I just finished reading a BEAUTIFUL book by Marie Kondo called
“The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.”
I highly recommend it. I loved the sweet feeling as I read Marie’s loving description on how to clean house. She spoke to my resistance to decluttering in her gentle, understanding way, and brought a new spiritual dimension to cleaning that I found refreshing and freeing.
She looks upon all things with gratitude and love, and even letting go of things can be done with grace and thanksgiving. Her perception that letting go of an unused item was freeing it to be of use to someone else, and that the item will be happier if it is used, was helpful to me.
When I saw there was a section on folding socks, my first reaction was “What, she even tells us how to fold socks? That doesn’t seem that important.” But that section turned out to be a very enlightening read, and one that I will never forget.
