“Abundance is a process of letting go; that which is empty can receive.” - Bryant H. McGill
The book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo was introduced to us by our eldest daughter. She was getting ready to move out into her dorm for college and had read this book in a day. This became her mission and soon her mission became our family mission - spreading to every room in our house and boy was it life changing!
The rules (not all listed here) that were suggested in the book were as follows:
I loved being in my house more. Everything was in its place and organised.
This decluttering exercise was so therapeutic. I felt my entire house was revamped, and the energy was uplifting. I fell in love with my home for the first time! My mental state felt like it had been given an overhaul too. I was more aware of how I looked every day not just on days with friends or celebrations. My spending habits changed. I didn’t throw away money on sale items just because they were on sale. I had to love the item first and foremost. I saved a fortune on books by borrowing them from the library and kindle books are always cheaper than hard copies. House cleaning felt easier as everything had its place, nothing spilled over into other rooms. Everything had a purpose, a function.
So if you are feeling like you are in a funk or need uplifting, why not try overhauling your living space. Trust me, this experience is “Life Changing!!”

Our emotions and feelings are a physiological experience in the body. We are not our emotions. Emotions are created by us but saying “I am angry” is inferring that I am my emotions and by believing that, we are taking the control away from us to manage them. If you believe your emotions and you are one, then you would feel there is little you can do about it. It’s the way you were made, it’s your DNA. So Instead of saying “I am angry” you would say “I am experiencing feeling angry” when you understand that you are not your emotions. They are separate. You have the power and control over them.
