Quick read with a lot of Heart
Manga doesn’t usually inspire me, but something about the relatable nature of the main character convinced me to pick this book up. Like most Career driven Women, I find myself doing things ‘just for now’ and life becomes overwhelming very quickly. Things never have a designated home, within your own home, and it can easily frustrate me. The main character in this book, has a similar problem, and Marie Kondo helps her realize that without joy in our home life, it can negatively impact all other aspects of our lives. Not to mention the drawings are very sweet and encapsulates a lot of the emotions one can experience when tidying up the proper way. Great read, took maybe an hour. Inspired me to tidy the KonMari way! Thank you Marie Kondo, for sparking joy in my life!
