Thanks to Leslie, I've been listening to Marie Kondo's audiobook "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying", and it has been pretty life changing. See the chopsticks below? The ones in the holder had remained wrapped, unused and stored away in a kitchen drawer for years. What was I waiting for? The old chopsticks to break? The book taught me to appreciate things for the joy they bring and then when they've served their purpose to let them go. Even sentimental things have their time. So, I thanked the old chopsticks for their years of service and I threw them away. It felt pretty liberating. If you google "konmari" you can view other people's accounts of how Marie Kondo's methods have affected their lives.
