You really should probably be editing. Or exercising. Or cleaning. Or doing any other handful of things other that what you are doing, but hey, you're tired so why not just run with it. Or rather, with as tired as you are, just stagger with it. ;-)
There aren't really many parallels between Craig's List and Pinterest.
One induces stress with the number of things you could potentially look at and spend your money on. Even when that thing is only a car. But a car that needs to have a V6 engine. 4 wheel drive. Cloth seats. Good mileage. Not too many miles. Not too old. Doesn't cost too much. Ahhhhh! It can be enough to send a non-car-shopper kind of girl run screaming from the room.
The other beckons with relaxation. Laughter. Inspiration. Good food. Soul searching. Comfort. Time to waste simply scrolling through delightful pictures and crafts far too crafty for me to attempt putting my non-crafty self into.
Ever have one of those nights that the place you're in is suddenly not really where you want to be? That cloistering feeling filling your chest and bursting to be released? And all it feels like is you're spinning tires you don't have in mud that is a mile deep? All you need is that push to get you un-stuck and rolling down the freeway.
It can be hard to accept where you're at, when you want to be someplace else. It's hard to be willing to be patient and yet also know when it's time to take that leap of faith. (If anyone has the keys to this answer, I wouldn't complain if you unlocked my jammed door. ;-)
Growing up is never always easy. Ha! Wouldn't that be nice if it was?! Celebrating a birthday earlier this week was awesome and fun--I think I stood a little bit taller in 22 than 21. ;-) But life isn't all Pinterest pleasures. It's more Craig's List frustrations. Of learning to be patient and wait for that right deal. Of being choosy and making the right choices.
Life isn't all impulsive doing just for the sake of doing and taking everything that strikes your fancy.
We all get a little bit of Pinterest and Craig's List in our lives. And then we get those moments that are pure God-gifts. Moments when we face heaven and say, "yep, this, this, makes it all worth it.".
I guess tonight, even in my heavy-lidded tiredness and yawns-a-second, I had a lesson to learn. Who'd have thought car shopping and quote-and-brownie browsing would have taught me anything??
