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;
