There is a freedom at the intersection of: entrepreneurship, enlightenment and enchantment. The path of Grace, lined with 22,000+ documented moments of daily gratitude (1999-2018), lead me here. Enjoy the daily wisdom funnies, especially the present day commentaries!

Do NOT go to X for relationship advice. Go to people with an actually successful relationship that I want to emulate. #reverserolemodel #partnership

Grace sent a text check in before I flew off on my RTW 2015 Freedom Tour. She remembered <3 I felt so loved. #sisterhood #love

I look at my bed and feel so much joy. Cushy pillows, soft sheets, journals, iPad, consciousness audiobooks, aromatherapy, beauty, order and delight! Happiness, pink, and joy! #bliss #peace #presence

Thank you body for letting me have a massage first, then going home to eat. Thank you so, so much for the flexibility. #lol #nourish #selfcare

I can have community, without living with them in-person #aha

Asking myself why it hurts... but it's not pain that I feel... it's pure joy and gratitude. #wtf #whoknew #turningpoint
[Commentary: Sad and sweet that I never felt or remembered feeling joy and gratitude, so when they hit me, they were a very foreign sensation that my mind couldn't handle. So foreign and unknown that my mind registered them as pain. Sigh. Live and learn... live and grow. #enlightenment #quest #healing]

Proud of self for asking driver to go back to hotel for my GoPro camera
[Commentary: Hehehe, I always chuckle at entries like these that show how my mind was indoctrinated to believe that it is NOT ok to ask for help, life-threatening even to ask for help. Sigh. #aha #wisdom #growing]

Adrienne planned THE most fabulous Thanksgiving weekend and I thank her profusely. She responded with, "What can I say, I'm a recovering over-achiever!" Lol! That's the line *I* use all the time. #overachievers #tribe #sisterhood

Every time I look at how much money is actually coming in, I'm comforted that I'm ok. It's when I drift into the unknown [aka mind wandering into future worst case scenario] that I get all frazzled. #aha #discernment #presence

Got my panties in a knot over Camtasia and a bunch of screen sharing software when in the end I could have just used Zoom. It's not scarcity hindering me anymore, it's... over-resourcefulness? ...inability to keep it simple...? #inquiry #discernment #turningpoint

Resigned [from corporate gig]! So much relief and best feeling in the world!! Never trapped like this ever again!!! #turningpoint #boom #lifestyleentrepreneur

Holy wow: using my HSP pause-to-check trait (innate strength / light side of HSP) to ease SLOWLY into relationship with J, as oppose to diving in starved-for-love (innate weakness / shadow side of HSP) to the depths of my own doom. Thank god for Elaine Aron's book "Highly Sensitive People in Love"!!! #mentor #turningpoint #love

Reducing 1480 Facebook friends to 908 friends. No FOMO, no regret, just quality over quantity. #boom #bliss #enchantment

I do bring #joy wherever I go. Especially to hosts and waitresses. #aha #seeing
[Commentary: These entries of "I do bring joy to xyz..." keep repeating themselves. Dang, I wish I had re-read all my gratitude journal entries sooner!! How odd that I didn't see and/or believe that I bring joy to others. How interesting... #remember]

Huh, interesting. My most popular review on TripAdvisor is the rose garden in Buenos Aires, Argentina park, where I was singing, "We're painting the roses red. We're painting the roses red." from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. No helpful logistic or tips. Just recounting an experience of magic and wonderment. #enchantment #presence

Filling out CTI Leadership form. So glad I don't have any ailments or aches or body pains that prevent me from higher self-development. So grateful. Ever so grateful! #nourish #freedom

Wow cool, my new approach to travel is: save some for later (instead of MUST SEE EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW!!!!). What a mindset shift! It only took 89 countries under my belt to achieve this realisation. Hahaha. Haha. Ha. #lol #enlightenment #dieperfectionistdie

X and I met twice and she'll start saving to work with me. I don't need lot of time to go deep with people. Just need to be really really really present. #wisdom #presence

Brunch on Main St, nap and birthday party. Next day: late lunch, Despicable Me movie, vulnerability tears during movie, making out, frozen yogurt, and sleepover. Next day: grandma memorial, dim sum with family, cake, conversation, love, ramen, driven home. What a life! #bliss #family #lifestyleentrepreneur

With infinite grace, freedom on!

xo, Ella
