"Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method is now a worldwide phenomenon.
I think so many of us have already read at least one of her books.
As a person who is so far away from “sparking joy” in life, I decided to re-read the book before I spiral out of control on my tidiness.
Rewarding your objects, thanking them, respecting them, and keeping a healthy relationship
with the ones you spark joy with will not only declutter your home, but also change your life.
Your personal belonging is the history of your life choices. Letting go of the things
that doesn’t spark joy with can be hard but a necessity to decluttering your life.
I hope to follow the KonMari method and spark joy myself. My life will be changing soon…maybe…" - Koko Ishihara
