Pinterest and I have a longstanding relationship.

I began using Pinterest many years ago at my sister’s urging. She was an early adopter of the platform and was always emailing me links to pins she’d found that she thought I might appreciate. Before long, I set up my own profile and began pinning, and we’d message back and forth on Pinterest.

A couple months ago I began journaling and was amazed at how much I enjoyed it. You have to understand, I’ve been a lifelong skeptic of journaling and its purpose. I guess every time I heard the word “journal” I thought of a thirteen-year-old girl doodling hearts and scribbling love-sick poems about the new boy she’s crushing on. Besides, journaling my thoughts on a page seemed a useless waste of time when they were already in my head.

Have you ever lost your motivation and couldn’t find it again? I mean LOST…as in completely disappeared and unretrievable. I have, and it sucks! What sucks even more is that people, even experts, can’t always tell you how to get it back. So many articles on motivation give you a list of gimmicks to try to help you move past your motivational malaise.
