I have been on a personal journey over the last year and a half. My goal was to remove negativity to make space for more joy and gratitude. I started with a meditation class; meditation did not come naturally to me. I grew up in a loving but traditional family. Meditation and self-reflection were too new-age for my parents. So I need help with this concept. I took a class that opened me up to the beautiful world of inner peace. The practice of meditation has helped me change the way I react to external stresses. I am now taking the next step and trying to find joy in everyday tasks. I have committed to spending time outside in nature; to be honest, some of this is due to my new puppy Georgia, but I am enjoying being outside even in the pouring rain or freezing temperatures! I am also trying to learn from Marie Kondo and her method of decluttering. I realize that there is a connection between a cluttered home/workspace and a cluttered mind. I love Jay Shetty’s podcasts, and if you have not heard of him, I recommend looking up his videos on youtube. He suggests we create more positive experiences in our lives, and for me, that starts at home. I want to not only create a beautiful clutter-free lifestyle for myself but also my clients. I want everyone to benefit from the power of an uplifting environment.
Today I am going to tackle the category (as Marie Kondo suggests, choose a category not a room) of clothing. I was going to start with paper to clean up my office, but, Konmari method teaches that you need to learn the techniques slowly. Clothes are easier to organize and I am looking for immediate gratification!
I will find joy in today by spending time in nature, meditating, working (I love my job), and cleaning my closets.
