Sparking joy

Welcome! Since you have found my blog, I gather you are a kindred spirit in the search for a balanced life.

My journey began a couple of years ago when I found myself juggling an incredibly busy job, constantly chasing my tail and feeling I was letting people around me down. Not able to perform at the levels I hold myself to, and letting the home side down too in due course was an overwhelming experience at first, but it has helped me to clarify what is important for me and what isn’t, and it has taught me how to achieve and embrace balance.

Marie Kondo’s philosophy has been a key catalyst in curating the life I want – step by step. It’s not been a quick or straightforward journey, but – as Ralph Waldo Emerson said a long time ago – life is a journey, not a destination.

Please join me in my ongoing journey from decluttering my house, to restoring balance and (re)defining what works for me. This journey has made me challenge my idea of ‘perfection’ and step outside my comfort zone in more ways than one. Nearing completion of my own KonMari journey I am hoping to secure a coveted spot on Marie Kondo’s Consultant program to help other people enjoy the life-changing magic.

Follow me for my experiences, hits and misses, and key insights I have gathered along the way, and I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!
