I’ve been away for a while and in that time, I have of course still been reading. One of the books I’ve read (and have started to implement) in my life is: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo, in which she explains her KonMarie Method.
I am not a tidy person. I’m clean, but not tidy. My boyfriend can confirm this. I have trouble putting away the things I have used. Usually this means I leave a bit of a mess in my wake.
So, I decided that maybe it was time to change something. How better to start change than with a new book? Thus, I looked online and found The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying. I read up on it, watched a bunch of YouTube videos and then decided I had to read it for myself.
Now, I would like to share with all of you how I’ve been doing. Going through all the steps one by one. The first step, often overlooked I’ve noticed, is to ask yourself: why? Why do you want to do this, why do you want to reach that step, and why the next one, and why and why and why? Pretty much, you’re trying to be a 3-year-old. Until, at some point you reach the final answer: because I want to be happy.
So, I asked myself these questions, or should I say: this question? Anyway, I wanted to get my house more tidy, more streamlined to prevent the constant distractions that make everything in my head seem very loud. (Does that make sense to anyone?) There is a constant input of stimuli, which was disturbing me. So for me, the answer is exactly that. I want to get rid of all these extra stimuli so I can feel more relaxed, which will make me happy.
Next, I’ll report on the cleaning out of the clothes in our closets (the boyfriend is doing it too!). So follow along to see how this book (hopefully) changes my life for the better!
