Happy Motivational Monday everyone,
This weekend, I went home for the Thanksgiving holiday. During Thanksgiving dinner my mom was talking to relatives about this book she had read called “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo. Marie is the creator of the Kanmarie method and teaches the Japanese art of de-cluttering and organizing. What could possibly be so interesting about cleaning out your closet? Most of us, me included tend to hold on to things for many different reasons. Kondo explains and teaching people that if something doesn’t “spark joy” you should give it away or throw it out. It wasn’t until I saw a video of her explaining this feeling did I truly understand the concept.
Instead of going shopping on Black Friday, I decided to try this at home and purge my closets out. I had to hold each item and if I didn’t feel good, I put it in a pile to either give away or to donate it. The concept of “spark joy” isn’t just about cleaning out your closets. It’s about how we live our lives. I have included a link at the end of my video so you can see exactly how the process works. This season find out what brings you joy and let it spark something inside of you.
Here is Marie Kondo explaining her process.
Check out the video below!

One thought on “Happy Motivational Monday: Spark Joy”
I have her first book and I love it although for me it is a process and not something I want to do in one go like the book says. Would recommend it to everyone.
