Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo is a Japanese organization consultant who’s extremely famous for devising her “KonMari” method.  In short, the method describes a way to organize items, determine if the item sparks joy and subsequently appreciate/thank the items that have accumulated over the years.  Items that spark joy with the owner are kept while those that no longer do should be discarded.  My interpretation is that the KonMari method is a mindfulness and introspection technique applied not only personally but also to the items that surround us.

Netflix has this new show that stars Kondo helping different families organize their lives.  Kondo is absolutely bubbly in each of the episodes.  This show is an absolute pleasure to watch.  Her happiness and exuberance in helping the families also makes me happy as well.
