    "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."
