Some people are really gung ho. Others are more skeptical, but willing to try it. Others pick and choose parts to apply to their lives.
That said, some of her principles intrigue me. The one where if the item doesn’t spark joy, get rid of it. I do have 1 piece of clothing that doesn’t spark joy, so I’m thinking it might need to go.
However, I will NOT be holding it in my hand, and thanking it for its service! I don’t believe inanimate objects have spirits, or the need for appreciation. That part is very hinky to me.
I do know once you tidied up, you will have more energy, and less depression, because I have experienced that for myself.
But, none of her clients have EVER had to re-tidy??? Somehow, I don’t quite believe that. So, maybe she never worked with any parents???? Or people on the hoarding scale??? Or people who are overwhelmed??? Anyway, that’s just my opinion, that part might not be entirely true. Or, maybe she has only been working less than 5 years??? I don’t know.
So, while I won’t be using her methods, I do agree that tidying up is very good for you! And we should all try it!
Just my thought on the jottings of that Japanese lady.
