The sink has dirty dishes, socks are waiting to be matched and there are small cars and trains in every corner of the house including my make-up drawer.
Fair enough to say my house is not close to being pinterest worthy right now. Many walls are still bare after living in the house for 4 years and not much furniture has been rearranged since the initial set-up.
As quickly as the hours go by and the days come and go I am realizing more and more it’s okay to also let a few things go unfinished for the time being.
I love things to be in order and picked up. I also know that it helps me function better when they are. At the same time I am learning how to be content when the dishes stay dirty and my home decor is mediocre.
With so much social media, instagram and pinterest it seems so easy to compare and find yourself unsettled. Easy to get wrapped up in the materialistic, what your house doesn’t look like and what you don’t have.
Don’t get me wrong I enjoy looking at pictures of beautiful things and pinning them nonetheless. It’s learning to find a balance and not lose peace because my project and idea list never seems to get any shorter.
Maybe someday I will get the gallery wall put together or the wallpaper up, by then the trend will probably have passed. For today I will thank God for what I do have and remember that it’s a house we live in and not a staged picture to adore.
If you come for a visit I promise my best to make it look welcoming and perhaps a bit more tidy. I may even make one of those yummy desserts I have pinned, but be forewarned it will be the first time it entered my oven!
