Let Go With Gratitude

As you embark on your tidying adventure using the KonMari Method™, remember to above all focus on what you want to keep. Cherish the items that bring you joy, and let go of the rest with gratitude.

There’s an opportunity to learn from all the things in your life, including the ones that you discard. If you let go of a belonging you never used, it taught that you have no purpose for something like this in your life. Thinking deeply about each item you discard will affect how you live and acquire new things moving forward.

In the example above, I let go of sentimental items – photos – with a proper send off, using salt (a Japanese purification ritual) and expressing gratitude for what they’ve taught me.
