Onwards and upwards!

It has been quiet on the Konmari front over here. My last weeks at various (freelance) jobs were demanding. I wanted to leave everything behind properly since I didn’t want to burden my former colleagues too much with my departure. That resulted in a final sprint that left little room for anything else in my mind, as lots of space is also taken up by managing the minions. It also resulted in a slightly slacker attitude towards maintaining the organisation in my house, and in the end some upkeep was needed. It wasn’t so bad as it could have been, however, and I am glad for it.

Now I am free (read: unemployed…) and ready to give Konmari the continuation it deserves. I must say that I have been aching to pursue it further, feeling the clutter in my house press in on me, my life, my mindspace and my possibilities of things I could do with my life. Okay, that sounds a wee bit too dramatic but the change that has come from making space so far has already been remarkable. I am lighter, happier, less stressed and I find it easier to ‘just deal with things’. It is wonderful to open my bathroom closet and have easy access to the things I need. It is just amazing for it to be so easy to put my clothes away at the end of the day – and pick them out again the next day. I cannot wait for it to be like this for all the categories in my house.

They were awesome. They were original. They were mine. They were painful. OUT!

And my handbag (read: backpack) thanks me for leaving her unburdened at the end of the day, I am sure.
