I hate those bloggers.
OK, I don't hate them... but I tell myself that no matter how awesome their life and house looks on that blog, they've got their own problems and I need to remember that I don't need to be like them.
I was putting an amazing amount of pressure on myself because those bloggers are so super awesome. I was exerting a ridiculous amount of energy trying to think of how I could get it all together like they did. And then I would see crumbs on the floor I just vacuumed and my youngest child with a loaded paintbrush running into oblivion to redecorate his room to his liking. And then I would have my version of a nervous breakdown, grab a pint of ice cream, and collapse into the sofa for a day or two.
Don't be like your ol' pal Prissy. Your house is great. Your blog (if you've got one) is great. You have great ideas and talent and your life is not defined by anyone else. Use those great blogs for inspiration and motivation, but don't let it make you feel like you're not good enough. Don't put pressure on yourself to be something you aren't because what you are is awesome already.
And you know what? Those dishes will wait. Go do something fun.
