  • "Clutter really comes from that conflict between who we think we should be and who we actually are."
  • "Authenticity means being true to yourself."
  • "It's an active choice to choose what you love."
  • "Accepting it into your life by choice, not by default, is really important."
  • "Choosing a life of joy is really a radical idea, and it's also one that's worth pursuing."
