I'm finding so much inspiration lately at a new site called Pinterest. I know, I know, who needs another site to visit? But – for me – a little less Facebook, and a lot more Pinterest is helping me find myself again. That sounds pitifully dramatic, but it's the honest truth.
On Facebook, I tend to think everything always goes so perfectly for everyone else, while my Calamity Jane (old, falling-apart van) made it home within feet of giving up, and everyday all the people in my house use half a dozen glasses each…and so the pity party is thrown.
On Pinterest, I don't think at all, really, but just click "pin it" when something looks pretty to me, or when a quote resonates with me, or when I want to remember an idea. The pins go onto my bulletin boards, where the images inspire me yet again, and where I can click to tutorials. Here are some of my pretty bulletin boards:
In other words, where Facebook depresses, Pinterest decompresses. And that is why it's worth it.
p.s. If you find yourself tempted by Pinterest, connect with me so I can follow your boards, too!
