Why I Refuse To Watch Marie Kondo's Netflix Series ;)
Back in 2015, I was all about the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
But I think I got a little too trigger happy with the whole “does this spark joy?” movement.
I literally went through all of my things (my already minimal amount of things...because I move very often and I cannot stand clutter. I throw shit away ALL of the time) and threw everything out that didn’t spark joy.
I thought I was making space for things that DID spark joy for me. Except that “space” didn’t feel like space (I love space), it only felt like, “Oh crap, now I don’t have a winter jacket for my trip to Vancouver). Also, that “space” lasted a little too long and the things that sparked joy in me took a long time to come.
I threw out or donated my clothes, toiletries, household items, email subscriptions, contacts, people on my email list, programs, electronics, and furniture.
And some of this was my husband’s stuff because to be honest most of the furniture was my husband’s stuff that he bought as a single dude before we got married, and none of that mess sparked joy for sure.
So I ended up with even less clothing, an empty house with no furniture, and no one on my email list.
Plus, this was the first year that I took my business online, so funds were soooo not there to buy things that did spark joy in me (aka clothing from Anthropologie).
At least I kept the Vitamix :)
Now, 4 years later, I feel like my joy sparking factor (as far as my physical possessions go) has been restored. No Marie Kondo needed.
Her book served its purpose. Time to move on - for me at least.
