I've been reading The Desire Map, and kind of taking it slow, trying to really dig deep and do some soul searching. Desire Mapping is a holistic, life planning tool that helps spur our thinking about our “core desired feelings” and how to use them to start creating some “goals with soul.” I've been thinking and adding to my list when I ask myself "What I Desire..." Keep in mind
- Desire is the engine of creation
- It infuses us with the courage to do the most noble acts
- Steers our pleasure
- It is the root of our divine impulse to evolve
- Desire leads the way home
What I desire: I desire to be present with my family, to spend the rest of my days with my husband (laughing hand in hand), to paint, to scrapbook, to keep creating, to visit a winery, to travel with my husband (France, Italy, Germany, or even Oregon), read more books, to encourage and steer my children to the right direction, get more tattoos, do charity work/find a way to give back, go to more art museums (MOMA), master kerning, learn the programs, speak another language, try new recipes, write more, challenge myself physically, to work hard but play harder. What do you desire in this life?
