One thing I learned over the past few years is CREATIVES ARE NOT THE MOST TIDY PEOPLE! I’m sorry, we’re just not. That’s not to say that all creatives are just disgusting, health hazardous, slobs. But I am saying we definitely don’t have every piece of clothing, every shoe and every piece of paper perfectly organized, filed, folded and labeled 24/7.
In fact, most creatives I’ve had the honor of meeting or witness from afar, can be kind of messy at times. We have laundry that needs to be folded, our favorite pair of shoes still laying on our bedroom floor because we’re just going to put them on again in the morning. We may even have a messy bed, because inspiration hit us like a bus at 4am and we’ve been making magic for 5 hours straight and simply didn’t have time to tuck in our sheets.
Yes, cleanliness is next to Godliness but God also gave me these gifts and this sun so she’s going to have to understand on Tuesdays and Thursdays lol! But seriously..
My theory is we’re TOO BUSY CREATING DOPE SHIT to always remember to put away our shoes or tuck in our flat sheet or fold our laundry the minute it comes out of the dryer. This is one reason I find it hard to live with non creatives. This is something they don’t really understand most times. I look at it as they think on a more linear plane something like this.
While a creative’s mind, on the other hand looks a little something like this…
See the difference? Exactly. So, keep this in mind when you peek inside our bedrooms with your judgmental eyes. It may look like chaos to you, but it’s organized chaos to us. I’m willing to bet we know exactly where everything is, too! Well….at least the most important things. Lol!
