This is the only time I'll have by myself to work on this & we're going campering tomorrow. I may have to let the images set for a little bit and go back to the words I wrote down when I first started this map and do something different this year.
Maybe I need to focus more on being decisive? I am always going back & forth on this issue, it's crazy making. That it's consuming my whole treasure map experience says so much about what it's doing all year in my sub conscious.
I am feeling the same way about "career"...and about "home". I stay in a joint family which has its pros and cons like privacy issues etc. After an "issue" or "argument" I've always impulsively asked to move out, but I feel more "protected" and "Safe" with them especially with my 3 year old. However, I do want to let go off this fear of not being able to survive well without them.
Same with career, I am torn, because I want a career and financial freedom but I don't want to compromise my time with my daughter. I also don't know which way I want to go and am unable to narrow my career avenues (from running a mums group, to being a holistic health coach to becoming a mother again, to going back to business IT analysis -- I am all over the place with this one)
Like 'Maiasaura' said, maybe this year I need to "focus and just do it" needs to be my mantra, unless I want to do it all.
I think a lot of my wants are around letting go of fear, so I need to put in a lot of "faith", "courage" and "believe" in every area of my map.
Somehow, I feel very greedy initially when I start my TM and that feels wrong. This year though, I want to ask for what I really want, not what I think I should want and everything under the sun.
that being said, I am still having a hard time coming up with pictures/etc to articulate my needs/wants for money and creativity
Question: My daughter is only 3 but I want to include her on my map, somehow, my creativity/children section is getting full with images of things that I want FOR my daughter like ballet/music/performing arts etc. Does this sound right? and is it O.K. to include wants for her on my map? I guess I am trying to express my creativity through her?
Anyway, many blessings to all who are trying to figure it outt!
