N-N-1: How Are Your New Years Resolutions Holding Up? A Check-In!

Right at the beginning of the year, Norm and Anju got in touch with me to kickstart our fab N-N-1 picture series for the brand new year. Anju took charge and compiled all the posts and pictures. What a great theme this was! I am definitely not a resolution person and I am exceptionally annoyed by the Reso-losers hogging the parking lot and the machines at the gym right now. Jk, I support everyone who embarks on the fitness journey whenever and wherever. But just don’t sit and text on the machines.

My post had to be about the massive challenge I took upon recently. I have finished with the hardest category, and a couple of laundry sessions after. So far, the folding and sorting has been quite successful! I want to ideally finish the checklist(they are freely available online if you simply google KonMari checklist) within the next month. I highly suggest getting started. It can be a little overwhelming, but it feels so good! The whole idea of de-cluttering is to keep only those things that truly give you happiness, that ‘spark joy’. Needless to say, a LOT of the xBF stuff was dumped out.

So, here is my entry and please go to the link to read up on the rest.

Sparking Joy

One fine day in the first week of January 2019, a little Japanese doll-like lady with a quiet demeanor and a calm force, came into my life. Marie Kondo in her Netflix special ‘Tidying Up’. Within the next few days, I had watched every possible #KonMarimethod video on YouTube and had printed out a checklist on how to follow her de-cluttering method. Last weekend, the closet and the dressers looked like a hurricane passed through them. But by Sunday evening, things that ‘sparked joy’ were hung in the right place and stashed with a higher level of organization. There were two bags of clothes to be trashed and three to be donated. Time to move to the next categories!

I may not have fancy resolutions, but now I know how to fold my clothes like Sushi.
