  1. What a wonderful video to wake up to and start my day!!! I JUST moved to LA and JUST moved into my very own place for the first time in 25 years! I have been unpacking for the past 3 days and have had the MOST overwhelming feeling that I haven’t been able to shake, now I know why!!!! Thank You SO much ladies!! What a PERFECT time to unclutter my life and set myself up for success! I will definitely be sharing this!!! How ho’oponopono!!! ABSOLUTELY love it and will be doing additional research!!! Thank you again, I cannot express enough how much this just made my day!!!

  2. Hi There! I consider myself a pretty organized person, but after I returned from seeing family and friends on the east coast at the end of July, I spent five days reorganizing, throwing stuff out and cleaning. It was the best thing I could have done. I felt lighter and my mind got clearer and more focused. I’ve been going non-stop since then. This advice is priceless.

  3. I definitely have needed to clean out my “cubby space” in my apartment! I have these two cubbies from Ikea that have 8 squares each and all of them are filled with CRAP that I never use. I’ll be taking everything I haven’t touched since I moved in three months ago and selling it or giving it away. The extra space will make me feel centered every time I look at my cubbies and the extra money will be the cherry on top! 🙂

  4. Having traveled and lived in many countries has it’s positives and negatives. I find myself trying to be organized and navigate in LA all the time but still feel as though my navigation system is not guiding me the right way. I wonder if there is a way to be more organized in order to recognize what are the important things to tackle as an Actor. How to balance your life so that you are still driven, focus and on your way to be a working Actor all the while you are still able to give back and remain human.

  5. Omg, Kym thank you for sharing all of your amazing self. This is really helpful. It takes a lot of courage to transform oneself and being aware of the need to change is just the beginning. I’m definitely going to research Ho’oponopono to learn more about my limiting beliefs and get myself to be who I truly want to be. Thanks again!

  6. Awesome ideas to clean and clear up! I think I will tackle my desk! No matter what it is cluttered and I’m always behind on mail! I want to actually be able to put my arms on the desk! Thank you!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing these tips! I moved recently and did not bring much with me, and now I know why! I guess I was onto something with my minimalist lifestyle, and it feels soo good. I have now began research on ho’oponopono and can’t wait to start diving into the process 🙂 thanks again!

  8. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful insight. This also proves that we need to take classes during workshops, so we can present our best actor self in front of casting directors.

  9. Just recurved an actor prepares by constanti and my minded book is in its way so this would be a great audition. My plan is to stay researching local events for networking with film directors casting etc and finding classes to also develop my craft and connections.

  10. Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you
    I truly enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you suggest
    any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics?
