As a three-type, I'm the sort of person who, my whole life, has been motivated by varying degrees of desire to succeed, to be praised, and to be valued by others.
The healthiest three is the sort of person who is able to let go of her attachment to praise and valuing from others and to draw motivation for her actions from her heart's deepest desire. The healthiest three is one who is motivated not by the joys accessible outside herself, but by the joys accessible within herself.
Yesterday, April 2, 2014--on an otherwise ordinary, unremarkable day--my heart blossomed, and I beheld my life's calling without fear or doubt. My motivations having to do with pleasing others were supplanted by the desire to serve my God in the place of my own deepest joy.
I'm Kate. I'm a three. And as of yesterday, I am free from the bondage of outside affirmation. I am directed from within myself. I am free to be who I am called to be in the eternal now, no holding back.
What will my life look like from this day forward? What will I be compelled to do and say and be for the sake of God and neighbor that I would have hesitated to do and say and be before?
