A note on perseverance and inspirational sayings...

Here's the thing...I've gotten addicted to Pinterest

And one of the most popular things about Pinterest is the sayings, the posters, the inspirational signs and notes and what-nots.  I have a board dedicated to the lovely ones that catch my eye.  

But the thing that has me conflicted is that I think some of them are a buncha crap.  Sorry for the lack of discretion...

With the situation I'm in (looking for work and feeling like I'm spinning my wheels and twiddling my thumbs waiting for people to call me back.. and side rant... anyone applied for jobs lately?! It sucks because so often, you apply through an online form and never even know if it got to the right place!  grrrrrr...) and living in a cramped apartment with three dogs that have a yard the size of a putting green to do their business in (actually, a putting green is probably bigger).  I'm really trying to stay positive, but it's hard to dream big or move the mountains if they're in your way when you're spending time waiting on someone else to JUST CALL ME BACK! 

I think everyone has their own version of inspiration and mine centers around humor and reminding me not to take myself too seriously.

So instead of turning to the internets for advice on how to make the impossible possible or some other one- liner of crap, I turn there for a laugh.

Some of the things on my Pinterest board that I use for encouragement include:

And this one, which is the closest thing to inspirational IMO.

After all, in my little world, the most inspiring thing I have going for me is a Hubs that appreciates me, prays for me and who wakes me up each morning (as he's going to work and I'm staying in bed for another two hours because I have nothing to do) with a kiss and says, "good luck today, honey."

And that is the most inspiration I need, just someone to believe in me. 

(blogger's note: after writing this post and scheduling it for a few days later, I got a job offer!  Pending a drug test and background check, I'll be starting a new job in the middle of July!  Now, if I can just stay clean... ha ha! - that's funny because anyone who knows me IRL knows that's far from a problem)  


  1. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Can't wait to hear all about it and I loved the humor.

  2. YEAH! A job offer is awesome news! Love the inspirational quotes, especially the first one on the tennis shoe. The one about flying also made me laugh! Good luck!

  3. Yeah! (I'm addicted to Pinterest too...) Congrats on the job offer.
