Oooh, I'm so excited about doing the Tresure Map again next year!!!
So, this year was my first year doing it, and so far a lot of the stuff has worked out-- gosh, where to even start!
So, up in the top right corner is a picture of my dream house, and we're not going to buy a house this year, but we did decide what our path for home ownership will be and I even found some houses and/or house plans online that look exactly like the house on my map! Still haven't decided exactly what road to take in that area . . .
To the left of that was a picture of food storage and emergency supplies. In our church we are asked to store a year's supply of food and water and other things that would be needed in an emergency. We didn't have any food storage, and it's been a goal to get that stored up. Well, now we have a really, really good start on our food storage! I feel really good about that now.
Underneath that I have some pictures of delicious-looking, healthy food and the words "slim" and "incredibly healthy". Well, I found out I had celiac disease, so I started this new diet (SCD) and also I lost like 25-30 pounds and got down to my pre-pregnancy size of 105 lbs size 2! So that part came true and the "incredibly healthy" is coming true-- I'm feeling better than ever! That was huge.
In the middle of my map I had a flattering picture of myself and the words "beautiful" and "radiance" and I do feel beautiful again!! Yay!
In the bottom left corner, I had pictures of "girlfriends" and the phrase "girl talk" because I didn't really have any friends in this area and I was feeling lonely-- well, now I know several other moms and I've been to a couple of groups that meet in the area and when I get another car (
) I'll actually be able to attend them again!
But I feel much more connected and less isolated now.
Next to that was a picture of a packed wardrobe, bcause I didn't have hardly any good clothes at all at the time-- now I have some great clothes and the prospect of more soon!
Above that are two little blonde boys who look happy, healthy, and smiling. I was especially thinking of one of my sons here, who was having health problems. Well, he's been on the same diet as me-- SCD-- and he is ALL BETTER!!!! I am so excited and happy about that! If that was all that came true on my map, that would have been worth it!
And above that I had several relationship pictures-- a picture of a couple dancing under the moon, a picture of a couple happily cooking together, the phrases/words "in a new light" "teamwork" "sexy" and "happy heart". Well, our relationship has been very romantic, and sexy, and "teamwork-y"! Basically it's been really, really, wonderful.
So all in all I feel like my Treasure Map has been a huge success.
Just thought I'd share!!!
