Fine Reasons to Make a Mess
Saturday, November 17, 2012
I like cleaning up, de-cluttering and keeping a pretty organized house. But sometimes the best thing is making a Big Mess. I mean a significant mess. For example, what is better than building a fort out of chair cushions with a kid and disrupting the whole living room?
I also like to empty my closet once a year, and then put it all back together. It usually takes more than a day. What a mess!
I enjoy creating havoc in the kitchen while trying a new recipe. My cookbooks all have food stains (think coffee stains; olive oil thumb prints; chocolate smudges…) on them. Until they are a little messy, they aren’t really mine.
And I like getting dirty in the garden and soaking in the tub afterwards to get rid of all the dirt ground into every part of me.
The truth is life is too short to be neat all the time; it can be fun to mess up!
