Clean your house, change your life
As I read this book, I told my friends about it. While the writer seems fanatical at times, and I didn't follow the instructions to the letter, the procedures helped me to get rid of piles of unwanted possessions and to keep those that bring me joy. At first, the process was difficult, but after a while, there was space in the closets, space in the house, and space in my mind. Marie Kondo's philosophy of gratitude was my favorite section of the book. I realized that being grateful for what I have, rather than being resentful, is a key to happiness.
