Why My Pinterest Board Describes Me

Why My Pinterest Board Describes Me

Every profile is different, but we all share similar ideas.

Pinterest is a wonderful website. It’s a place to find inspiration and just spend time browsing articles and so much more. Each person has their own Pinterest Personality. Our own plethora of boards and ideas represents what we believe in and value most. Here are a few examples of boards I have that represent me.

Quotes

A collection of sayings for any situation. Poetic words and phrases put together like art. Quotes online can put words to thoughts we never could say ourselves. Quotes can show us how to escape our situation or show us that we aren’t alone in any situation.

Fashion and Beauty

I’m a girl. I love clothing and makeup and all things fashion. I could never afford half the things on the board but they sure look pretty. I’m not sure if I could even pull off half of the outfits on the board but they look good in the pictures. Why not just appreciate the beauty?

My Dream College

Go Gators! I have wanted to go to the University of Florida since I was 10 years old. From there I began my board of gator gear and quotes. When I began my senior year of high school, I also started pinning lists of things to bring to college as well as decorations.

DIY

Do it yourself. Projects, paintings, and so many more things that’re better when you do them yourself instead of pay for them. My board consists mostly of dorm decorations and paintings. I love to spend my free time painting for my friends and family.

One Day

Every middle and high school girl has a board like this. A board full of date and wedding ideas. Beautiful dresses and ideas for pictures that we hope to experience in our future. Date ideas and anniversary gift baskets. This board is a place for relationship inspiration.

Yum Yum

Who doesn’t love food? Instagram worthy pictures of meals and drinks. Recipes for delicious desserts and meals no one could think of on their own. A place to go when you have no idea what to make for a dinner party or date.

Fitness

Workout plans and ideas for weight loss and muscle building. A perfect board for anyone wanting to be healthy and work exercise into their life. Many people don’t know how to put together a workout for specific muscle groups – this solves that problem.

Home Life

As a college student, I am so excited to move into my own apartment and eventually own my own home. While bills and responsibility can be scary, decorating is not. Throw pillows and bed sets, dishes and organizers, all have so many options to choose from.

Prayer

As a Christian, I find is essential to have a board to devote to Jesus. A board full of prayers to praise Him, Bible verses showing His grace, and daily reminders of Him. When a tough day comes and it feels like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, this board can provide inspiration.

Life of a Reporter

All of us have career aspirations. Dreams of what we are going to do for the rest of our lives. For me, I want to be a reporter. So, my career board is full of professional attire and tips on journalism careers.

Now some people have not taken to Pinterest yet. But I would definitely recommend signing up. Who knows what you will find.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

10 Ways To Start Your Days Off Right By Bringing A Little Joy And Positivity Into Your Morning

"Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song."

I'll be the first to admit, I'm not exactly what you would call a "morning person." That being said, I think it's high time I bring some joy into my mornings. I mean, life is beautiful, and by not enjoying mornings, I think I'm missing out on a potentially enjoyable part of life.

So if you want to start enjoying your mornings like me, here are ten things you might want to try doing to start your days off right.

1. Make a happy and healthy breakfast.

Giphy

Make some toast, eggs, fruit, granola, or yogurt. OR, break out the bacon and have a good time. Any of those options sound like a good morning to me.

2. Drink a fresh cup of coffee (or tea).

Giphy

For me, I don’t think anything could beat the smell of a coffee being made in the morning. So whether you’re into coffee or tea, use a nice warm drink as a way to bring a little joy into your mornings.

3. Smile when you wake up.

Giphy

Start your morning with a good old-fashioned smile. Look in the mirror, look at how wonderfully made you are, and take a moment to smile and take that in.

4. Try to stay off of social media when you first wake up.

Giphy

I know, it’s all too easy to become glued to your phone these days, BUT I think that’s a few moments of time away from it, and away from social media, can be a good way to stay positive in the mornings.

5. Journal your thoughts going into the day.

Giphy

Take a pen, pencil, and a piece of paper, and take a moment to write down your thoughts, feelings, emotions, or anything else on your mind going into a new day.

6. Put on clothes that make you feel happy.

Giphy

Put on whatever outfit makes you happy, whether that’s a cute sweater or a t-shirt. Wear something that makes you feel good.

7. Watch the sunrise.

Giphy

OK, so I know you might not be able to do this every morning, but I think that watching the sunrise is the perfect way to start any day. What could be better than taking in all of these wonderful creations?

8. If you can, sit outside and enjoy our planet.

Giphy

On that note, take some time to sit outside and enjoy the early morning and the world around you. Start your morning off with some time to really just sit back and take it all in.

9. Spend some time reading something you enjoy.

Giphy

Grab a good book, a magazine, or whatever it is you might like to read. Take some time to clear your mind, and then fill it with lots of good writing.

10. Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song.

Giphy

Arguably my favorite thing on the list, I truly can see no downside to listening to the birds chirping away in the morning. If you can, take some time to listen to nature’s sweet morning song.

Hopefully you can try one of these tactics to brighten up your morning, and in turn, maybe even brighten up your whole day. We live in a wonderful world, and I think that it's time we start to recognize that.
