As you grow together, looking at your future together and life dreams become important. Love mapping, that we began at the beginning of this 30-day journey, is necessary so you can come together on future goals and dreams.

For couples to share in life dreams, you will each need to know what yours are.

Furthermore, what do your dreams represent and symbolize for you? What do you want to accomplish in life? What do you want your children to say about you on your 50th wedding anniversary?

Is there something you have always wanted to do or learn? Places you’ve wanted to go or see?

What is so wonderful, is that our life dreams can be big or small. Perhaps you have always wanted to grow a garden, learn how to knit a blanket, or fly fish.

Your dreams aren’t just about the things you want to do, but they represent the person you want to become.

As you imagine your future, what is important to you and what might it symbolize… Not only as an individual, but also as a couple?

Completing a marathon, when you have always hated running, may symbolize more than accomplishing the goal. Perhaps it is more about empowering your children to learn that things are hard in life, and although we may not like it, with determination and hard work we can succeed.

Your task for today is to make a bucket list and communicate it with your partner. Further, what can you find to share together?
