The title had my name on it! Well, it had the word Joy in it, and Joy is one of my Important Words this year 🙂 So I had to take a look and see what it had to say. It’s all about tidying up! Over the holidays I had come across the Minimalism movement – embracing a life of less clutter, which seemed like an attractive idea to me – and the Spark Joy book has given me a method to begin! What Marie Kondo emphasizes is the importance of having around you just the things that bring you joy – surround yourself with joy, and discard everything else. Step one – Clothes. It took me a while to change my mindset away from getting rid of things I don’t wear much to the much more positive view of ‘which of these clothes sparks joy in me?’ But I soon got into the swing of things.
So I got everything out of the wardrobe and did the ‘joy test’ on every item, and put the rest in a pile.
So off to the charity shop I will go, and what remains is a wardrobe full of joyful clothes!
Have a joyful day 🙂
