This month's book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo is a game changer!
I have loved all the little tidbits of advice. This one comes at the beginning of the journey, "... when you put your house in order, you put your affairs and your past in order, too." Who doesn't want an orderly life?
She gives tools for deciding what to surround yourself with: only things that spark joy. It sounds crazy, but it really works. The biggest tool so far for me, though is Permission. Permission to thank something for its service and send it on to bring someone else joy. Permission to get rid of things that don't spark joy. It's beautiful and energizing. I'm excited to go forward on this journey and continue tidying up and sparking joy in my life.
