I’ve been active on Pinterest for quite some time now. So, I’ve accumulated boards, pins, and likes. Looking through it all now does not give the the sense of satisfaction that a collector might feel while looking at their collection. I feel bummed! Sure, I get a sense of satisfaction as I electronically hoard my hopes and dreams, but that’s about it.
Most boards are filled with things that I have found around in internet. Usually hings I love. And usually things that I cannot have (at least not at this point in my life). I can’t get that fabulous gourmet kitchen– I’m not there yet. I can’t afford those hip clothes. I do appreciate that funny animal pun (see below), but what good does that do me?
The one board that always makes me happy is my wedding board. I love looking at it. Even though I won’t have most of those things in my actual wedding, it gives me inspiration. As I look at those ideas (some I might have pinned even before I was engaged), I can picture how my big day will develop.
So, hopefully my internet hoarding will pay off. After the wedding, I will need to look back and see what pins I actually utilized. That might be interesting. Regardless of how much pinning I do, I know that my hopes and dreams will come true. I am marrying my best friend, we have great families, and a wonderful life (but I’ll keep pinning).
