Square Peg ● Round Hole







One of my favorite morning activities is to peruse Pinterest while I enjoy my caffeine. My level of commitment is heightened as I see ideas for recipes or perhaps a DIY project. I get jazzed and start pinning things. But, then I click on the actual recipe, for example, and read the instructions. Instantly, my level of commitment dwindles because it just sounds too hard. If it takes longer than 15 minutes, then that is a big, fat no from me. Plus, is it just me, or does anyone else think that this site sets people up for failure?

Sometimes the ideas they present on this site concern me. They act like they “know” me. Yes, the new exercises give me a boost so I don’t get bored. And, I do appreciate some options on food choices to enhance my sustainable lifestyle, but I am pretty sure that the natural remedy for hyperactivity isn’t necessary. I could go for a natural remedy for impulsive commitment making. I literally have amnesia about what that decision will entail. You know, like leaving my house and dealing with other humans. Where is my pin for that?

The funny thing is that I know that I am not alone. I am just more comfortable in my truth. Honestly, my level of commitment is admirable and then the closer the date gets, the more I rethink my decision. Look I own it. It’s cold outside. I have an unhealthy relationship with my pajamas. And, it is way too peopley. I love my friends so much that there are special occasions where I will make an appearance. I don’t want to be a recluse, but I also don’t want to be “Susie social”. It is a tough balance.

I suppose I will continue to peruse Pinterest with a resounding “good for you” for those that attempt to recreate those crazy, unrealistic pins. However, I am really hopeful that there is a site created for underachievers. That would totally be my jam.
