The Desire Map

October 3, 2013

Loved. Boho Chic. Luxurious. Faithful. ALIVE.

The words above are some powerful puppies. They are my Desire Mapping words and help to keep me in line with exactly what it is I desire and the kind of life I want to live.

Back in June, I purchased The Desire Map from Danielle Laporte. I bought it on her birthday which happened to be a pay what you can day! The moment I opened her book, I realized I would have paid the asking price, and more. It was seriously the best, most amazing and blissful book I have ever read. The word book just doesn’t give it justice either: book, workbook, inspiring and opulent piece of literature. It is full of surprises, audio, visual and so much more.

It took me months to finally find my 5 words. I knew a few of them right away but I didn’t complete the workbook and wanted to be absolutely certain of my words before I wrote to you about Danielle. The reason it took me so long to digest was not the content. The content is rich but beautiful and flows off her tongue and onto paper in ways I couldn’t ever imagine as a fellow writer. It’s the workbook: the work we need to do on ourselves and the time you need to allot and dedicate to finding YOUR desire words.


I couldn’t recommend her book any more. I honestly have run out of words and adjectives just thinking about Danielle and the work she does. Please, please, please go check her out now and buy The Desire Map!!!

You can buy the book here, and she will know that I sent you over as I’m one of her affiliates. I chose to become an affiliate because I believe in her words, I believe in her power and I believe in desire.

Go get your copy now:

Get out there, do yoga & make life SPARKLE!!

    I love Danielle LaPorte. I got the honor of hearing her speak at RHH Live.
    I have The Fire Starter Sessions on Audible. The sound of her voice is super soothing.

    Her voice is so soothing and calming.

    I’d love to know why/how you chose those words, what they mean to you. What other insights and/or revelations did you get from her book?

      Hi Nancy!! What great questions. It was a truly wonderful “book” and the workbook helps guide you to your words. She starts with the desire map book. I chose to listen to the audio on a few car rides and her voice is magical. She talks about why we need desire words as opposed to setting goals because we should set an intent to feel a particular way instead of hitting particular goals. She then helps guide you through her workbook to find YOuR words.

      Throughout the book, I felt free. I really connected with her and her words. I am felt empowered. Sarah Jenks said today in an Instagram post that she used to love to break food rules (eating ice cream when on weight watchers etc) and the moment she released the rules, she felt free & began to lose weight. It’s how I feel about the desire map. I let go of my goals and set intentions. I still have things I want to do and to-do lists & goals–but I feel they are more intentions now that I have particular words I’m connected to. Words I want to feel as often as I’m able: I WANT to feel ALIVE & embody being boho chic. It’s connected to all the goals I now set.

      Throughout the book she also included playlists, audio & other goodies and treats. When I say I would’ve paid more, I’m not kidding. I would have paid triple her asking price. It felt Part of a revolution & the beginning of something so beautiful. I’m so glad I have this book!!

      I hope that answers your question 🙂 please let me know if you have more!! Xxo
