22 // Marie Kondo Didn’t “Give Up” on Tidying. Here’s What She Gave Up On - and 3 Ways You Can Do the Same
Manage episode 354259475 series 3395190
On January 26th, 2023, a Washington Post article about Marie Kondo, the patron saint of decluttering and tidying, was anything anyone could talk about on my Facebook and Instagram feeds.
Was it true? Had Marie Kondo, whose career exploded because of her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, truly “given up” on the very thing she said was life-changing now that she was a mom of three?
Reading the clickbait titles of online articles like these, it seemed to be true:
But in reading the Washington Post article itself, and looking at Kondo’s exact words, I’m not planning to let go of the decluttering and tidying systems in my home that help support my physical, emotional, and mental health. Kondo isn’t giving up on tidying in the sense that her house is going to be in the next episode of Hoarders. On the contrary, she has given up on something far more important. She has given up on unrealistic expectations, and issue that plagues me and pretty much every mom I’ve ever met.
So in today’s episode, we’re going to see Marie Kondo’s words for what they are and learn about the three things she can teach us about letting go of unrealistic expectations to live a life that truly sparks joy.
I help moms declutter their homes, heads, and hearts.
