Launcher Quote: This day wasn’t anything particularly remarkable. But the house was clean!

Things had gotten to be a bit of a mess, and would get that way again. But it was still important and fulfilling to take a moment to cleanse, care and repair.

Clean up for as long as you like. <3″

I’ve been told before that I’m a bit of a neatfreak and organizer-obsessor. I try to have everything in the place that I expect it to be, and I also have a sense that I should know what projects I’m working on at all times and know what the next steps are to finish said projects. It’s entirely possible I’m looking at the to-do list for this particular project of writing on every Meditation Games entry, for example, so I’m totally on board and admit that I can be that way sometimes. But the reason I do have this level of organization and cleanliness is not just because I desire everything to be organized, but that it’s a bit therapeutic to do so, which is part of the point of this particular entry.

You’re allowed as much clean up time as you want, and you’re able to take the time to tidy up various places in the setting that you’re in and I think that even though the mess never quite goes away, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t helpful or nice to be able to do so. For me, the idea that I can take something that doesn’t quite meet the tidiness or organization standard and arrange it so it does is nice, as it gives me a sense of accomplishment even as it may seem like to some people that it’s busywork. I don’t know that I’d want to do it for forever, or if I knew tha tit ultimately meant nothing, but the fact that I can leave something better than I found it is probably part of the reason why I myself am a bit of a cleaner.
