I'm not an Expert...


Disregard my disgusting nails, I told you I'm not an expert...
I had a revelation the other night while I was watching the Millionaire Matchmaker and pinning my little heart out.  One of the millionaire daters was an expert chef and then I saw something on Pinterest that was talking about being an expert Fitness Guru… It made me think.  Wow, I’m not an expert at ANYTHING!

Yeah, I can do Pinterest crafts, throw together generic outfits, cook, bake, paint my nails, fix my hair, blog, the list could go on and on…. I realized that I’m good at a lot of things, but I’m not an expert at anything.

Then I started thinking, even if I did want to be an expert at something, what would that be?  What would I need to do to become an expert? I guess if the world is filled with limitless possibilities then I would pick being an expert interior designer.  Young House Love gets me inspired all the time and I would definitely consider them EXPERTS at home d├ęcor.  This is just throwing this idea out there WAYYYY out there…  I’m not an interior designer, I’m not a decorator and I know for a fact that most of you bloggies have much better design ideas than I ever will…. However, it IS something that I can strive to do better at. 

The one thing that can help me do a little better at Home Design is Pinterest

Do you consider yourself to be an expert at anything?  Is it better to be an expert at one thing or good at a lot of things? I’m still not sure, the jury is out on this one…

Really if you ask me it sounds like a lot of work to be an expert at something and wouldn’t I start lacking in other areas if I only concentrated on only one thing?

  1. I dabble in lots of things too, but I don't really think I'm an expert at anything. Hmmmm don't know if I like to admit that!

  2. I hope to be an expert in home food safety someday (random? Yes, I'm working my Masters in food safety). But I love your rings!

  3. I've always struggled with being a "Jill of all Trades and master of none". It is hard to let other hobbies or areas of interest slide if you need to concentrate on only one. I do however think that you have less chances of being properly "successful" if you do not try to concentrate on one area. This is a real case of "do as I say and not as I do" though since I'm not an expert at anything either.

  5. This is an interesting question to think about...I'm not sure I'm an expert at anything either! I mean I think I'm decent at a few things...but by no means an expert!

  6. Professionally, I'm considered an expert at what I do...which has led to MAJOR job burnout. I think that's why I strive to do so many other things: write, cook, paint, etc. And being an expert sounds kinda boring and like you don't have anything else to learn.
