Insecurities about Homemaking

I love Pinterest.  That is, I love it until I hate it because I know that I can never do all that cool stuff.  Not only in decorating, cooking, and DIY, there are also how-tos for homemaking.  Menu-planning lists and shopping lists and cleaning lists.  It's all overwhelming, and I feel like a failure.

For some reason, I don't like too many lists.  I think that I feel like I am setting myself up for failure, but making a list of things that I might not get done. Same thing goes for "systems".

I think that feeling like a failure is not what God had in mind for me. Or you for that matter. I truly believe that God wants me to be happy and fulfilled in my own homemaking style, whatever that is.  I need to find what works for me and do it to the best of my ability.  He wants me to be a confident, successful homemaker, making a peaceful place for me and my family to be together.

I am still a bit jealous of all you homemakers who "have it all together", and I will read all the posts about how to do something.  But I will not allow my lack of certain talents to ruin the good thing I have going here, in my own little corner of the world.

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;  

  Eccl. 9:10


  1. Rhonda...I am so with you! I take one day and one project at a time and try real hard not to let what I see on Pinterest or read on others blogs get me down. I know I do the best I can each and every day and that is all God is asking of me.

    This was a great heart felt post. Please consider sharing it with my readers.

  2. Thank you. And I just saw this, and the linky thing is closed. But, I will share it the next link-up that you host.
