I wasn't sure if posting something about last years Treasure Map in this year's thread was appropriate but I thought all Treasure Mappers would appreciate this. (hubby doesn't seem to get it)<br><br>
Last year I put two pictures of dogs on my map. They were both breeds I liked. I did not intend for it to represent two dogs. It just represented my desire for a dog. Since then we have gotten a dog. I hadn't paid much attention to the specific pictures until today. I have a picture of a Rottie puppy and an adult Dalmation. We didn't get either of those. What we got was a Catahoula. She has a near identical build to the Dalmation in the picture and the markings of the Rottie.<br><br>
Just a nifty little Treasure Map moment for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

That is so cool! I have a similar story...<br>
A few months ago I put a pic of a golden retriever lying with a kid on a treasure map I made, because I wanted one so badly, even though I knew that we needed to get a smaller dog because of our little kids and rental policy.<br>
Anyways, we ended up getting a cocker/cavalier cross that looks exactly like a miniature golden and hes so great with our kids! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yay! I put a picture of a kitty on mine because I really want one but I still live with my mom and she doesn't want to get another one (our Lila died 3 years ago)... this gives me hope!

I caught the Treasure Map thread right at the tail end, last year, but managed to throw together a very crude, quick map just the same. The main things on it were:<br><br>
1) I wanted to get married. My fiance and I had been together for nearly 6 years at that point, and just couldn't seem to get the motivation/financial requirements together. We were overwhelmed with how much work it was going to be, so we just didn't set a date.<br><br>
2) I wanted to get a permanant job. I had only worked contract positions up to that point, and was always anxious about the impending "End Date." I was just coming off of my maternity leave, and had no job to go to.<br><br>
Four months later, I was walking down the isle (well, not an isle per say....it was a wooded path. We had the wedding of our dreams out in the middle of a forest.) Four days after the wedding, I started my permanant, full-time job.<br><br>
I'm optimistic that we'll have success with this year's treasure map, as well!

This is a "successful" manifestation, but one that I wish I'd paid more attention to when making my map....<br><br>
On last years' map, the most "filled up" area for me was the center... health, etc. area... one of the "sayings" I had cut out from a magazine ad and put on there was:<br><br>
STOP SUFFERING FROM ANXIETY, GRIEF AND DEPRESSION.<br><br>
and yes, looking at it now, I'm like DUH!!!!!!!! but for some reason, last year it didn't hit me... sigh...Perhaps it was because I was so stuck in, yes, anxiety, grief and depression when I made my map.<br><br>
This year has been soooooooooooooooooooo hard for me in so many ways (though I've made major progress in others) and I couldn't figure out WHAT I was doing "wrong" until I really LOOKED at my map with fresh eyes after finishing this years' map. And at that point it stuck out like a sore thumb. It wasn't even very big, maybe three inches square... but, apparently, it packed a whallup!<br><br>
Be CAREFUL what you put on there! LOL!!! YIKES! Luckily, this year I put lots of words like "Joy" "happiness" "contentment" etc. on there instead!

Almost EVERYTHING I put on last years TM manifested.<br><br>
About half of it got manifested to my liking. The other half had a slight "but" though.<br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><br>
For example:</span><br><br>
1) I had a bellydancing picture and I *did* take lessons. <b>Until</b>... family matters prevented me from continuing.<br><br>
2) I had a picture of family on tropical vacation and we did go... <b>but</b> DH had to cut it short because he was called to perform 2 days after we arrived in our hotel<br><br>
3) I had pictures symbolizing stock market going up and I did make several successful trades in a row... <b>then</b> all the other stocks I purchased went plunging down.<br><br>
I need to analyse the "why" I guess... Not stong enough intention? Did I get "scared" midway somewhere?<br><br>
I am still thinking as you can see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
