Thoughtful Thursday- who are you and what do you want?

Who are you? Do you really know? I don’t. I thought I did. But I have no clue. Reading The Map by Boni Lonnsburry you are left knowing more about who you thought you were and less about who you really are. Deep deep in the recesses of your brain where you core and basic beliefs are you will find something you thought was a strong belief. Once thought about you will soon realize you only felt so strongly because you were taught this by your parents, a teacher, society or a loved one, for example. There is not a question/ answer section. Do you believe in Santa Claus? Yes or No. What I’m talking about is the way we see ourselves. The little voice in our head that might be a constant cheer leader or negative voice. It could be the way we see people around us– allies or enemies. Maybe a core belief would be all kids must be seen and not heard. Another might be, all men/ women cheat. These beliefs create our reality. They ARE WHO WE ARE!

Interesting stuff.

Next question. What do you want? The Map by Boni Lonnsburry explains it simply. If you don’t know what you want you surely know what you don’t want. I know I want to be financially secure and have a healthy family. Beyond that everything else seemed too much to ask for. Boni explains its out there for us. We just have to want it. So what did I want? I want a beautiful home on the water that suits our families lifestyle and is paid for. I want a new luxury car that seats all 6 of our family members, isn’t a gas guzzler and is paid off. I kept making my list.

Do you think you can figure out who you are and what you want? If you can, the next step is to make intentions. Make a plan of action. Make it happen. The universe will respond.


Work on finding out who you are. Listen to your inner voice. Change your beliefs if necessary. Sometimes we have negativity running through us we didn’t know we had, I definitely did.

Figure out what you want. Write it down. Make it real. Watch what happens. Read your intentions daily. Belief them. Don’t let negativity get in the way. Believe them. Good things will happen!
