So, I broke down and accepted my invitation to Pinterest...
I have been avoiding getting caught up in all the hoopla, but I folded.
I admit, it is quite addictive and I have already wasted an embarrassing amount of time "pinning."
The entire concept is a glorious one.
There is the love.
So, where does the hate come into this Pinterest relationship?
It really is all a dream, isn't it?
There is nothing in this world wrong with dreaming. Lord knows I am a dreamer.
The issue is taking Pinterest captive, like we should take our negative thoughts captive.
If I find myself constantly longing to have "things" that are probably in reality never going to be in my possession, then it becomes a problem.
Always wanting more.
Never being satisfied with what we have because we are always looking at things we want.
Do not get me wrong-I think Pinterest is a lovely tool and it is a blast to play with.
Building my hopes are dreams around Pinterest, however, is an issue.
So, as long as I can just have "fun" with Pinterest, I will keep my account.
But the minute I find myself being dissatisfied with the things I have and constantly wanting more...
It will be gone.
Here's to keeping my Pinteresting under control :) Now I have to be accountable to each of you!
