Days 7 & 8: 31 Days to Reset Your Life – Create a Life Map & Do One Thing

Day 7: Create a Life Map

This exercise included completing pages 6-13 of the Life Mapping Workbook; inset of the 31 Days program. Each page asked you to detail your ideal life in the 7 areas we touched on earlier and gave you room to let your thoughts & desires flow freely. I tried to be as detailed as possible in each area, once the each section was detailed out, summarize the main points and that is your life map.

My Life Map:

Lifestyle & Fun

  • Live outside of the U.S. in a beautiful country – I’d like my home to be modest & surrounded by nature and near water
  • World traveler
  • Pamper myself; facials, massages, indulge in my interests more
Career & Work
  •  A creative business that allows for flexibility to travel
  • Pay increase enough to support my new lifestyle and travel habit
  • Work with children
Health & Wellness
  • Work out regularly (work up to 5 days per week)
  • Tone up
  • Continue mental health improvement
  • Regular pampering sessions “me time”
  • Eat healthier
  • Get more active
Money & Finances
  • Pay off student loans & mortgage
  • Save more – create a nice nest egg
  • Put money away for J’s college
Family & Friends
  • Keep getting stronger with my family and helping make them more independent from me
  • Find a few good friends to share some of my new lifestyle experiences
  • My son and I have a great relationship – continue to grow that stronger and stronger
Love & Romance
  • Meet my best male friend and eventually marry him
  • Spend our time traveling, laughing & connecting in all areas (emotionally, spiritually, mentally)
  • Have fun enjoying my singledom
Personal & Spiritual Growth
  • Continue gaining knowledge in areas that interest me & continue my walk with God.
Day 8: Do One Thing
I was challenged to make one step toward a specific goal I’ve identified during the challenge, either from my life map or personal mission statement. This is not to be confused with your daily to-do list. The one “thing” should meet at least one of the following:
  1. Something you’ve been procrastinating on for a long time
  2. Something that terrifies you
  3. Something that inspires me
* The “thing” should be tangible.
My thing: Scheduled a 90 minute massage for tomorrow (11/16).
This goes along with my desire to pamper myself more. As a single mother, I’ve gotten into the very bad habit of neglecting myself. I always find an excuse to put it off… well, NO MAS! LOL! It’s been 9 months since my last massage and I am thoroughly excited.
Til tomorrow…
