Ella's Rising Strong Journal

Overcame...   Grateful for...
Developmental trauma










Built Strong Wings then Leap!


Never smoked a cigarette
Bullying Never took any drugs
Ostracizing isolation Never numbed out with food / sex / another person
Chronic toxicity Never been drunk or hung over (have had 5 alcoholic drinks in my life, mostly to placate others so they stopped feeling horribly uncomfortable with my not drinking)
Emotional neglect Have peace, space and abundant time to just be
Physical violation Have a six-figure location-independent boutique coaching practice
Chronic anxiety Have soulmate friends who understand me and champion me
Frequent visceral nightmares Can go anywhere and do anything, (mostly) whenever I want
Cyclical depression Live the true meaning of joy, wholeness, and oneness
Crying self to sleep for years Laugh daily with loved ones
Ghosting + gaslighting Feel fulfilled and on purpose, every single day
Chronic stress   Embraced in the most unconditional love by the most loving tribe
Repeat heartbreak   Love my body and vitality
Systematic shame   Read a book a week
Betrayal   Have kept daily gratitude entries since 1999!!
Traumatic shock   Infused with a sense of safety and preciousness, gifted from the Universe
Multiple identity crisis   Integrating what it means to be a spirit having a human experience
Deep loss and grief   Traveled to 100+ countries on my own dime

"You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great."
