Day 22: Don’t live for Pinterest
Pinterest…I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. So much eye candy and inspiration…so many beautiful pictures…a great way to store ideas for later…such an easy spot to waste so much time I mean…a fun distraction when I have time I can afford to give…in and of itself, there’s nothing wrong with Pinterest. But more and more, as it’s taken hold and become so popular, I think people have become obsessed with being “pin-worthy” and how much of “my stuff” can be out there on pinterest…or sometimes even grabbing others’ stuff and setting it up so that it’s pinned from their blog…and adds to their content instead of the original owners’…or posting pretty pictures of food when the recipe really doesn’t support it.
At the end of the day, Pinterest is a tool that can be used wisely or unwisely…commit to using it wisely…don’t let it tear you down and tell you your kitchen/house/life isn’t good enough because it isn’t as pretty as all the staged pictures…real life is messy and gloriously so. Don’t compare yourself to Pinterest; don’t let it steal your joy!
