Confession: this is late because I preferred to sit around the bonfire with my family last night, and then I remembered this morning, typed up a great post, and then wordpress ate it. First time that’s happened, and I’m not really pleased….
Since I live with my parents my mess is confined to my room and my car. I’m not a fan of when organization gets unruly, but it generally is at its worst when I’m packing for short trips and expect to be leaving again shortly after coming home.
The tidy, perfect, suspended animation moments are few. Sometimes they seem like the great final moment after lots of hard work.
But the work in progress messes are not failures. Especially as I go through my own work in progress with finding a new job and hopefully a place to live in the cities, I have to accept things aren’t perfect. If they were I would have started a job on June 1. Now I’m hoping to be settled by September or October 1.We will just have to wait and see how it all works out.
Do you prefer perfection? Or do you embrace the works in progress?
