Organizing


Today has been a day of organization!! While in the thick of the creative process I pull things out of hiding spaces...start projects...start more projects ...have completed projects...have things that need to be delivered...anyhow, in a nut shell that can get pretty darn cluttered. The one thing I have realized is that I overlook it most of the time...I just move one thing to make room for another!! Till the day comes....the day like today...when I realize that more things have been left undone than are done...and I have to question...WHY???? Why...Because it is cluttered and when it is cluttered so is my mind and I have a hard time figuring out what is what and where things are, and exactly what was I working on. I was reading a post by an artist who said they pick up their studio every night when they are ready to close up for the evening! Well, looking around my studio I just had to laugh at that, but you know if this was a work place I would clean up my desk, I would straighten and make sure I was ready before I left work for the next day. So what is it about working out of my home that makes that any different? So today was a day of organizing...sorting things, throwing things out,putting things in rows and bins and folders and getting my work space in order for tomorrow. And I am going to try to turn this around and take that strong advice and actually respect my space a little better...because I know it will serve me better in the long term. And I hate cleaning this studio!! So that is my wish for you today also....respect your work space, whether it is the kitchen table or a studio room...make it comfortable, make it a workable area, and make it reflect who you are and where you are going. Respect your space the way you would want your space to respect you!! In the long run I believe that you will produce that much more and that much better....
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Just what I needed to see this mornimg! I wanted to begin my day with something bright, cheerful, inspiring and joyful...and being ever-so grateful that I already have these within me...yippie..now I can see them around me! Your Luminous Art always hits the spot. "Organizing" is just the message I needed and wanted today...as I sit at my day-job looking to yet, "begin-again". Your message today has given me a fresh approach...realizing that this too is a part of of my life's work of art...and I like it! -- Life is good, indeed.
Joy to you this..and every day.
Cheryl
