Normally I would not show a picture of such a messy room. I’d like to perpetuate the myth that I’ve actually got my act together. Unfortunately, the reality is that I am always running “a day late and a dollar short.”
No matter how much I try to keep the piles of stuff from taking over, they are always there. The best that I’ve been able to accomplish is having neater piles of stuff as opposed to huge, jumbled stacks.
I keep telling myself that I would be able to get so much more done if only I was better organized. Sometimes I really buckle down and sort through all the many “treasures”. And you know what happens?
I CAN’T FIND ANYTHING!!!
Instead of being able to create, I spend hours looking for that something that I put in the “right” place and can no longer remember where it is!!
When it was in the jumbled stack, I knew it was right there. I might have to take a few minutes to dig down to it, but it was there! Once I “organize” it, I have no clue what happened to it.
It has taken me all this time in my life to figure out that I don’t really need to be “organized”. What I really need to do is just keep having fun creating and not worry about the mess!
So, I’m going to make a valiant effort to no longer apologize for how messy my studio looks. I can create some pretty nice things in the midst of my chaos and that’s really cool.
