To Tidy or Not To Tidy?

It seems that the Queen of Tidiness herself, Marie Kondo, may not have her house in order after all. According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Kondo's home is cluttered and messy, much to the surprise of her fans and the absolute relief of working parents around the world.

Now, I have to say, I'm not particularly shocked that a parent of three has an occasional messy house but this revelation has got people talking about what it means for the KonMari Method. Well, absolutely nothing. The KonMari Method is about finding joy in your possessions and creating a home that supports your happiness. It's not about having a pristine home 24/7, but rather a space that brings you peace and comfort. A mantra I like to utter under my breath as I wade through the endless toys scattered across my living room.

In fact, I think this revelation about Marie Kondo's messy house is a good thing. It reminds us that tidying is a lifelong process, and that it's okay to have a messy home from time to time (or the first 3 years of your childs life). It's about finding balance and being kind to ourselves, not about perfection.

After all, a messy house is often a sign of a life well lived. And that, my friends, is something to be celebrated!!
