I joined Pinterest a few months back, thinking, ok… I just want to find out what all the hype is about. Well, since that time, I feel like I’ve become a Pinterest maniac. If only I spent as much time doing the things I see on Pinterest as I do pinning then, I would could have traveled the world, learned about 5 new languages, completed my CE for the next 10 years, finished about a hundred craft projects, all the while cooking 3 meals per day at home and renovating my home into my beautiful dream home. If I had the money for all those things, of course.
To be fair, I have successfully made about 5 meals from Pinterest recipes, a daily cleaning schedule inspired by a photo I saw on there, as well as detailed plans for a juice cleanse that Danny and I will probably start sometime next week (once we finish all the cinnamon rolls and cookies we have sitting around the house, of course) :/ I have a ‘board’ for each holiday, but I have yet to make any of the things I have pinned for any one of them. I recently started boards for places I’ve been and places I’d like to go. I get super excited about those ones… I browse the travel photos and pin all the places I would like to see one day. A girl can dream, right? :)
My point is, it’s a dangerous place. It makes you think you can conquer the world but at the same time provides you with so many options to do so that you never actually do any of it. I tell myself I need a new hobby… but, whether I like it or not, I think I’ve already found it. And it’s name is Pinterest.
