The Bert Show on Q100 was chatting away this morning about a new study out that claims that half of US women feel pressure to be ‘Pinterest Perfect’. That is, they actually feel pressured and anxious about the insanely high standard that Pinterest projects seem to offer.
I can’t really comment on the study itself, but I know many of my clients, particularly those with young children, seem at least aware that the pressure is there. Cupcakes aren’t good enough, now they have to be decorated with complex fondant decorations and served in a DIY custom cupcake ‘tree’.
Sound familiar? I think we’d have to have 100 hours in a day, with an unlimited budget to live a Pinterest life. We’re busy enough. We’re good enough.
Use the time you have wisely, and be the best YOU you can be.
