You should have a place of rest. A place that simply by being in it brings calm. A place that brings peace. You probably have one even if you don’t recognize it. Where do you spend most of your ME time? Time that is not dictated to by anyone other than you.
For me that place is my craft room/office/studio. It just gives me joy to create. I told my husband that he should ask me to come out if he feels neglected because I loose all track of time here in my secret garden.
If you could see my studio/craft/office place you would find it messy. I tend to like this room messy. I’m more creative when it is messy. Hubby does not get that “Why are bits of paper always on the floor?” I have an answer too but I don’t share it with him. I have less time to be in my craft-office-studio place than I’d like. And I don’t want to spend the time I do have cleaning. My friend who is into personality typing says if my P personality. Whatever even when I go all out and clean it and take an oath to keep it that way it never lasts more than a week. I’m not a neat crafter. I was watching a ustream last night and the woman put everything away after she used it. I sure wish God had made me that way.
Alas He didn’t and people have been trying to make me “neat” my whole life. My mom and my 3 sisters were/are all neat nicks (name given by non neat people to you neat people). I craft with a woman who says after each project we make “We have to Keep Our Work Spaces Clean” and then we sweep away the debris. Left on my own the whole night’s debris would be there the next morning, ha ha. I adapt to other’s rules when I play in a group.
But In my OWN place I can be me
and leave debris,
for all to see,
So where your place?
In the Hands of the Creator
