Plan - Create - Learn - Grow - Discover - Dream and Share using PINTEREST

Entering the world of Pinterest?

Watch out. Enter at your own risk. Your world may never be the same.

It's a discovery process for whatever makes you tick.
It could be anything. It may surprise you.
Interests you never knew you had suddenly stirs up excitement in a new hobby or an urge to redecorate your home, to give a new spin to what you already have or revamp your closet and come out a whole new you.

Well, here are a few words of comfort on what you can get out of pinning away and the wonderful things Pinterest can do for you.

 

So sit down, relax, and have some cookies. I promise you'll feel better after this.

Start A Collection. 

Indulge yourself in a collection of whatever piques your curious mind.

Start as many collections your creative heart wants.

Now, how often can you do this without spending a dime?
It's a win-win situation.

Go On A Treasure Hunt.

The fun of discovery and of finding little treasures along the way.

It's like going on a treasure hunt (or a garage sale, or going to the thrift store)
You never know what you're going to find.
It's almost like unwrapping a special gift.

Surround Yourself With Things You Love. 

This opens the door and invites things you love in your surroundings. It pleases your sense of style.

Hello Randomness! 

You get exposed to randomness. That's the beauty of it. You suddenly find something you're interested in that normally would have never crossed your mind. This is a workout for your creative mind and rocket fuel for your imagination.

Learn Something New. 

Pins full of tidbits of information and factoids worth learning. Handy tips and advice you can use.

Travel The World. 

It's your passport to any destinations ...Visit museums, go back in time, and enrich your world. It's quite fascinating.You can let your mind wander and get lost in another world. I call it "going on a Pinterest field trip".

Go ahead, let yourself go.
It's a maze of discoveries.
Use it to put together your dream vacation escapes.

Follow Your Interests And See Where They'll Take You. 

One pin will take you to another pin, to another pin, and so on.

You'll find like-minded soul (and pinners) and be amazed that there are other people out there just like you.
You may actually find yourself. The more you browse the more likely you'll discover what makes you tick.

On a quest to finding what excites you. 

Juggle all of your senses. It's good for your soul. The more you pin away the more likely you'll go in a trance and be more receptive to new ideas. It puts your creative thinking in high gear, which in turn puts you in a 'feel good' state of mind.

Help! I'm Pinning And I Can't Stop. 

Why oh! why is Pinterest so addictive? I don't know.

REMEMBER,

Pinterest is between you and your pins.

You can choose to share or not.

You're not asking for feedback or comments.

Who cares? They're your boards, your pins, your expressions and you can do whatever you want with them.

So you see, pinning on Pinterest is not a waste of time. It's special time you take for yourself, to exercise your creative mind and to hone your visualization technique.

There's an endless list of what you can do with Pinterest to spruce up your life, activate your creative mind, awaken your passions, bringing alive your collections and along the way having lots of fun pinning and sharing with your Pinterest buddies.

Pinterest, is an explosion of ideas, creative solutions, motivation spurts and moments of inspiration all waiting for you to grab. It's a bulletin board of possibilities. It can make you dream a better life, a better you.
