Bless the Mess


I love other people’s mess because it makes me look neater! 
~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko

My sister just complained about a co-worker who is messy; and, how it irritated her. In reality she should be grateful because her co-worker’s mess can only make my sister appear that much better! If it were not for other people’s messes in the world, how would me learn tolerance (and look better in comparison, LOL).

Mess is good. It provides niches for many roles in society. Mess creates a need for many jobs and professions. And, it appears that a mess for one, may not be a mess for another. Mess is in the eye of the beholder.

I am thinking that this brings a whole new look at the expression, “Don’t MESS with me.” I am going to look at mess with a new eye. You may want to consider doing the same. I am not saying that you need to clean up other people’s messes; what I am saying is….look at the lesson from the mess. What is the wisdom in the mess? Can you laugh at the mess? Finding the positive in the mess would bring us that much closer to having a more loving society, right? Bless the mess.
