an instrument, a messenger, a conduit, when you believe something is working through you to project your gifts / story to the world, you become fearless. Because it’s no longer about you. It’s about something greater. This distance allows you to let go of things easier, to check your ego. To pull back and see your entire story and make meaning of it. It allows you to breathe. To trust. To watch instead of control. It makes you work harder. It makes you appreciate. Forgive. Gives you new eyes, ones filled with wonder instead of tainted with judgement. It’s a powerful mindset that can change your life pretty fast. Apply it to all areas of your life, including your relationships. What does it look like to live a through-me life?
Loving this guy, he is just speaking to my soul these days.
