Today, as I arrived home just a few moments ago, I loved the welcoming feeling that my home gives me. It is colorful, beautiful and it suits my needs. Today I am grateful for my wonderful home. I love everything about it and as I was looking around, I felt myself relaxing and feeling grateful for this space I live in. My home is an extension of me and my energy is reflected in it.

This got me to thinking how important it is to have a welcoming place to come home to after a long busy day.

How does your home feel to you? Is it what you need? Do you like it? Is it cluttered or does the energy flow with ease from room to room? Does it feel like a wonderful space where you can rest, recharge, think and feel at home? Or does your stress level increase when you look around because you see things in disrepair, clutter and lack of beauty?

I want you to feel at home in your own home. Beauty is important. It clears your energy, helps you relax, let go of stress and recharge.

What do you need to do in order to make your home beautiful? Choose a few things that are easy to do right away in order to make your home more welcoming to you. It will make a huge difference.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 88: Road Maps of Desires


Today is my birthday and I am celebrating…. well, I am celebrating me! I am grateful for all the experiences I’ve had in my life so far, for all the knowledge that I have accumulated and for all the levels of transformation I have gone through until today. I am grateful that I am sharing all this with you. Thank you for being here with me.

There is no greater freedom than being who you are and living your life from a place of power and inner strength. There is so much joy in defining what you truly want and then start taking the steps to make it happen.

I take time to define my new desires and aspirations every year, sometimes even on my birthday, as part of my inner celebration. Why don’t you join me?

Take five sheets of paper and title them:

  • My relationships
  • My career
  • My finances
  • My internal/spiritual life
  • My health
  • My romantic life

I call these the 5 Road Maps Of Desires. On each page write your ultimate desires; do not hold back, start writing, get more paper if you need extra pages, juts keep writing what you would like to have and experience in your life. Keep writing. You can keep changing your mind over and over and add as many details as you can picture in your mind.

I want you to keep adding things to your 5 road maps all this week. Keep your 5 road maps papers handy so that you can keep writing things down.

Write at least 25 things in each one of them. This will start to flex your imagination muscles, so to speak. When I did this exercise for the first time many years back, I realized that it was not that easy to voice what I wanted. I had no idea that I could want many things and I thought that it felt like splurging.

Do you get that? Splurging? It was just writing what I wanted on a piece of paper. I was not in the habit of being clear about what I wanted and I censored my desires even in my thoughts, as if I was not entitled to them.

If this is hard for you right now, just think about this: how are you going to create your desired life, if you cannot even envision it? Let the imagination flow, flex your dreaming muscles and start writing what you want. Start working on your road maps of desires.
