I appreciate Marie. Her words have helped me release a lot of clutter and get to know what I actually love. It seems that our external clutter is often tied to things we need to release internally.
She tackles, desks, offices, work hours, and meetings. Our responsibility in these things greatly needs to be addressed. Her co-writer also helps us tidy our digital life. This has been a huge challenge to me to learn how to tackle things daily and store things properly.
Marie shared how she was afraid of going into television because people can be so cruel. Someone told her that she should do what she felt led to do because people hated her already. She was completely shocked that people would hate her for her work in tidying so she googled herself. The first thing she read was an article entitled "Why We Hate Marie Kondo." After reading these things, she decided to go ahead with television. I am thankful for her tenacity and courage. Great read.
I am reading Marie Kondo’s new book Joy At Work (due out on April 7th). As you can guess, it’s about tidying your work space. She opened with, “Is your desk always covered in clutter?” I felt like I had already nailed chapter one (even though I’m still sorting through things). Now she’s all in my digital life. Oh man. It’s time to tackle that inbox and the 27,000 photos I have on my phone. (I also painted the antique table that sat by my grandmother’s pool and have been enjoying family dinners out there every night). #tidy #tablelove #roses #bookends #mariekondo #joyatwork #joyatworkbook #littlebrownandcompany.
