3 Reasons Why you should KonMari Your Home Before Your Baby Arrives Part II

When a baby comes into your life, the last thing that you are going to have time for is cleaning and re-cleaning the house. You are going to be tired, and I’ll add in just a dash of feeling shattered physically, energetically and mentally, it comes with the occupational hazard of being a parent! Opps! The last thing I want you to worry about is taking care of your house.

Therefore, you need a system of tidiness in place that works so well, that it will permanently stay that way, even when your kids come, in fact, it could be something that you could educate your kids about from the get-go when they’re a little older! How cool! 

If you don’t believe me, as I personally didn’t, KonMari your house before your baby arrives months before, and just see how fantastic it is for just you and your partner/husband alone. 

Not to mention the amount of energy it is going to save you during your pregnancy, which is when you’re gonna want to nest, rest and digest. But, with the thought of the baby coming and all, it’s unlikely that you’re going to get a full nesting period if you feel like the house is not in order, especially if you already got a toddler in the house! Eliminate that as a potential worrisome thing because you totally have control over it. I guarantee that it will monumentally change the way you buy baby clothes or organize your nursery too – every KonMari practice has monumental impacts outside the actual confines of the book!

Scared about Giving Birth? Here's How to Completely Change Your Perspective on It

The true meaning of “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” some say is in fact, referring to the ‘walking’ through of the birth canal.

This is a reason why people have previously said that everyone knows God, they are not wrong (even for unbelievers), for without Him, one could not have come into this life, or kept a mother living to care for you and look after you thereafter - which again is another miracle in its own right. 

Who knows why some babies and some mammas don’t make it, that is truly a mystery left for us to uncover, for a much later, or if ever, time. There are accidents that happen, however, but the giving as well as taking of life, I believe, is wholly in the hands of God - as other things are of course too, but never more so than birth and death. 

What I hope this knowledge would help you is to let you know that you can wholeheartedly and entirely rely on the infinite, merciful, comforting God during the birthing process.
