DEY: Do Everything Yourself?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
~ Mary Oliver, The Summer Day

Pinterest would have me believe that I should be doing everything myself. Quite literally, everything.

Make your own body wash from a $1 bar of soap. DIY nail polish, lip scrub, wallpaper. Dress up your power cords with this one easy trick. 10 ways to use old pennies.

I hear a whisper: If it is worth doing, it must be done by you. Every aspect of life should have a creative fingerprint mashed into it. Every.Last.Aspect. 

I ask myself:

What makes a task meaningful? What is just distraction?

What is worth my precious life?
