Episode 4: MacGyvering KonMari

Talking points: Serenity Now!, Death by Perfectionism, and how Marie Kondo helped me write a novel.

This week, I’ll take you through the Serenity Prayer and suggest that perhaps we have been letting ourselves off too easy when it comes to one very important thing that might need to change in your life: You.

Also, just to counterbalance that perspective about changing yourself, I remind you that perfect is not the goal. Progress is the goal. We banish a few “p” words and take up a few more.

And, of course, you will hear my Ode to Marie Kondo. You can learn more about the fabulous Marie Kondo and her KonMari Method here.

Until the end of February 2022, readers of Lily Fields Challenge can get a discount on the stress relief jewelry from Levitayt I gratuitously raved about here. Use promo code LILY15.

Episode 46: Closet Inventory Sing With Your Feet

Talking Points: Antiquities, Costumes and Sentimental Items. The contents of our closets are not just things we wear, but we insist on treating them as such. It is useful to start viewing some of the things in our closets as souvenirs or artifacts.

I am passionate about contentment. This is a challenge, because I am equally passionate about progress. I get up at 4:00AM to chip away at a solution to this monolithic problem: how to make progress on my contentment. Born and raised in the USA, I married a French philosophy teacher in 1999. We have lived in France since 2007. We stayed young and carefree until life threw us two curveballs in the form of little humans one after another in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Now I am a slightly older, slightly more exhausted version of myself, but with mystery stains on my walls and a never-ending pile of laundry.
