There’s a phenomenon sweeping the world: Pinterest. I, myself have been sucked into the addiction for several months now and it’s picking up speed like a coked out disco queen.

The other night while I was lost in this rabbit hole, I was noticing particular boards over and over again. By women. Boards like, “Dream Home”, “Organization” (snort), “Things I want to try” and my favorite: “Health and Fitness”.

Trust me, I have a “Dream Home” board and other things that inspire me, but I didn’t start writing today to talk about me. I want to talk about you.

Ladies. What if, after collecting all these “dreamy” images, you went out and took your life by the freakin’ balls and made it happen? You know, actually LIVED the life you were meant to have? The life you WANT to have? Here, I’ll speak your language:

But, I know you have excuses. And, no, I don’t want to hear them. I know you have kids, no time, no money, blah, blah, blah, wah, wah, wah. But, you have a choice. You can sit back and wish and hope and dream….OR, you can think to yourself,

“Damn. I want that life. And I'm going to have it.” 

I don't care if it's something like totally changing the way you eat and feed your family (do you have one of those boards?). Or if you want to actually stick to a workout program (and knock it off with pinning the sweaty tan girls with 6-pack abs. Just strive to move your god damn body). Or maybe you want to redecorate your house or have a healthy relationship (I'm talking to you, ladies that have pins of Jake Gyllenhaal and romantic make-out pictures of people you don't know).

We're not 7 years-old anymore. We actually can have all the things we write about in our diaries.

You don’t need more stuff. You don’t need more pins. You don’t need more time or more money- you just need to DECIDE. Decide, then ASK.

Where the hell would you rather be? Healthier? A better marriage? A new job? Opening up a restaurant? ANYTHING!?

Your mind is an instrument of immense power. Your heart and your body know what you want. But, your mind has the ability to start the process of getting it. Your mind also has the ability to feed you shit excuses about why you can't do it.

Again, just decide. 

So, how about, instead of sitting on your ass pinning away and dreaming, you made a board that says, “This is what I’m getting”. Make the decision, trust that it will happen and go for it? This does not have to be someone else’s life. This doesn’t have to stop at just images on you computer.

 You can have the life you want.

So, what do you want? Lemme know in the comments.
