I've really been thinking a lot about how much Pinterest is changing people's lives. I know I am on there almost every night and somewhat unknowingly have become more and more discontent because of it. Is there really any way I am going to have the rooms, houses, clothes, exotic vacations, gourmet meals and perfect body I am seeing every night while I scroll away?? NO! I'm not. Honestly, trying to measure your life, home, and kids based off of what you see on pinterest is not going to lead to a healthy, happy, contented spirit. Don't get me wrong, I have found some things on Pinterest that have helped me out. There are some yummy recipes and organizing ideas that I have taken from there and LOVED! The problem comes when we measure ourselves against what we are seeing.
I have seen "Be You tiful" popping up everywhere and I love it!! It's a great reminder that everyone is different, but being yourself is absolutely beautiful. There is no one else like you, so why would you try to be like anyone else?
I have been thinking about this a lot recently and decided that I wanted a daily reminder to just be who I am. I used etched vinyl that looks amazing on mirrors and glass but isn't permanently etched into it!
I am offering this in my etsy shop right now. It makes a beautiful addition to a bathroom or daughters room especially (sometimes boys don't like to be called beautiful ;-) ) This would also be a special gift for all of those beautiful women in your lives. This is up in my Master Bath as a daily reminder that I don't need the perfection I see in pinterest. I am unique and that is beautiful :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!
