Are creative people messy housekeepers?
Before I was involved in woodworking, gardening, crafts, home improvement projects and writing, I kept an immaculate house. There wasn't one room or area that I needed to close a door or declare off limits. Nowadays, cleaning seems to have taken a back seat to my other endeavors. Is it just me or are others in the same predicament? Have I mixed up my priorities or have they simply changed with age and what seems more important?
Boy, you can say that again. It starts with my mother, me second and then several friends of mine. "Messy" would be an example classic British euphemism. They're a complete nuclear holocaust!
pagesvoice......A genuine "immaculate housekeeper" does not have his/her title ripped away simply because a little mess appears now and then.
I have always believed that people who enter your home to "look around" and critisize your surroundings rather than to visit with you......needn't bother to ever stop by again.
We have LIVES. Logically speaking, there are many MANY things, far more important in our life than "immaculate" surroundings.
Creative people are not intentionally messy, IMO. Engaging in numerous activities to express creativity simply leaves less time and energy for cleaning up the mess.........I say, "big deal".......It's a matter of priorities. If your hobbies and crafts give meaning and purpose to your life........you'll easily adjust to the "mess" and learn to forgive yourself for not finding a way TO DO IT ALL..
Relax.....Life is short and it should be fun and relaxing. Guess what? When you're gone.....someone will invariably clean the mess!
I love this question! Possibly. I know I am a bit messy and I will leave some housekeeping chores on the back burner, especially if I am in a very creative place. My husband says that I live on another metaphysical plane (plain?) (sp?) sometimes. Don't worry. The housekeeping will get done when you come out of your high state of creativity. Then you will want the diversion so that you can think and get back the creativity.
Theres stuff going on with you that you [know] you need to deal with. Your home is a reflection of your current state of mind. Clean = Clarity = Creativity
I don't think that they are necessarily messy, but for me my house isn't immaculate never has been. I think it is because as some that is creative I don;t worry so much about what the outside world thinks. My world is more in my imagination and thoughts and I what difference does a slightly untidy house make.
That isn't to say that creative people are slobs, just maybe that they are a little more relaxed and less worried about what the world thinks.
Honestly, I don't think so .
I am said to be a very creative person - and I think too that I am, but I am still able to keep our home neat and clean. Believe me it is not as easy as it sounds as we have 2 British shorthair cats and they are very furry . Still, I really think everyone should pay attention and keep their premises clean as according to my experiences, everyone is happier in a nice, clean home where you can relax in peace.
