I found this on Pinterest this morning and I wanted to comment on it. It seems so unusual to call someone organised ‘lazy’. Surely they contradict each other? It takes effort to get organised, thank you very much.
My house is almost obsessively organised (think labelling machines in regular use, everything categorised and regular clean-outs) and indeed I can be as lazy as the next person, plus I have a lot of stuff and I hate losing things.
But I think this really describes anyone who is creative and normal; who rides life’s ups and downs. One minute you are all organised, spending enjoyable hours getting yourself sorted and feeling all smug and the next you are off on your next tangent, things pile up and chaos reigns. It’s not that you’re lazy, far from it. On your next mission, you are super busy getting creative things done while your mind is active and flowing. You’re alive once again! The mundane such as eating, laundry and housework pile up. When you come back to earth, everything new is given its own space and you regroup. Did a tornado hit while you were ‘away’, off with the fairies in creative heaven?
You might feel you have two personalities, two sides which have to co-exist. If this is you, embrace it, enjoy it and celebrate the richness of life. Never a dull moment with an extreme creative in the house 🙂
