I am currently reading the book:
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo.
It’s a fantastic book so far!! It sounds kind of silly– am I seriously reading a book on how to clean? Isn’t it intuitive and obvious?
According to Marie Kondo, it is. Tidying is really about two concepts:
1. Do you want to keep it?
2. Where should you keep it?
It’s so freaking simple that I could’ve written a whole book on it myself, ha! What I love about her book is her personal philosophy of what it means to tidy. It made me think about all the objects I have accumulated in my life. It tells the story of each decision I made and why I made it.
Who was I when I made that decision? My belongings are so personal yet often taken for granted. How do I treat my belongings? What is my relationship with them?
Her philosophy made me realize that it is time to explore these questions and dig deep into who I was and who I am now. I will keep you dedicate another post onto the results and finding.
