I'm kind of like that, too...I don't want to just recycle it because...I dunno. Feels disrespectful of it somehow. Burning seems more appropriate, but I can't do that. I can (burn laws where I am) but I don't have an appropriate container or grill or something to burn it in.
I did keep the relationship part of one I made in '09...it brought my sweetie and me together and we are still, and forever, an Item

Before I got pregnant with ds3, I put on my map the words and pictures for "healthy, sticky girl". I've had 2 boys since then. We were "done" after ds3, but had an oops. While I'm thrilled ds3 & ds4 are healthy, they definitely aren't girls.
It just makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong, I guess, that what I want the most I can't seem to attract.
I know how you feel, with non-manifestation. I think sometimes it just maybe takes more than one year to get some things.
I thought I wanted ds to be a girl, and he is the only child I will ever have, but now I'm glad he's a he. I was really disappointed when the ultrasound showed a boy, but I had 4 more months of in-utero to get used to the idea and so I was happy to meet him when he was born. Now I'm really glad he is not a girl, because I am a single parent and I hear how hard it is for moms and daughters. Especially at his age (11).
But that's just my experience.
Are you framing things in the positive? Like Law of Attraction sort of things. For instance, you don't put "get out of debt" because it has the word "debt" and the Universe could attach to that word and bring you more. Instead, you'd put "financial security" or some such, said in the positive, but meaning the same thing. Make sense? It's a hard habit to get into! I started doing that when ds was little...now it drives me crazy to see "don't forget X" on signs at stores, because I see the emphasis on forgetting. I always say "remember to...", but it was a habit I had to create!
