Today, the Daily Prompt asks us about our messes:
What’s messier right now — your bedroom or you computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state.
Well, to be honest, this morning, that was my home office. You see, I work from home – run our business, homeschool two children and write, all from the same space. That can get chaotic, and we have been working on increasing the space from which I can work out of (new house in the Hollywood Hills, here we come!). But until then, we have to make do with the space we have.
This morning – just like every Tuesday during Fall show season, the desk is not at its finest. I would like to pretend that it would look like the following:
but reality is, that it looks more something like this:
You see, Monday evenings are not spend on cleaning. They are spend together as a family watching our favorite shows, and playing some video games. They are reserved for fun, for discussion, for moments we will remember. Because I have different goals for our family, not the goal of having a spotless home – which will happen once I can afford a maid – but the goal of togetherness, of reaching our potential, of setting and reaching our personal goals, and having a safe and warm space of connecting, that will have nothing to do with how organized my desk looked. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a neat, and clean space, but it is not the most important thing.
My family is.
